Janet Croon talked about the book The War Outside My Window: The Civil War Diary of LeRoy Wiley Gresham. Gresham was a 12-year-old boy from a wealthy slave-holding family in Georgia when he began keeping a diary right as the secession crisis began to unfold and the Civil War got underway. He continued to keep a diary and capture a civilian perspective on events through many personal health issues until 1865 when the war ended and he succumbed to his ailments. The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum in Atlanta hosted this talk. close
