Historical Q re "white brandy" in Civil War era US? [moved from Wine board]

In a Civil War era (1871) recipe for brandied peaches, written by a Southerner but intended for a national audience, what do you all think "best white brandy" would have been? Rum? I assume that in context (the book, the author) it's unlikely to have been corn liquor and have no real idea what might have been the most common "brandy" in that area at that rime.

Anyone interested in checking out the whole book, by the way, can access it here: http://digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/c...
