Sarah Morgan Dawson (1842 - 1909)
Sarah Morgan Dawson wrote a diary during the American Civil War, from March 1862 to June 1865, as a young woman of 20 living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Sarah's father, though he disapproved of secession, declared for the South when Louisiana left the Union. Her eldest brother, who became the family patriarch when his father died in 1861, was for the Union, though he refused to take up arms against his fellow Southerners. Sarah was devoted to the Confederacy, and watched with sorrow and indignation its demise.
