"Peter is a composite fashioned out of my own family background. Not one man in my mother's family lived after the war to carry on, but your answer is on page 242, sixth paragraph, and Chardon gives it to you. Peter was to me not of the Confederacy, but a tragic symbol of all sensitive youth caught in war."
