Judith McGuire was the wife of Rev. John P. McGuire, an Episcopal minister and principal of the Episcopal High School near Alexandria, Virginia. Trapped behind enemy lines after the Yankee invasion of  Northern Virginia, her family was separated and subjected to great suffering at the hands of  “the locust of Egypt”, as she called the invaders. She became a Southern Refugee who decided to maintain a diary of her wanderings during the war years for the purpose of informing a generation too young to remember the truth of the war.
