Summary
"LeRoy Wiley Gresham of Macon, Georgia kept a series of seven journals between 1860 and 1865 that documents the entirety of the Civil War. Starting at the age of 12, his writing covers not only the changes in Macon, but the socio-economic impact of the conflict on his wealthy family, which owns two plantations about 40 miles southeast of Macon. His journals also trace his internal struggles with his health, giving us a very unique glimpse into the course of his struggle against tuberculosis, a disease which killed thousands each year during the 19th century, and claimed his own life at age 17"--Provided by publisher
