Virginia at War, 1864

The fourth book in the Virginia at War series casts a special light on vital home front matters in Virginia during 1864. Following a year in which only one major battle was fought on Virginia soil, 1864 brought military campaigning to the Old Dominion. For the first time during the Civil War, the majority of Virginia's forces fought inside the state's borders. Yet soldiers were a distinct minority among the Virginians affected by the war. In Virginia at War, 1864, scholars explore various aspects of the civilian experience in Virginia including transportation and communication, wartime literature, politics and the press, higher education, patriotic celebrations, and early efforts at reconstruction in Union-occupied Virginia. The volume focuses on the effects of war on the civilian infrastructure as well as efforts to maintain the Confederacy. As in previous volumes, the book concludes with an edited and annotated excerpt of the Judith Brockenbrough McGuire diary.

Review

"A worthy addition to a very fine series."—Emory M. Thomas, author of Robert E. Lee: A Biography"

"The most fully rounded account of Virginia's wartime experience."—Charles P. Roland, author of Reflections on Lee: A Historian's Assessment"

"Like the other volumes in this series, "Virginia at War, 1864" is a useful volume that will expand the knowledge of most readers. It deserves a home on the bookshelf of anyone who wants to know more about Virginia's role in the War Between the States."—Free Lance-Star"

"Davis and Robertson have created a series that is both accessible to interested readers and useful to academics. This series offers a model for the sesquicentennial commemorations and a firm promise to tell the entire story of the Civil War in Virginia." —H-Net Reviews"

"The authors of the essays in this book get into subjects that are too often ignored. . . . This is a great read, and I would like to see more of these subjects addressed by future publications."—TOCWOC"—
