On Rising Ground: The Life and Civil War Letters of John M. Douthit, Fifty-Second Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H997
ISBN: 9780881467666
Availability: In stock
Price: $27.00
When John M. Douthit of Appalachian Georgia enlisted as a private in Fannin County's Fifty-Second Volunteer Infantry Regiment on March 4, 1862 and marched with neighbors to train at Camp McDonald, he left behind a pregnant wife, an eighteen-month-old daughter, and a small farm. A precious cache of family letters traces him to eastern Tennessee, where he served south of Cumberland Gap; through the failed Confederate invasion of Kentucky; on the march to join Bragg's forces near Murfreesboro, Tennessee; and finally, to the defense of Vicksburg, where John and his fellow North Georgians arrived during the Battle of Chickasaw Bayou. The author, John's great-great granddaughter and a descendant of the daughter who was born while he was away and whom he never saw, includes family stories and her own mother's memories of John's wife Martha.

Our Good and Faithful Servant: James Moore Wayne and Georgia Unionism
By author: Joel McMahon
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H929
ISBN: 9780881466065
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
United States Supreme Court Justice James Moore Wayne is the most famous Georgian nobody knows. When his home state seceded from the Union in 1861, Wayne retained his seat on the US Supreme Court and remained loyal to the Union as the nation lunged headlong into war. He knew the insanity of secession, and warned of the folly of disunion, but his son, Col. Henry Wayne, resigned his commission in the US Army and cast his lot with the Confederacy. This book tells their story and examines the nature of Georgia’s strong and largely overlooked unionist sentiment in the decades before the Civil War.

Reconstruction in Georgia: Economic, Social, Political, 1865-1872
By author: C. Mildred Thompson   Introduction by: William Harris Bragg
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P538
ISBN: 9780881465945
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
Fair-minded and comprehensive, C. Mildred Thompson’s RECONSTRUCTION IN GEORGIA (1915) has long been considered among the best of the state studies to emerge from Columbia University’s Dunning School. This coterie of graduate students in Professor William A. Dunning’s famed Reconstruction seminar produced studies of Reconstruction in their native states. Widely admired and appreciatively reviewed in their time, they were increasingly pilloried by revisionist scholars after mid-century. This new edition reintroduces Thompson’s classic to new readers as the Reconstruction Sesquicentennial gets underway. It corrects the major flaw of the original by including a full index, and also offers a detailed biographical sketch of the author.

Through novels such as Gone with the Wind, the story of the fall and destruction of Atlanta has joined myths of other lost cities such as Atlantis, Troy, and Jericho. Sallie Clayton's memoirs show us the reality of Civil War Atlanta from Secession to the memorials to the fallen, many years after the war. Sallie was a member of one of Georgia's wealthiest and most prominent families. Her memoirs detail the losses her family suffered. Moreover, Sallie seems to have been in all the wrong places throughout the war. From her we have a first-hand account of war-torn Atlanta, plantation life during the war, the opening shots of the battle for Chattanooga, and of postwar riots in Augusta and Athens.

Summon Only the Brave!: Commanders, Soldiers, and Chaplains at Gettysburg
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H918
ISBN: 9780881465709
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Of the many books written about the Battle of Gettysburg, none has included selections from the collected memoirs of the 238 chaplains, North and South, who were present at the battle—until now. Because chaplains were considered noncombatants, most were largely ignored. This unique study has brought to light many of the observations of clergymen, Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish, who accompanied their regiments wherever they marched, camped, or fought. Some of the memoirs have never been published, others unnoticed for a century. Because this is the first book to approach the Battle of Gettysburg from this perspective, rosters of Union and Confederate chaplains reportedly present at the battle are also included.
