When This Evil War is Over collects the Civil War correspondence exchanged between members of the James Carrington Francis family of Jacksonville, Calhoun County, Alabama. Six of the seven Francis brothers served in the Confederate army, as did their uncle, four servants, and other kinsmen. All twelve members of the immediate family of Dr. James Carrington Francis and Amy Ingram Francis - as well as several members of their extended family - are represented in this volume. While the letters refer to the war and the brothers' military service, they also shed light on this family's struggle to survive the profound cultural, economic, and political upheaval that ensued.
