Long out of print, this volume of recollections, stories, and verse provides a glimpse of women's lives on the home front-and sometimes in the thick of battle-during the War between the States. Nearly fifty years after the American Civil War, Lucy Worth London Anderson (Mrs. John Huske Anderson) of Fayetteville, N.C., compiled one of the first memorial collections honoring the contributions of women to the cause. Her book North Carolina Women of the Confederacy assembled biographies, anecdotes, letters, reminiscences, and poems concerning Southern women's experience during the war. This early historical text is once again available in a new edition featuring a clean and corrected setting of the type, historical introduction and annotations, and a valuable index of personal and place names. Scholars, geneaologists, and casual readers alike will appreciate the reintroduction of this Southern classic, prepared under the auspices of the UDC Cape Fear Chapter #3. Lucy London Anderson served as North Carolina historian of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in the 1920s. She first published this record of episodes in the history of the Confederate women of her state in 1926. 3

    Living in Jacksonville, Oregon for 24 years gives me a special vision of the many facets of this historic community. Driving into town, a traffic sign reduces your speed from 45 mph to 25.
