Typescript..Diary, 1859-1864, of Sally Lyons Taliaferro (1828-1899) of Gloucester County, Virginia, detailing her life at "Dunham Massie", her home in Gloucester County, including family and social life, gardening, housekeeping and the weather.

It provides a detailed account of how the Civil War affected Gloucester County, primarily occupation by the Union army and slaves leaving their masters for the Union lines. Taliaferro also records several war time trips to her father's home, "Laburnum" in Richmond, Virginia. Diary also includes two anecdotes concerning Taliaferro's silver and her confrontation with the Union raiding Party.
