In Rebel Richmond, Stephen V. Ash vividly evokes life in Richmond as war consumed the Confederate capital. He guides readers from the city's alleys, homes, and shops to its churches, factories, and halls of power, uncovering the intimate daily drama of a city transformed and ultimately destroyed by war. Drawing on the stories and experiences of civilians and soldiers, slaves and masters, refugees and prisoners, merchants and laborers, preachers and prostitutes, the sick and the wounded, Ash delivers a captivating new narrative of the Civil War's impact on a city and its people.

"Remarkably rich, humane, and compelling. Ash reveals aspects of life in the Confederate capital we have never seen before and helps us understand that the Civil War was much more than the familiar battles--it was a cataclysmic event that consumed the entire society, especially in the South."--Edward L. Ayers, author of The Thin Light of Freedom: The Civil War and Emancipation in the Heart of America
