The Civil War Diaries and Letters of the Bernard Sisters of Virginia
edited by Rebecca Campbell Light
with an introduction by Robert K. Krick
These never-before-published diaries and letters dramatically illustrate the struggles women faced in war-ravaged Virginia. Such notable military greats as Gen. J.E.B. Stuart, Col. W.H.F. "Rooney" Lee and Maj. John "The Gallant" Pelham were frequent guests of the Bernard sisters at the beautiful "Gay Mont" plantation located on the Rappahannock River, south of Fredericksburg.
