Summary
Dolly Sumner Lunt begins her diary, published in 1918, by recalling her anxiety about the approach of General Sherman's Union army on January 1, 1864. Despite her efforts to hide her valuable possessions, the Union troops raid her house and plantation and take her slaves with them. They also set fire to cotton bales in her barn, but the blaze burns out before spreading. In her last entries, dated December 1865, Lunt writes optimistically about the recovery of her farm, her new sharecropping system, and the first cheerful Christmas in years
