The Virginia Historical Society hold her "Recollections of Life during the War Between the States" Her recollections chronicle her family's experiences during the Civil War. While her father, William F. Crocker (18141869), served as chaplain in the 14th Virginia Infantry Regiment and later as chief of the Army Intelligence Office in Richmond, Fannie, along with her mother and brothers, moved away from the war on the Peninsula as refugees to Lynchburg. Later they moved to Richmond to be with her father. Fannie recalls her family's efforts to survive amidst the shortages brought on by the war. Her description of life in Richmond includes mention of high ranking Confederate military officers and political officials who inhabited the city throughout the war.
