1 BLAKEY, Arch Fredric et al ROSE COTTAGE CHRONICLES - Civil War Letters of the Bryant-Stephens Families of North Florida
Gainsville University Press of Florida 1998 0813015502 / 9780813015507 First Edition Hard Cover Nr Fine Nr Fine 
x+389pp+illustrations. Set both at home in North Florida and at the front, these letters and diaries capture the heart of everyday life of the period. The letters were written from 1858 to mid-1865 by two generations of the Bryant and Stephens families, ordinary Confederate folk whose members included radical secessionists, moderates and even a few Unionists. The women describe their hatred of Yankee invaders, their emotions dealing with slaves and fear of being abandoned by the Government. The men describe the endless marches, battles of Olustee and Natural Bridge, skirmishes around Jacksonville and even distant military events such as Gettysburg. A riveting family saga. Bibliography and Index.
