Near the end of her classic wartime account, Susie King Taylor writes, "there are many people who do not know what some of the colored women did during the war." For her own part, Taylor spent four years--without pay or formal training--nursing sick and wounded members of a black regiment of Union soldiers. In addition, she worked as a camp cook, laundress, and teacher. Written from a perspective unique in the literature of the Civil War, Reminiscences of My Life in Camp not only chronicles daily life on the battlefront but also records interactions between blacks and whites, men and women, and Northerners and Southerners during and after the war.Taylor tells of being born into slavery and of learning, in secret, to read and write. She describes maturing under her wartime responsibilities and traveling with the troops in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. After the war, Taylor dedicated herself to improving the lives of black Southerners and black Union Army veterans. The final chapters of Reminiscences are filled with depictions of the racism to which these efforts often exposed her. This volume reproduces the text of the original 1902 edition. Catherine Clinton's new introduction provides historical context for the events that form the backdrop of Taylor's memoir, as well as for the problems of race and gender it illuminates.… (mere)

Good history. From a black woman's perspective of the civil war. Interesting reading. ( )
  hredwards | Nov 19, 2011 |
This is a wonderful memoir written by a Black woman from Savannah, Georgia, who served with the Black regiment that was formed in South Carolina. These Black troops did much to secure the Barrier Islands off the coast of Georgia and South Carolina and gained territory that made Sherman’s march to the sea possible. Her perspective on this aspect of the war is a valuable addition to the literature available from that era. I especially enjoyed this memoir because it takes place in the area of the South in which I lived for nearly 25 years. Its most important aspect, however, is that we see a perspective of the Civil War from the viewpoint of a Black person who had high stakes in the outcome of the conflict. Her observations are perceptive and show an understanding of what is at stake. Extensive additional notes on the information she gives helps to make this account valuable in understanding much about what these Black regiments accomplished and the sacrifices they made. Highly recommended! 4 stars I just wish she had written more! ( )

A very readable and interesting story with a totally different perspective of the civil War as told by a black woman who came from Savannah and spent most of that was working in a camp of black soldiers. Soldiers who quite often died before getting paid and those who did survive may not have received much of that pay anyway. But her life was not harsh, though there was danger.

She hoped that once the war was over, there would be equality for all. She did find it but had to go North to have it. She found that crossing the rive in Cincinnati on a train in the late 1800s meant she had to move to a different car, one for "colored people." In 1902, she wondered if the "war had been in vain."

Today things have improved greatly but we have a ways to go. Hopefully, her dream will be completely fulfilled soon. ( )
