LeRoy Gresham was born in 1847 to an affluent and prominent slave holding family in Macon, Georgia. As a young child he suffered a horrific leg and back injury that left him an invalid. Educated, inquisitive, perceptive, and exceptionally witty, the 12-year-old began keeping a journal in 1860ójust before secession and Civil War tore the country and his world apart. He continued to write even as his health deteriorated and died in 1865. Prominent Macon figures are woven in and out of the diary.  440 pages.
