Listen here what the newspaper says: “It is impossible to tell when we will get a paper in these times of uncertain transportation and uncertain everything else”
Person B: (Female voice)
Forget the paper. Can’t get nothin’ now…no needles, fine cloth or thread. Yanks blowin’ up the train tracks, burning warehouses. I read that the orphan asylum is begging for food.
If I bag a deer, I don’t have no salt to cure the meat. Got no sugar. Can’t remember what coffee tastes like. If those Yanks don’t shoot us, they’ll starve us.
The folks are hurtin’ cause of the war. We gets less from what we raise ourselves. Now, they hires us out or we get sent to labor on the breastworks in Richmond.
The Confederate government passed laws allowing the seizure of food and slaves from plantations for use by its army, creating greater shortages on the home front. Mrs. Burroughs, who had six sons in the army, was exempt.
