At the dawn of the Civil War, Somerset Place was a wealthy planter's estate and home to more than 300 enslaved men, women, and children. As a result of the war, it was transformed into a shadowy remain that proved home to no one. The stories surrounding that transformation provide a microscopic view of social, emotional, economic, and legal impacts of the war on individual Southerners of different races and genders.
