|Context||Andrews lived in the South during the war.|
|Purpose||To chronicle her experiences during the war|
Born into a prominent, slave-holding Georgia family in 1840, Frances Andrews chronicled life on the homefront as General Sherman's Union forces marched through the state. She spent much of 1864 and 1865 living with an older sister whose husband was absent, fighting in the Confederate Army. The diary was published more than forty years later.
