LibriVox recording of A Rebel's Recollections by George Eggleston. Read in English by Lee Smalley George Cary Eggleston's Civil War memoir begins with a separate essay on the living conditions and political opinions of Virginia’s citizenry before secession. Eggleston praises its war heroes, Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jeb Stuart, but is highly critical of Jefferson Davis and of his government’s inefficiencies, red-tape, and favoritism. The book concludes with the war's end and a tribute to the character of the newly freed slaves.

George Cary Eggleston A Rebel's Recollections. A Rebel's Recollections" was published in 1874. It has ever since enjoyed a degree of public favor that is perhaps beyond its merits. The scholars have said to me and to my publishers that during its thirty years of life the book has become a part of that body of literature to which historians must look as the sources of history. They have urged that the introductory chapter, now for the first time included in the volume, is an essential part of that material of history.

I enjoyed this book very much. If you have a real interest in southern endurance during this time of our history, I think you'll find it eye-opening.
It was a dreadful time of history.

Although not uncommon among personal memoirs of the War Between the States, the author, onetime member of JEB Stuart's staff because of his clerical abilities, manages to paint an even more that usual optimistic picture of the Confederacy contrary to most contemporary accounts, letters, and diaries including:

The women never waivered in their support of the soldiers or the cause. Ignoring thousands of documented letters from wives begging their husbands to desert.

Virtually all males immediately joined the army, then why the need for a military draft?

There was very little lack of necessities in the confederacy.

Slaves were happy in their circumstances because of their benevolent owners, a
not uncommon theme in many southern memoirs.

Eggelston is especially vitriolic in his criticism of President Jefferson Davis which may explain why A Rebel's Recollections, was not on the list of approved books by the United Confederate Veterans not the Daughters of the Confederacy because by the time of it first publishing Davis had achieved martyrdom in the eyes of most southerners.
