Summary
Diary, July-September 1864 (118 p.), of William King of Cobb County, Ga., who remained alone on his plantation to protect his property and slaves from depredations by federal forces, and papers, 1879, concerning King's claim against the U.S. government for damages by federal troops, based on his claim that he was a unionist during the war. Diary entries record difficulties and hardships affecting all classes, his generally good treatment by federal soldiers and discussions of slavery with them, the cancellation of religious services by federal army order after Confederate ministers refused to pray for the U.S. president, the collapse of Confederate forces around Atlanta, and the return of federal troops from Stoneman's Raid, having suffered greatly
