No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. DJ is VG. . . . . . . .. . . . . . In this book Wheeler describes the tumultuous events that preceded and led up to the outbreak of the war, beginning before Lincoln's election. He follows the conflict of words among abolitionists, those who would preserve the Union at all costs, and the defenders of slavery and states' rights; the confused jockeying of the political parties in the months before the 1860 election to find the most suitable candidates and platforms for them to run on; and, of course, the. Efforts of the new president, Abraham Lincoln, to maneuver through the shoals of turmoil. When all efforts to avoid a final break fail, the narrative reaches a climax with the Confederate assault on Fort Sumter, followed by the first major battle at Bull Run, a blood-letting that shattered the hopes and beliefs of those on both sides who had somehow expected a quick and easy war.

'Will Greene's latest work is absolutely spectacular. He addresses a chapter of the Eastern Theater which has been glossed over for years. Too many people jump from the Crater to Appomattox without taking into account the long and difficult maneuver campaigning which occurred during the intervening 9 months. Greene addresses this in exceptional fashion with in- depth discussion of each of the events and how it impacted on the Army of the Potomac's Sixth Corps' preparations for the culmionating assult on April 2, 1865. It is exceptionally well researched and written and a delight to read. The notations are very illuminating and provide the reader an explanation of where the 1865 battlefield fits on the road networks of 2000. A great read and a must have.' -- John E. Buchanan

'The year prior to the battle of Gettysburg was the high-water mark for the Confederacy; single-minded, its superior officers were unified under the command of General Robert E. Lee. [This book] focuses on the strategic collaboration between Lee and Thomas Stonewall Jackson in the battles leading up to July 1863: Second Bull Run (or Manassas), Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. The roots of a tradition of undying valor and constancy were founded here, and they have been a vibrant heritage for subsequent generations. This story, based on the best-selling novel by Jeff Shaara (Gods and Generals), also involves Union officers Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and Winfield Scott Hancock, one a professor of religion from Bowdoin College, and the other a graduate of West Point. The dramatic text and pictures bring to life this crucial time as the Confederacy dominated the battlefields with their skillful speed and flexibility'--Publisher's description.

Peace ----------- APPENDIX A: Troop Strength -- APPENDIX B: The Fatal Delay -- APPENDIX C: The Removal of Anderson, Johnson, and Pickett -- * Order of Battle -- * Notes -- * Bibliography -- * Sources and Acknowledgments -- * Index. . . . . . . . . . . . Few events in Civil War history have generated such deliberate mythmaking as the retreat that ended at Appomattox. William Marvel offers the first history of the Appomattox campaign written primarily from contemporary source material, with a skeptical eye toward memoirs published well after the events they purport to describe. Marvel shows that during the final week of the war in Virginia, Lee's troops were more numerous yet far less faithful to their cause than has been suggested. He also proves accounts of the congenial intermingling of the armies at Appomattox to be shamelessly overblown and the renowned exchange of salutes to be apocryphal.

The struggle for control of the eastern waters of North Carolina duringthe War Between the States was a bitter, painful, and sometimeshumiliating one for the Confederate navy. No better example exists ofthe classic adage, Too little, too late. Burdened by the lack ofadequate warships, construction facilities and even ammunition, nevertheless the South's naval arm fought bravely and recklessly tostem the tide of the Federal invasion of North Carolina from the sea.Storm Over North Carolina is the account of the Southern navy'sstruggle in North Carolina waters. It is a saga of crushing defeatsinterspersed with moments of brilliant victories. It is also the story ofdogged determination and incredible perseverance in the face ofoverwhelming odds. . . . . . . . . . . . . 'I don't often write book reviews, and never on books I have not finished yet, but Storm Over Carolina is an exception. Thomas Campbell has taken a little known area of the civil war, and blends his wonderful ability to really bring the battles to life, with eyewitness accounts of the events that took place during the struggle for control of Eastern North Carolina. I have not read any of his other books, but if they are all like this one, I will have to make some more room on my bookshelf.' -- G Watson

While the foremost concern for any regimental author is to tell a story, it is also important to put that regiment into a proper context and offer something more to the reader than just the regiment 'fought here' or 'charged there.' Noted historian of Wisconsin regiments, William J. K. Beaudot has succeeded admirably at presenting a well-balanced and highly readable regimental history in The 24th Wisconsin Infantry in the Civil War: The Biography of a Regiment. The 24th Wisconsin, often times referred to as 'The Milwaukee Regiment,' has never before had its story told. Until now many only know the regiment because one of its members was Arthur McArthur - father of the famed commander of operations in the Pacific during World War II. Drawing on an array of sources, which includes a sizeable body of published primary and archival collections Beaudot presents a history that would most certainly please the veterans of that regiment. The book is not only valuable to individuals with an interest in Wisconsin regiments, but is highly valuable to scholars and arm chair historians alike who seek to learn more about the oft-forgotten western theater and the life of the common soldier.' -- Jonathan A.
