Surgeons and Chaplains; 10. Battles and Leaders- The Surrender and Results. Each features articles that explain and defend the Southern Cause as well as advertisements.

Mildred Lewis "Miss Millie" Rutherford (July 16, 1851 – August 15, 1928) was a prominent educator and author from Athens, Georgia. She served the Lucy Cobb Institute, as its head and in other capacities, for over forty years, and oversaw the addition of the Seney-Stovall Chapel to the school. Heavily involved in many organizations, she became the historian general of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) from 1911-1916, and a speech given in November 1912 for the national assembly of the UDC was the first by a woman to be recorded in the Congressional Record. She was a prolific non-fiction writer. She held strong pro-Confederacy views and opposed women's suffrage.  Rutherford was an accomplished public speaker and always a champion of southern traditions. She was a woman of powerful personality, commanding presence, and fearlessly outspoken opinions; she was known widely for the speeches she delivered in hoop skirts. She addressed a great number of local organizations, including the YMCA, the Ladies Memorial Association (for which she served as president), and the Athens chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC). She became perhaps the best-known amateur historian in the early twentieth century for her extensive writings, speeches and her historical journal.  [sm]
