Dark Days in Our Beloved Country: The Civil War Diary of Catherine Hopkins Broun

18.00

Catherine Broun lived in northern Virginia during the Civil War. She went to battlefields, saw the battle of Middleburg, smuggled goods across the Potomac into Virginia, and had her home frequently invaded by Union troops passing through the area to and from battle. Broun was a strong Confederate supporter, and supported John Singleton Mosby and his 43rd Battalion. Two of her own brothers rode with Mosby. Catherine gives an eyewitness account of both Union and Confederate generals, cavalrymen, infantry and civilians' experiences. Her diary is a insightful, witty, and unforgettable record of our nation's most brutal war.

Edited and annotated by MHAA Board Member Lee Lawrence.
