about this item

Greatly loved by those who served under him, Lieutenant Colonel William Gaston Delony possessed three admirable attributes: "commanding presence, bull dog courage, and superb generalship." This book relays the story of a young man, on the cusp of a promising law career in the 1850s who comes to the conclusion that his way of life, and that of his neighbors, is about to change forever. Interwoven with those of his wife, Rosa Eugenia Huguenin, the Delony correspondence furnishes us a window into the lives of independent individuals during the Civil War who also happened to be well-placed in society due to birth. These writings give the reader insights into what soldiers thought and felt, and of what their families went through, both on the battlefield and at home.
