The Fremantle Diary
Col. James Fremantle
Edited and Introduced by Walter Lord
“By far the most interesting and well written travel account of life in the Confederacy.“
– The New York Times
This is a fascinating primary document of the Civil War, the diary of English Col. James Fremantle, who kept this engaging account of his tour of the Confederacy in 1863. He met a who’s-who of the South: Lee, Davis, Stuart, Johnston, Longstreet, and many others, his descriptions culminating at Gettysburg,
a battle which Fremantle viewed practically at Lee’s elbow. Historian Walter Lord provides an introduction and extensive notes for the modern reader
Walter Lord was the author of Incredible Victory, A Night to Remember, and many other books. He died in 2002.
