Read A Diary from Dixie by Mary Chesnut. This original diary of the wife of Confederate General James Chesnut, Jr., who was also an aide to President Jefferson Davis, contains the Southern view of the Civil War, documenting the lives of the Confederate upper class at its end. Literary critics call the diary a work of art and the most important work of a Confederate author.
