Year in the South: 1865, AThe True Story of Four Ordinary People Who Lived Through the Most Tumultuous Twelve Months in History

A slave determined to gain freedom, a widow battling poverty and despair, a man of God grappling with spiritual and worldly troubles, and a former Confederate soldier seeking a new life. They lived in the South during 1865—a year that saw war, disunion, and slavery give way to peace, reconstruction, and emancipation. Between January and December 1865, these four people witnessed, from very different vantage points, the death of the Old South and the birth of the New South. Civil War historian Stephen V. Ash reconstructs their daily lives, their fears and hopes, and their frustrations and triumphs in vivid detail—telling a dramatic story of real people in a time of great upheaval and offering a fresh perspective on a pivotal moment in history.
