The Grand Army of the Republic was the granddaddy of all veteran organizations, but unlike later veteran organizations, was not opened to veterans of succeeding wars. The author's great grandfather had been active in the G.A.R., and it was his stories, as passed down through his son, that ignited Richard Partington's life-long interest in the Civil War. The Grand Army of the Republic was an important part of my boyhood and youth. It is my memory of the G.A.R. that I want to share with you. These memories have been reinforced by personal notes as well as old newspaper articles. This 3-part work... View more info

The First Maryland Infantry was formed from Marylanders who chose to cast their lot with the Confederacy against a Union government that had invaded their state and established martial law, forcing those who disagreed with the invasion of the South to join the Confederates or to submit to what they considered as tyranny. Organized at Harpers Ferry, they fought in the first battle of the war at Bull Run, and distinguished themselves for their valor. The Marylanders fought in the Shenandoah Valley under Jackson, bringing new honors to their fame. During the Seven Day Campaign they made an outsta... View more info

From Shiloh in April 1862 to the decisive victory at Nashville in December 1864, few Union regiments in the Civil War's western theater forged better service records than the 41st Ohio. Often utilized in battle as shock troops, the fighting men of the 41st were imbued with discipline and spirit emanating from unusually high standards expected of the regiment's officers. Its first colonel, William B. Hazen, was a West Pointer who uncompromisingly used his pre-war experience as a Texas Indian fighter to transform raw recruits into competent, reliable soldiers. Along with strict adherence... View more info

This book is about the men from the rural townships of Centerville, Hume and Granger (Allegany County, New York) who volunteered or were drafted to fight in The War Between the States.

It provides insight into the world of these men just prior to the war, with an analysis of the 1860 Federal Census, and looks again at that world at the end of the war with an analysis of the 1865 New York State Census. Mostly, this book offers readers a look at the lives of... View more info

For years preceding the Civil War, the mountain people of western North Carolina lived under very different social and economic conditions than their plantation farming counterparts in other parts of the state. The mountain people did not generally own slaves, making them reluctant to contribute soldiers when North Carolina seceded from the Union. Many of these pro-Union Carolinians took up arms as Federal troops and engaged in guerrilla raids to disrupt Confederate operations within their home state. The Third Mounted Infantry was one such unit, organized under Col. George Washington Kirk in ... View more info

His intent was to inform people who had grown up since the war of what it was like to be involved in the greatest struggle that our nation had ever known. He hoped to show the importance of the ordinary soldier who fought in the trenches and dealt most directly with the extreme hardships of war. His account also relates instances of camp life and battles that he had been a part of, together with the personalities involved. The dates, anecdo... View more info
