Romance Amid the Ruins: The Confederate Letters of General Gabriel Wharton and Nannie Radford” with William C. Davis

Recently the 1863-1865 correspondence between Confederate Brigadier General Gabriel Wharton and his wife Nannie Radford were found. They wrote to each other every day and all 524 of their letters have survived.

Davis has edited the letters, which appeared in print this past July.
