When Confederate men marched off to battle, southern women struggled with the new responsibilities of directing farms and plantations, providing for families, and supervising increasingly restive slaves. Drew Faust offers a compelling picture of the more than half-million women who belonged to the slaveholding families of the Confederacy during this period of acute crisis, when every part of these women's lives became vexed and uncertain. Faust chronicles the clash of the old and the new within a group that was at once the beneficiary and the victim of the social order of the Old South.

Drew Gilpin Faust is president of Harvard University. Her books include<i>Southern Stories: Slaveholders in Peace and War</i> and <i>The Creation of Confederate Nationalism: Ideology and Identity in the Civil War South.</i>

Introduction : all the relations of life
What shall we do? : women confront the crisis
A world of femininity : changed households and changing lives
Enemies in our households : Confederate women and slavery
We must go to work, too
We little knew : husbands and wives
To be an old maid : single women, courtship, and desire
An imaginary life : reading and writing
Though thou slay us : women and religion
To relieve my bottled wrath : Confederate women and Yankee men
If I were once released : the garb of gender
Sick and tired of this horrid war : patriotism, sacrifice, and self-interest
Epilogue : we shall never ... be the same
Afterword : the burden of southern history reconsidered
