|About the Book|
t is well-written, easy to read, and gives a small glimpse into the life of a soldier’s wife who went with the camp in 1861 and following.The end talks about her good life, with basic equality, in Massachusetts (which gives me a fonder view of that state than I have heretofore had) and the horror she experienced on a trip from there to Shreveport to reach the side of her dying son.There are several things I don’t understand. Why did she give up her child? Why didn’t she say how she met her husbands? Was she really 14 when she married Sgt. King?But it was an interesting book.
