Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0884901815, Hardcover)In the tumultuous days after the close of the Civil War, a young teacher of Pennsylvania Mennonite background made his way to the city of Lynchburg to become an instructor in the Freedmen's Bureau schools. At the close of his long day's teaching, Jacob Eschbach Yoder often stole a few minutes to record his experiences in a journal. The diaries, published here for the first time, provide a remarkable glimpse of daily life in the postwar South and the personal musings of a young man coming of age in a time of great social change. His eyewitness account of the struggle for freedom is enhanced with 20 black-and-white illustrations.
