Diarist. At the age of nineteen, this "unusually pretty young women with dark eyes and dark hair" began a journal that archived the sights, events and tragedies of her time. The instance this lass began recording was June 1863, and the American Civil War had been raging for two long years. Her unwavering loyalties were totally with the Confederacy, and she often put to paper her torment over the deaths of her two brothers, Frank and "Tonio". The brothers had died in Confederate service, and it was a heartbreak that Pauline never overcame. Her journal entries spanned from 1863 to 1888, and they contain joy, sorrow and faith. It is indeed a record of an extraordinary strong-minded lady during a most extraordinary time.

The modern reader can share the experiences of Ms. Pauline by perusing "A Confederate Lady Comes of Age – The Journal of Pauline DeCaradeuc Heyward, 1863-1888" edited by Mary D. Robertson.
