Days of Destruction: Augustine Thomas Smythe and the Civil War Siege of Charleston

Through a collection of letters written by Augustine Thomas Smythe, a well-educated young man from a prominent Charleston family, we get a glimpse of the long, destructive assault on the Holy City during the Civil War. From behind a telescope in the midst of the War, he shares an almost post-apocalyptic perspective of the oftentimes quiet, frequently lawless street where he lived before and during the siege of Charleston.
