"My Childhood Recollections of the War"
By Margaret Briscoe Stuart Robertson
Rare Staunton, Virginia child's Civil War memoir
In 1915, Margaret Stuart Robertson (the daughter of noted legislator Alexander H.H. Stuart) wrote a 10-page memoir of what life had been like in Staunton, Virginia, during the War Between the States. She published the memoirs in 1925 for her friends and family. "My Childhood Recollections of the War" has been out of print ever since and it is the only known first-hand account of the war in Staunton as viewed by a child.
Offered here -- published for the first time for a mass audience -- is her memoir, with a foreword that gives an overview of her life. There are photos of Margaret Stuart Robinson, her father, Robert E. Lee (whom she describes in a visit to her home), the Stuart mansion (which still stands) and a compelling sketch of Confederate soldiers on the march. This four-color, 6 x 9-inch publication is 16 pages in length.
