In 1861, with very few resources, the Confederacy attempted to arm itself. Several armories and factories were created in the South to help meet these needs. Colonel Burton's Spiller & Burr Revolver is based exclusively on primary sources, and provides a detailed history about one of those manufacturing firms during the Civil War. The book describes how the factory's history applies to Southern industrialism in the mid-nineteenth century. Revolving around the creation, operation, and demise of a pistol factory, this book illustrates the struggles of the factory and thus of the Confederacy during the Civil War.

At age seventeen Belle Boyd shot and killed a Union soldier; at age nineteen she was in a Union prison, a Confederate spy who got caught. A spunky West Virginia girl full of charm and with a zest for adventure, Belle worked among the highest-ranking officers and the lowliest foot soldiers of the Civil War with an indomitable spirit that defied Union authority. Like many historical figures, in retrospect Belle Boyd may appear larger than life, but in this delightful biography her life is portrayed within its actual dimensions.

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.

This Cruel War : The Civil War Letters of Grant and Malinda Taylor
By author: Blomquist, Taylor
Product Code: H487
ISBN: 9780865546547
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $32.95
In 1862, Private Grant Taylor of the 40th Alabama Infantry regiment began writing home to his wife Malinda. Thus started an almost three year correspondence of some 160 letters that chronicle the impact of the American Civil War on one rural Alabama family. For the Taylors and their kin, the war brought precious little glory or sentimental notions of causes won or lost. Their rough prose provides more evidence of the downside of the Civil War experience that is historically significant and emotionally touching.

Price: $35.00
In his introduction to the classic Civil War book Company Aytch, historian Bell I. Wiley makes a pointed observation about soldiers' memoirs, "Most of these have only limited value either as history or literature, but a few stand out as exceptions to the general rule.” Fortunately, as readers learn from the pen of Pvt. Isaac Gordon Bradwell, his stirring narrative provides one such exception. The unforgettable events witnessed by an impressionable young Georgian originally found their way into print, piecemeal fashion, courtesy of the Confederate Veteran magazine. Long buried in the pages of this magazine's volumes, Bradwell's engaging and readable story is finally told in its entirety.
