Henry L. Benning is justly included in Northern's Men of Mark in Georgia yet, little is known of this remarkable man. Why was a federal military installation named after him? Why did his former slaves openly adore and respect him? What did he do to deserve such admiration from such a diverse multitude of people? This story answers these questions and also explores political affairs, court cases and societal issues such as slavery and religion.

These men represented the lifeblood of Georgia and they were determined to defend her sovereignty. These proud men defended Virginia soil while their own homes were being ravished by Sherman's "March to the Sea." The mental anguish endured by the Georgian soldiers during the wint...

The 6th Maryland Regiment Maryland Infantry was part of the 6th Corps, the most famous Corps in the Union Army. Until now, little has been written about this regiment’s contribution, yet on the actual battlefields, there are markers designating their position and participation. To correct this oversight, the author spent three years gleaning information from official records, diaries, letters and newspaper articles. The research for this book also led to the creation of the 6th Regiment of Maryland Infantry Descendant’s Association whose members contributed valuable information. ... View more info

This is the autobiography of James Morris Morgan and his many adventures as a midshipman. Morgan was born in New Orleans, LA, in 1845 and his exciting exploits began shortly thereafter. “I imagine that I have met with some adventures out of the usual run of the average schoolboy’s experiences, and if I have written some of them down, it has been with the laudable desire of amusing other people rather than personal vanity or desire for notoriety.” The journey through Morgan’s life is also an eyewitness account of a volatile time in America’s history.

May 21, 1864—two weeks have elapsed since the Atlanta Campaign began. It has been an operation of surprise and maneuver, of exhaustion and hunger, and of ceaseless combat. Now, fifty miles closer to the crucial city of Atlanta, the two armies confront each other again in the Allatoona Mountains. General Joseph E. Johnston’s Confederate army has occupied a strong defensive line protected by the Etowah River. As he has done before, General W. T. Sherman avoids a head-on conflict and plunges his Union army into a Georgia “wilderness.” He hopes to flank the Confederates w... View more info

Although this new work does discuss the role of the Eleventh in the various battles of the Civil War, the emphasis is on the human element of the war: how the soldiers felt, acted, and lived. The narrative allows us to follow the lives of these men, many of whom nobly leapt at the chance to defend their country, only to later learn the cost when they saw death on the battlefield for the first time. As the story of the Eleventh unfolds, we see them progress from raw recruits in their first skirmish to hardened veterans, enduring both the physical and mental hardships of battle. The soldiers the... View more info

The "Rebellion" affected ordinary people all over the North and South, not just those in uniform, and Frank Griffith's plainspoken letters help shed light on their lives.
