 Sallie Independence Foster was 12 years old when the Civil War began. Her journal, begun in June 1861, and carefully preserved by her family, paints a picture of a child’s innocent world that is gradually darkened by the reality of war. The journal continues through the war and for another 22 years, as Sallie grows to be a young woman, marries, and begins a family of her own.

Through Sallie's writings, historical photographs, letters, and music of the time, storyteller Dolores Hydock and music historian Bobby Horton share this uniquely personal glimpse at a radically changing world.

Story adapted and told by Dolores Hydock; music by Bobby Horton.
