Author: [Loughborough, Mary Ann Webster] Title: [American Civil War] MY CAVE LIFE IN VICKSBURG WITH LETTERS OF TRIAL AND TRAVEL.

The diary offers a unique personal account of the siege of Vicksburg and the deprivations suffered by the civilian population as the Union army surrounded the city. Its popularity led to a second edition (1882) published in Little Rock, where Mary and her husband settled.
