A Pictorial History of the Confederacy
About the Book
The fascination with the Confederacy and its heroes seems to grow ever stronger. Arranged chronologically and geographically, this book features descriptions of more than forty battles of the War Between the States, along with battle maps that show where the antagonists were located. The first section discusses and provides images from 1860 to Fort Sumter. The author then discusses battles that occurred in 1861 in northern Virginia and in the South and West, providing several photographs. The sections for the years 1862 to 1865 are arranged similarly and each also includes background about the Southern battle flags from various groups such as the Texas Rangers (8th Texas Cavalry) and the Confederate Navy.
The book features a wide selection of rarely seen photographs of such Confederate heroes as Robert E. Lee, “Stonewall” Jackson, Jubal Early, Nathan Bedford Forest, A.P. Hill and Jeb Stuart, along with details of their military careers and personal lives that are little known to the average reader.
