???? On the night of March 11, 1862, as the heavy tramp of Confederate marching troops died away in the distance-her husband's regiment among them-Cornelia Peake McDonald began her diary of events in war-torn Winchester, Virginia.??? ?McDonald's story of the Civil War records a personal and distinctly female battle of her own-a southern woman's lonely struggle in the midst of chaos to provide safety and shelter for herself and her children. For McDonald, history is what happens "inside the house." She relates the trauma that occurs when the safety of the home is disrupted and destroyed by the forces of war-when women and children are put out of their houses and have nowhere to go.???? Whether she is describing a Union soldier's theft of her Christmas cakes, the discovery of a human foot in her garden, or the death of her baby daughter, McDonald's story of the Civil War at home is compelling and disturbing. Her tremendous determination and unyielding spirit in the face of the final collapse of her world is testimony to a woman's will to preserve her family and her own sense of purpose as a "rebel" against all that she regarded as tyrannical and brutal in war itself. 19th century,americas,biographies,civil war,historical,history,leaders and notable people,memoirs,military,modern (16th-21st centuries) Biographies, University of Wisconsin Press
