At age seventeen Belle Boyd shot and killed a Union soldier; at age nineteen she was in a Union prison, a Confederate spy who got caught. A spunky West Virginia girl full of charm and with a zest for adventure, Belle worked among the highest-ranking officers and the lowliest foot soldiers of the Civil War with an indomitable spirit that defied Union authority. Like many historical figures, in retrospect Belle Boyd may appear larger than life, but in this delightful biography her life is portrayed within its actual dimensions.

They present a mosaic of events, places, and people, exploring the impact of the war on Georgia and its residents and demonstrating the importance of the state to the outcome of the Civil War.

Macon is located at the head of navigation on the Ocmulgee River in the center of Georgia.

This amazing diversity would serve Macon well in the desperate struggle that was to come. Now, for the first time in such detail, is the story of Macon, Georgia, during the Civil War.
