Description: "In 1905, when Neale Publishing Company printed Frances Thomas Howard's "In and Out of the Lines" it was felt that perhaps too much attention was given to minute details. Present day readers of this book would be inclined to disagree. We all owe Miss Howard a debt of gratitude for recording the events of everyday life for Southern Women during the Civil War ... With over 100,000 books devoted to the battles and leaders of the Civil War, this book is unique in that it deals with the often overlooked role of civilians in the war. Miss Howard's descriptions of the trials and adventures of her family's life behind enemy lines is evidence that civilians suffered hardships as great as those endured on the field of battle. This book has been our of print for 92 years and it is our pleasure, in conjunction with the Etowah Valley Historical Society, to have this book republished." [From the Introduction]
