Extremely rare, THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR is sure to become the centerpiece of your Civil War collection. THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR is an unparalleled visual and written record of the Confederate Forces in the War Between the States.No other book ever published has so completely and authoritatively captured the full scope of Confederate military activity during the Civil War. From cover to cover, it is loaded with firsthand battle accounts written by commanding officers and other participants; hundreds of rare photographs and illustrations; rare lists of Confederate officers and regiments; numerous biographical sketches of Confederate generals and other officers; full descriptions of Confederate flags, Confederate currency and treasury notes, and much, much more.
The sheer amount of information and illustration contained in this heavy, oversized volume is overwhelming. If you are familiar with my auctions, you know that I usually furnish a full summary of the photos and illustrations that appear in my books. But in the case of THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR, I have met my match.I truly wish I had the time to record the names of all the stoic faces and war-ravaged places pictured in these pages, but it would take me many hours to do justice to the countless scenes and portraits youll find in this book. Trust me, you will not be disappointed when you see them for yourself. This book was issued as a Southern response to the publication of several large Federal pictorial war histories in the 1890s, all of which were decidedly pro-Union in tone. The following excerpts from the Preface will give you a clearer picture of what youll find in THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR. The publication of Harpers Pictorial History of the Civil War, The Pictorial Battles of the Civil War, and Frank Leslies Soldier in the Civil War, the three greatest Federal pictorial war histories ever published in this country, rendered necessary a companion volume, giving the Confederate side of the great conflict. Hence we present this volume, entitled THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR, with a conviction that it will not only be appreciated by the future historian and student of history, but by the intelligent masses, and take a prominent place among the valued historical literature of the universe. The splendid achievements of the gallant sons of the South in the long and bitter struggle constitute a theme that will continue to evoke the admiration of mankind to the remotest ages Wherever the banner of the Confederacy floated, there followed a lion-hearted host of as gallant and intrepid spirits as ever joined the ranks of war and went forth to battle for what they believed to be right. Neither privation, disaster, sickness nor death appalled them, and where their standards pointed they followed, with a heroism unsurpassed.
So long as nations endure will the story of their exploits be told with admiration. The object of this work is to give a history of the foundation and formation of the Confederate states, and to narrate minutely and correctly the facts concerning the important battles on land and sea, from a Confederate standpoint; also to present a convenient and accurate summary of the official statistics of the war, which will be a welcome addition to the history. Battles and details of minor importance have been omitted. Organizations of the armies, abstracts of strength, casualties and regimental statistics are essential to the history of the war; they are of interest not only to the surviving veterans, but to all those interested in the great story.
These statistics are fully given. The task of collecting the illustrations, especially the photographs, tintypes, etc. Of Confederate statesmen and soldiers, has been an extremely difficult one, but we have met with gratifying success.
They have come to us from all portions of the globe, and to a generous people we are deeply indebted for many of the cherished mementos. These photographs and tintypes were made during the war, when photography had not reached its present advanced stage. Nearly all were dim and faded, but they have been reproduced without retouching or other alteration. We think we have done our duty in presenting them just as they came to us a lot of old portraits without alteration or embellishment.While I cannot show or describe to you everything in this incredible 120-year-old book, I can certainly give you a peek at its many wonders. Below, youll find a summary of some of the Contents. Most are chapter headings, with the names of the authors, when stated.
Youll notice that the vast majority of the chapters were personally written by Confederate commanders and other ranking officers.
