An account of East Tennesseans fighting to defend Confederate Vicksburg in late 1862 through July 1863.

Florida's Civil War: Terrible Sacrifices
By author: Tracy J. Revels
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H923
ISBN: 9780881465891
Availability: In stock
Price: $29.00
Though far from the major theaters of battle, Floridians experienced every facet of the Civil War. While most Florida soldiers fought for the Confederacy, many Floridians, including former slaves, enlisted with the Union. Families were divided and partisanship tore communities apart. Some Floridians produced salt, beef, and supplies for the Confederacy; others profited during Union occupations. The one notable battle fought in Florida, the Battle of Olustee, was disproportionately bloody. FLORIDA'S CIVIL WAR is a true tale of survival, ingenuity, and opportunism.

Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Invisible Hero: Patrick R. Cleburne presents a level of detail that is unsurpassed in the study of this significant figure, focusing on the military and political aspects of his service while avoiding the social or personal sidelights found in a general biography. Battles and movements are explained in an objective light, exposing his triumphs as well as his failures, his assets as well as his shortcomings. The result has been an analysis of a man unappreciated by his own government, yet widely regarded as the finest infantry officer in the Western Theatre.

Mississippi's Civil War : A Narrative History

ISBN: 9780881465129
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
This book begins with an introductory overview of the socio-political climate of the state of Mississippi during the 1850s and ends with a treatment of its post-war environment. In between, the work covers the pivotal events, issues, and personalities of the period. Wynne emphasizes the experiences of Mississippians--male and female, black and white--as they struggled to deal with the crisis. The political events leading to secession, Mississippians' initial enthusiasm for war, voices of dissent, the disbursement of troops in and out of the state, the home front, freedom for the slave community, waning enthusiasm (both in the military and on the home front) as the war dragged on, defeat, and the ultimate struggle to turn defeat into a moral victory through Lost Cause mythology are also discussed.

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.

The Battle of Peach Tree Creek: Hood's First Sortie, 20 July 1864
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H858
ISBN: 9780881463965
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
The Battle of Peach Tree Creek marked the beginning of the end for the Confederacy, for it turned the page from the patient defense displayed by General Joseph E. Johnston to the bold offense called upon by his replacement, General John Bell Hood. Until this point in the campaign, the Confederates had fought primarily in the defensive from behind earthworks, forcing Federal commander William T. Sherman to either assault fortified lines, or go around them in flanking moves. At Peach Tree Creek, the roles would be reversed for the first time, as Southerners charged Yankee lines.

The Battle of Resaca: Atlanta Campaign, 1864
By author: Philip Secrist
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P413
ISBN: 9780881462074
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
The battle of Resaca in May 1864 represents a series of firsts: the first major battle of the Atlanta Campaign, the first occasion in Georgia in 1864 of Confederate and Federal armies in their entirety facing one another across a field of battle, and the first major encounter between Joseph E. Johnston and William T. Sherman as army field commanders. The two-day battle of Resaca proved to be an experience for Sherman that would cause him to alter the patterns of strategy and tactics in the campaign that followed. Eventually, Yankees would capture Atlanta in September, and the timing of Atlanta’s fall would have a profound political impact on the reelection of an American president and subsequently, the outcome of the war.

Product Code: H902
ISBN: 9780881465273
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00

To the Gates of Atlanta covers the period from the Confederate victory at Kennesaw Mountain, 27 June 1864, leading up to the Battle of Peach Tree Creek, 20 July 1864, and the first of four major battles for Atlanta that culminated in the Battle of Jonesboro, 31 August and 1 September 1864.

To the Gates of Atlanta also gives the important, but previously untold stories of the actions and engagements that befell the sleepy hamlet of Buckhead and the surrounding woods that today shelter many parts of Atlanta’s vast community. 

From Smyrna to Ruff’s Mill, Roswell to Vinings, Nancy Creek to Peach Tree Creek, and Moore’s Mill to Howell’s Mill, To the Gates of Atlanta tells the story of each as part of the larger story which led to the fall of The Gate City of the South.

The name of Union general William T. Sherman is still reviled in Atlanta, 150 years after his soldiers devastated this important Georgia city. Thirty-seven days of artillery bombardment, July-August 1864, wrecked countless downtown buildings and killed perhaps a score of civilians. Longtime Atlantan Stephen Davis describes Sherman’s shelling in detail unmatched in the Civil War literature.
