"The mountains of western North Carolina never attracted much notice from either side during the Civil War - or from Civil War scholars since. But as this book reveals, how the region endured those four years of conflict tells us much about the dynamics of the Confederate home front and about the social, political, and economic complexities of Southern Appalachian society in the mind-nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET.
