Record of a Soldier in the Late War: The Confederate Memoir of John Wesley Bone, edited by Julianne Bone Mehegan and David Mehegan (November 2014)
John Wesley Bone's diary gives the reader the gritty essence of the Civil War. While it is one man's memory of a volunteer fighting for the Confederacy, it is also a portrait of what daily life was like for the common soldier on both sides of the conflict. In plain, straight-forward language, Bone describes the exploding confusion of battle, the fear, quiet courage, bloody marching feet, rampant sickness, bitter cold and fetid heat of that brutal time. The beautifully-designed diary, edited by Bone's great granddaughter, Julianne Mehegan and her husband, David, will resonate with readers on either side of the Mason-Dixon Line, be they Civil War memorabilia collectors or simply people who want a first-hand account of history.
There will be light refreshments—Bring your bag lunch!
