Thirty years old when she started writing in her diary in early 1863, Fannie Anderson Rhea Fain was a mother of five children in Blountville, Tennessee and a member of what the historian John N. Fain calls the 'cousin network of Scotch-Irish Presbyterians who dominated business and culture in East Tennessee from its settlement to the Civil War' and worshipped 'both God and learning in about equal parts'.
