Confederate Army 1861-65 Osprey Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Southern states which formed the Confederacy in 1861 fielded many units of volunteer troops wearing a remarkably wide variety of uniforms, many of which reflected foreign influences. In a spirit of independence, many states also issued their own uniform regulations on the outbreak of the war between the States, and these non-standard uniforms were often retained until well into the course of the war. This first of a series of six titles draws on archival and pictorial evidence to bring to life the troops of South Carolina and Mississippi, and is illustrated with early photographic portraits along with superb color artwork from Richard Hook.

Confederate Cavalryman Osprey Publishing

The Southerner of the mid-19th century had been bred to ride horses. Men rode horseback wherever they wanted to go. Added to this, the period Southerner had long been used to firearms, whether for hunting for pleasure or food or simply sport. Putting the two together promised that when the Southern states seceded, beginning in December 1860, the cavalry would be a major combat arm: in fact, Robert E. Lee and Albert Sidney Johnston both came from the 2nd US Cavalry just before the war. This title looks at how the men of the Confederate cavalry were recruited, trained, lived and fought. Both routine and campaign life are covered, as well as the weapons and equipment that served them in their combat roles. Key encounters such as the 1863 clash at Brandy Station are also covered.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Elias Cornelius Boudinot provides the first full account of a man who was intimately and prominently involved in the life of the Cherokee Nation in the second half of the nineteenth century and was highly influential in the opening of the former Indian Territory to white settlement and the eventual formation of the state of Oklahoma. Involved in nearly every aspect of social, economic, and political life in Indian Territory, he was ostracized by many Cherokees, some of whom also threatened his life. Born into the influential Ridge-Boudinot-Watie family, Boudinot was raised in the East after the assassination of his father, who helped found the first newspaper published by an Indian nation. He returned to the Cherokee Nation, affiliating with his uncle Stand Watie and serving in the Confederate Army and as a representative of the Cherokees in the Confederate Congress. He was involved with treaty negotiations after the war, helped open the railroads into the Indian Territory, and founded the city of Vinita in Oklahoma. He also became a political figure in Washington, DC, a newspaper editor and publisher, and a prominent orator. James W. Parins is a professor of English and the associate director of the Sequoyah Research Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. He is the author of John Rollin Ridge: His Life and Works (available in a Bison Books edition), coauthor of bibliographies of Indian writers and guides to Native publications, and editor of works by Indian writers, including Ke-ma-ha: The Omaha Stories of Francis La Flesche, also available in a Bison Books edition.

Story of My Campaign - 2857422470

Story of My Campaign Northern Illinois University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1861, Francis Moore appeared to be a perfectly ordinary, twenty-three year old man: a carriagemaker in the bustling Mississippi River town of Quincy, Illinois. And there he might well have lived out his life in unadventurous comfort. But then the Civil War burst out, and Moore, along with most of his friends, like young men North and South, rushed to enlist in the army. His cavalry regiment soon set off for what proved to be four years of warfare, plunging him into harrowing experiences of battle that would have been unimaginable back in his small hometown and that uprooted him, body and soul, for the remainder of his life. Enter "The Story of My Campaign," the remarkable Civil War memoir of Captain Francis T. Moore, which historian Thomas Bahde here offers in an original edition to contemporary readers for the first time. Moore began the war as a private in Company L of the Second Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, and was soon promoted to lieutenant and then captain of his company. He spent most of the war fighting guerillas in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana. He fought at the battle of Belmont, Kentucky, in 1861 and raided Mississippi with General Benjamin Grierson in 1864. He also battled Confederate leaders, such as Nathan Bedford Forrest and Leonidas Polk. His unflinching chronicle of small-scale and irregular warfare, combined with his intimate account of military life, make his memoir as absorbing as it is historically valuable. Moore was also an unusually articulate young man with strong opinions about the war, the preservation of the Union, the institution of slavery, African Americans, the people of the South, and the Confederacy: his wartime observations and his postwar reflections on these themes provide not only a captivating narrative, they also provide readers with an opportunity to examine how the conflict endured in the memory of its veterans and the nation they served. The enormous social upheaval and staggering loss of human life during the Civil War cannot be overstated: the estimated 2 percent of Americans-- or 620,000 people--who died in the conflict would be the equivalent of 6,000,000 people today. "The Story of My Campaign "offers an indelible account of this conflagration from the perspective of one of its survivors. It is evidence of a hard war fought--and the long hard life that followed.

Robert E.Lee - 2837895081

Robert E.Lee W W NORTON & CO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The life of Robert E. Lee is a story of triumph - triumph in clearing his family name, triumph in marrying properly, triumph over the mighty Mississippi in his work as an engineer, and triumph over all other military men to become the towering figure who commanded the Confederate army in the American Civil War. But late in life Lee wrote what may be his most revealing phrase. He confessed that he "was always wanting something." This from perhaps the South's greatest hero, the man whose demeanor and presence in war were sufficient to inspire thousands to march to near-certain death. In this probing and personal biography, Emory Thomas's thorough examination of Lee's life reveals more than the man did himself, allowing us to find meaning in Lee's successes and failures. From his struggles as a youth with his father's humiliation, to his frustrating marriage into a proper and prominent family, and his lively relationships with young female friends and relatives, Lee - the uncertain scion, skilled engineer, consummate warrior, and college president - was actually an enigmatic person of latent passions. He lived in limbo between the self-control to which he aspired and the freedom for which he longed.

Letters of Absolon Knox Robinson Publishing Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Three stories, two sides, one country. Southerner Absolon Wilkes wants only to marry and live a peaceful life in North Carolina but the Civil War denies him both. When he voices his objection to the cause of the Confederacy, he is labeled a traitor and a coward. As the accusations against him grow, the safety of his fiancee, Anne, is threatened and Absolon is forced to leave his home, vowing to come back to her after the war. He solicits a promise from his closest friend, Royal Pollard to protect her until his return. Burdened with duty, Royal valiantly stands between Anne and harm despite being branded a Union sympathizer and a coward for declining his commission. His pain runs still deeper as he struggles to suppress his love for Anne. With her husband called away to fight, the loss of their infant son is too great a burden for Victoria Corbel to endure alone. Disguising herself as a man, she enlists in the Confederate Army, taking a dangerous assignment as a courier. Alone in enemy territory, she rides from camp to camp following the battles, determined to find her husband and fight or die at his side. When the Corbel Plantation is left in the hands of a cruel overseer, one slave, Window Graham, escapes to join the Union forces and fight for his freedom. Befriended by Absolon Wilkes he learns the true meaning of war and of friendship. But, Window's heart is tested when he confronts his mortally wounded former owner at the bloody battle at Ringold Gap. Inspired by the letters of a Civil War foot soldier, these true stories are skillfully woven together in a thrilling, inspirational and heart-breaking tale of courage and sacrifice.
