Civil War Through the Eyes of LT Col John Withers and His Wife, Anita Dwyer Withers Diamond Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Eyewitness accounts of the American Civil War, told through the viewpoints of a Confederate husband and wife. Providing a unique perspective on the American Civil War, this book weaves together the diaries of Lt. Col. John Withers, an Assistant Adjutant General for Jefferson Davis, and his wife, Anita Dwyer Withers. Reports of battles fought meld with domestic life in these journals, creating a multi-dimensional picture of the Withers' lives together during the "War Between the States." Jointly, their diaries encompass the entire length of the Civil War; from May 1860 - September 1865. A West Point graduate, John Withers served as an officer in the U.S. Army. Anita Dwyer Withers was the daughter of a distinguished citizen of San Antonio, Texas. In September 1860, Withers was ordered to Washington, D.C., and assigned duty as an Assistant in the Adjutant-General's office. As Anita was very close to her family in Texas, she was deeply troubled by the move. She wrote, "I regret it mightily." In Washington, John served under General Samuel Cooper's command until March, 1861, when he resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and came south to join the Confederate cause. Because of the nature of his job in the Confederate capitol of Richmond, Lt. Col. Withers and his wife were closely acquainted with many of the notable figures of Civil War history, including Jefferson Davis, his wife, Varina Davis, and the Secretary of War. John and Anita recorded Civil War events as they happened, including the Seven Days Battles. Each also wrote of the more personal aspects of their lives, such as Anita's near fatal illness and the agony of their young son's death. Lt. Col. John Withers and Anita were ordinary people living in extraordinary times. Their story is timeless, and well worth being remembered.

In 1864, General Ulysses S. Grant decided to strangle the life out of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia by surrounding the city of Petersburg and cutting off General Robert E. Lee's supply lines. The ensuing siege would carry on for nearly ten months, involve 160,000 soldiers, and see a number of pitched battles including the Battle of the Crater, Reams Station, Hatcher's Run, and White Oak Road. After nearly ten months, Grant launched an attack that sent the Confederate army scrambling back to Appomattox Court House where it would soon surrender. Written by an expert on the American Civil War, this book examines the last clash between the armies of U.S. Grant and Robert E. Lee.

The second volume in a collection of accounts of Mosby and his Confederate Raiders In this second volume of personal narratives by two members of Mosby's command, readers will find the personal experiences of Johnny Munson, a teenager from Richmond who realised his ambitions for high adventure riding with Mosby. John Alexander, whose book is also included here, set out to join his friends in the 'Black Horse' troop of the 4th Virginia Cavalry, but found the appeal of a 'partisan ranger' life irresistible. The American Civil War brought to the fore a number of outstanding military figures and, given its culture and chivalric spirit, it is perhaps fair to say that the South provided more that its share of extraordinary soldiers. There is something alluring about the daredevil raider, who appears from nowhere behind enemy lines and wreaks havoc, and then disappears before he can be brought to account. Such men were became legends, and foremost among them in the Confederate Army was the 'Gray Ghost,' Virginian cavalryman John Singleton Mosby. Like his predecessor, Robert Rogers of the Rangers, he possessed courage, intellect, daring and martial fortitude ready-made for the perilous form of war he chose to fight. Fortunately, several of Mosby's men left fine first hand accounts of their time serving under this famous commander, and Leonaur is republishing all of them-in value for money omnibus editions-to provide American Civil War enthusiasts with a comprehensive library of the subject. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Story of My Campaign - 2852494405

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.

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.

Excerpt: Edward Douglass White, Jr. (November 3, 1845 - May 19, 1921), American politician and jurist, was a United States senator, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court and the ninth Chief Justice of the United States. He was best known for formulating the Rule of Reason standard of antitrust law. He also sided with the Supreme Court majority in the 1896 decision of Plessy v. Ferguson, which upheld the legality of segregation in the United States, though he did write for a unanimous court in Guinn v. United States (1915), which struck down many Southern states' grandfather clauses that disenfranchised blacks. White was born on his parents' plantation near the town of Thibodeauxville (now Thibodaux) in Lafourche Parish in south Louisiana. He was the son of Edward Douglas White Sr., a former governor of Louisiana, and grandson of Dr. James White, a U.S. representative, physician, and judge. On his mother's side, he was the grandson of U.S. Marshal Tench Ringgold, and related to the Lee family of Virginia. The White family's large plantation cultivated sugar cane and refined it into a finished product. White's paternal ancestors were of Irish descent, and he was a devout Roman Catholic his entire life. He studied first at the Jesuit College in New Orleans, then at Mount St. Mary's College, near Emmitsburg, Maryland, and then attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. where he was a member of the Philodemic Society. He later studied law at the University of Louisiana, renamed Tulane University in 1884. White's studies at Georgetown were interrupted by the American Civil War. It has been suggested that he returned to Bayou Lafourche, where he supposedly enlisted as an infantryman in the Confederate States Army under General Richard Taylor and eventually attained the rank of lieutenant. This is questionable, as his widowed mother had remarried and was living with the rest of the family in New Orleans at the time. When he returned to Louisiana, it was probab

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.
