Title The War Ended: The New Life Begins
Creator (LCNAF)
  • Cunningham, Minnie Fisher, 1882-1964
Description Hand-written manuscript that recounts the events of Minnie Fisher Cunningham's family during the years after the end of the Civil War. She writes of her father's plan to increase his land holdings to grow more cotton and to rebuild the family house with a larger kitchen. The manuscript also recalls her mother's inability to find a cook midway through the year after the previous cook died, because the staff were hired on annual contracts.
