First-hand accounts of American Christmases during tumultuous 1861 through 1864 describe how Northern and Southern civilians and soldiers celebrated Christmas during the American Civil War. Letters, individuals' accounts, and newspaper articles of the time reveal what the populace was (and in some cases, was not) eating, and what other activities went toward creating holiday merriment. “Making the best of a bad situation” is the theme that shines throughout this book. Paperback 38 pages
