This is the rural... more...

    University Press of Florida 2012; US$ 85.00

  • Yours Till Deathby John Cotton; Lucille Griffith

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 26.95

    "These letters from a yeoman farmer in the Confederate Army to his wife in Coosa County, Alabama, will be of interest to historians not only for the light shed upon the life of the Confederate soldier, but also for frequent allusions to rural life and the operation of the farm in Cotton's absence. He enlisted at Pinckneyville, Alabama, on April 1,... more...
