Tara Revisited: Women, War and the Plantation Legend by Catherine Clinton

Book: Tara Revisited: Women, War and the Plantation Legend
Author: Catherine Clinton
Narrator (if applicable): n/a

Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: Ms. Clinton discusses the myth of the pre-Civil War Plantation and the role of women, including female slaves,  in running the "farms" during the active fighting years. First hand accounts and photos are present through out the book.
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: Although I knew the better chunk of this information already, I loved the first hand accounts and the plentiful pictures the author provided to supplement this well researched book. I love putting a face/name of the Civil War. I have already read several hundred books on the Civil War. This book would be awesome to show the strength of women during this period of time instead of only focusing on Rosy the Riveter from WWII.
