The Leverett Letters: Correspondence of a South Carolina Family, 1851-1868 The Leverett Letters: Correspondence of a South Carolina Family, 1851-1868
Edited by Frances Wallace Taylor, Catherine Taylor Matthews, J. Tracy Power  
"It will be an extreme disadvantage to you all your life, not to be able to make easy use of your pen," Mary Maxcy Leverett lectured one of her sons on the art of letter writing in May 1863. Adopting her keen interest in lively, well-written correspondence, Mary's nine children wrote home frequently as they ventured from their South Carolina plantation to college, postgraduate study, travel in Europe, and service in the Confederate army. Little did they realize that these letters, which served as a vital means of communication within the family, would offer a window into the world of the southern planter class for readers almost a century and a half later. As compelling as fiction, the 230 letters collected in this volume paint a vivid, very personal portrait of southern life from the late antebellum era through Reconstruction. Buy this book now
