A South Carolina Upcountry Saga: The Civil War Letters of Barham Bobo Foster and His Family, 1860-1863
University of South Carolina Press
A South Carolina Upcountry Saga is a compilation of letters between members of the Foster family during the dramatic early years of the Civil War. The editor, a descendant of Barham Bobo Foster painstakingly located and transcribed the family letters. The letters begin with a terse note from B. B. Foster to a son, dated 20 December 1860, announcing “that South Carolina is out of the Union without a dissenting voice (p. 11) and end in 1863 except for a much later 1894 letter from Eunice Foster Kennedy to her father, B. B. Foster (p.328 ff).
