This chapter follows Mary Edwards Bryan’s flight from war-torn Louisiana in spring 1863 and her journey to Atlanta to seek employment and greater security. The authors examine wartime conditions for women in Atlanta and discuss the constraints imposed upon newspapers and journals as a result of the destruction of paper mills. During this time of strain, Mary’s sought direction and employment from Catherine Webb Barber of Southern Literary Companion, Simeon A. Atkinson of Southern Field and Fireside, and Josiah S. Peterson of Atlanta Daily Gazette. Wartime privations made employment tenuous, however, and Mary ultimately had to return to Louisiana and her husband.
