1 COLT, Margaretta Barton DEFEND THE VALLEY. A Shenandoah Family in the Civil War
New York Orion Books 1994 0517593157 / 9780517593158 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 
xv+441pp. Illus. in text. Fore-edge just a little dusty. Two prominent families united by marriage, the Bartons and the Joneses, witnessed the Civil War in all its fury from their homes in the Shenandoah Valley, the heartland of the Confederacy. In this remarkable book, one of their descendants has gathered and edited the papers of twenty family members to tell the moving story of ordinary people engulfed by extraordinary events. The family sent eleven sons into battle, most in the legendary brigade led by Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. Letters and diaries from the home front reveal the courage with which the women handled the households and the struggle they faced to maintain their farms and businesses in the once prosperous valley. Well illustrated. Select Bibliography and Index. (May require additional postage on overseas orders).
