In 1864, Sarah Steer, Lizzie Dutton and Lida Dutton set out to create a defiantly pro-Union newspaper inside Dixie in Waterford, Virginia. Collected here for the first time are all eight issues of the long-lost Waterford News. Together they provide a fascinating and moving account of the Civil War as it affected lives in one corner of Virginia. The three brave editors, risking arrest or worse, leaven eyewitness accounts of hardship and horror with youthful wit and unabashed patriotism.
