It may take an effort to realign to Cary Eggleston's wavelength but that's a very good place to be.
This article will explore three Confederate memoirs written during and after the final days of Reconstruction--George Cary Eggleston
's A Rebel's Recollections (1874), Richard Taylor's Destruction and Reconstruction: Personal Experiences of the Last War(1879), and Sam Watkins's memoir Company Aytch: Or, A Side Show of the Big Show (1881-82)--in order to show how Reconstruction-era politics shaped the rhetorical and narrative strategies of Eggleston and Taylor and how Watkins's memoir is a populist response to officers' memoirs like those of Eggleston and Taylor.
