A Southern Woman’s Story
By: Phoebe Yates Pember
With a new introduction by George C. Rable
First published in 1879, A Southern Woman’s Story chronicles Phoebe Pembler’s experiences as matron of the Confederate Chimborazo Hospital from November 1862 until the fall of Richmond in April 1865. No Dilettante’s romance or saccharine Lost Cause tale, it is a remarkably frank treatment of Confederate social and medical history. Long an important source in confederate history, it is also a valuable book for students and scholars of women’s history and the social history of the Civil War.
