Book Description
Edited by Eugene H. Berwanger with a New Introduction by William E. Gienapp

William Howard Russell wrote MY DIARY NORTH AND SOUTH while traveling through the Union and the Confederacy from March 1861 to April 1862 as a war correspondent for the TIMES of London. Along the way he met and interviewed an impressive number of Union and Confederate leaders--including Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, William H. Seward, and General George B. McClellan--but he also canvassed average citizens on both sides, recounting their manners, appearance, values, and habits in remarkable detail. This memoir of his journey provides a vivid snapshot of American life and culture at the dawn of the Civil War.
