Of all the defense forces raised in Confederate Georgia, the Georgia State Line-two regiments of conscription-age soldiers-stands alone as an organization unique in origin and service. This book, the only extensive treatment of a Georgia state military organization during the Civil War, traces the history of the State Line regiments as they participated in every Confederate campaign waged in Georgia during their existence. In addition Bragg examines this "army" as a function of the political philosophy of Govern Joseph E. Brown and details its part in his conflicts with Confederate authorities over such issues as state sovereignty, conscription, and local defense.
