Mobley touches on the experiences of everyone on the home front - white and black, male and female, rich and poor, young and old, native and foreign born. He looks at health, agriculture, industry, transportation, refugees, city life, religion, education, culture, families, personal relationships, and public welfare. In so doing, he offers his perspective on how much the "will of the people" contributed to the final defeat of the Southern cause."--Jacket." ;
