United States Supreme Court Justice James Moore Wayne is the most famous Georgian nobody knows. When his home state seceded from the Union in 1861, Wayne retained his seat on the US Supreme Court and remained loyal to the Union as the nation lunged headlong into war. He knew the insanity of secession, and warned of the folly of disunion, but his son, Col. Henry Wayne, resigned his commission in the US Army and cast his lot with the Confederacy. This book tells their story and examines the nature of Georgia’s strong and largely overlooked unionist sentiment in the decades before the Civil War.

Through novels such as Gone with the Wind, the story of the fall and destruction of Atlanta has joined myths of other lost cities such as Atlantis, Troy, and Jericho. Sallie Clayton's memoirs show us the reality of Civil War Atlanta from Secession to the memorials to the fallen, many years after the war. Sallie was a member of one of Georgia's wealthiest and most prominent families. Her memoirs detail the losses her family suffered. Moreover, Sallie seems to have been in all the wrong places throughout the war. From her we have a first-hand account of war-torn Atlanta, plantation life during the war, the opening shots of the battle for Chattanooga, and of postwar riots in Augusta and Athens.

Saddle Bag and Spinning Wheel is an as-it-was-happening chronicle of two persons caught up in the events of the Civil War themselves. There are 216 letters, the personal correspondence between George Washington Peddy, surgeon, 56th Georgia Volunteer Regiment, CSA, and his wife Kate. More of his letters (166) than hers (50) survived. Nevertheless the chronicle is complete (October 1861-April 1865).
