Description
							Charles Minor Blackford, an aristocrat from Virginia, enlisted in the Second Virginia Cavalry at the start of the American Civil War. During his tour of duty, Captain Blackford kept constant correspondence with his wife, Susan Leigh Blackford. Captain Blackford wrote frequently about the horrible conditions in his camp, while Susan detailed her own struggles, including the loss of her home and the death of three children.  This collection of letters highlights the misery of war - from the violence on the battlefield to the hardships of the home front - and offers a first-hand account of how the Civil War affected families.
