Summary The ""official"" account of the Civil War is well known by many, but this sweeping narrative often overlooks the experiences and impressions of individuals. Life in Dixie During the War offers up a fascinating first-hand account of what it was like to actually live through this tumultuous period in American history. According to some, this book was part of the inspiration for Margaret Mitchell's novel Gone With the Wind.
