In Their Own Words

June 25, 1865

No More Gray Uniforms

In her journal, Eliza Frances Andrews continued to express her depression over the South’s loss of the Civil War:

“June 25, Sunday. I feel like Garnett [her brother] looks - in a chronic state of ennui. Poor fellow, he is as unhappy as he can be over the wreck of our cause and the ruin of his career. The latest act of tyranny is that handbills have been posted all over town forbidding the wearing of Confederate uniforms. We have seen the last of the beloved old gray, I fear. I can better endure the gloomy weather because it gives us gray skies instead of blue.”
