Description/Standards Tabs


Walter Edgar discusses with Martha Daniels and Henry Fulmer about references made to the photo album found in Mary Chesnut’s diary, along with references found in the South Caroliniana Library’s collections.  After Mary Chesnut’s death, the albums disappeared, and Mrs. Daniels chronicles how they were found, and once again re-united with the famous diary.  Inside the albums are portraits of notable Civil War figures, and family members.
