Collection: Mary Chesnut

The Chesnuts hosted gatherings for the upper echelon of southern society at their family-owned plantations in proximity to Camden, which were run by 450 enslaved individuals. Following the passing of Mary Chesnut, her journals were made public. A Diary from Dixie (1905), an autobiographical account by Mary Boykin Miller Chesnut, provides a firsthand depiction of the American Civil War through the lens of a general's spouse who sided with the Confederacy. The memoir vividly illustrates the impact of the war on both the everyday commoner and the key political figures.
