Join us at the Lakeport Plantation for a book signing with historian and Mississippi Delta native, Woody Woods. Woods’ second edition of A Delta Diary brings Amanda Worthington’s Civil War Diary back into print with new material on the Worthtington family in the post Civil War era.
Worthington grew up at Wayside, Mississippi on the Willoughby Plantation, owned by her parents, Samuel and Amanda Worthington. Just sixteen years old when the Civil War began, her diary records daily events and gives the reader a glimpse into Antebellum life in the Delta. Her world forever changes, as the war encroaches upon her and their Delta Plantation.
