Still autobiographical, but not dealing entirely with slavery is Susie Baker King Taylor's highly accessible memoir, Reminiscences of My Life in Camp with the 33rd United States Colored Troops Late 1st S.C. Volunteers, published by herself in 1902. The only Civil War memoir written by a woman who served in the Union camps, it provides a view of the Civil War not otherwise available.
