This volume gives a vivid picture of the day-by-day trials endured by the citizens of Winchester during the Civil War. Quarles draws heavily from the diaries of five local women who were observant and articulate in recording the events of the time. Four of these women were Southern sympathizers and the fifth was a Northern sympathizer. All five were Winchester residents who had fist hand knowledge of the ordeals encountered by war.
