Summary
"This is a close examination of refugees during the Civil War. Taking inspiration from the account of refugee life in William D. Herrington's 'The Refugee's Niece,' published in 1864 in Raleigh, NC's weekly magazine The Mercury, Silkenat expands on Mary Elizabeth Massey's study of Confederate refugees Refugee Life in the Confederacy, published in 1964. Fulfilling what he believes to be Massey's original intention, Silkenat explains that one of the most significant features of the Confederate refugee crisis was the diversity in race, gender, class, and political ideologies of those who were displaced due to the Civil War. The book will explore five distinct groups within the refugee population: African Americans fleeing slavery, white Unionists fleeing to Union lines, pro-Confederates seeking safety from the Unionists, white Confederate refugees moving their slaves, and daughters sent by parents to secure locations like boarding schools"--Priovided by publisher
