Grant Under Fire: An Exposé of Generalship & Character in the American Civil
A groundbreaking book challenges Ulysses S. Grant's reputation as a military genius and reliable chronicler of the Civil War. Grant has a sterling reputation as an officer and gentleman, despite suffering the biggest surprise of the war, committing the worst official act of anti-Semitism on U.S. soil, and coming closest of all Union commanders to losing Washington. Defenders even rank his generalship above Robert E. Lee's, but to do so, they must ignore his simplistic, pugnacious strategies that led to a war of attrition, as well as amateurish tactics of impetuous frontal assaults, all along the line against fortified positions. He relied on favoritism to decide military matters, trashing personal enemies, elevating friends, and arranging battle plans to fit his prejudices. Rigorously based on primary sources, it resolves such controversies as his drunken partying with the enemy on boats out of Cairo, Illinois, blaming Lew Wallace for a slow march to Shiloh, pretending that he had a plan to pass Vicksburg all along, taking credit for the charge up Missionary Ridge, and leaving wounded men to suffer between the lines at Cold Harbor. It overturns old tales by detailing Grant's corruption in Cairo, occupation of Paducah under orders, blunders in the Delta, and non-triumphal exit fro...

“Double Canister at Ten Yards”: The Federal Artillery and the Repulse of Pickett’s Charge, July 3,
Most accounts of Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg focus on General Robert E. Lee’s reasons for making the attack, its preparation, organization, and ultimate failure. In the gripping study “Double Canister at Ten Yards”: The Federal Artillery and the Repulse of Pickett’s Charge, July 3, 1863, artillery expert David Shultz focuses his examination on the Union long-arm, and explains how and why General Henry Hunt and his gunners were able to beat back the Confederate foot soldiers.Shultz, who has studied Gettysburg for decades and walked every yard of its hallowed ground, uses official reports, letters, diaries, and other accounts to meticulously explain how Hunt and his officers and men worked tirelessly on the night of July 2 and well into July 3 to organize a lethal package of orchestrated destruction to greet the expected assault. The war witnessed many large scale assaults and artillery bombardments, but no example of defensive gunnery was more destructive than the ring of direct frontal and full-flank enfilading fire Hunt’s batteries unleashed upon Lee’s men.

The Barefoot Brigade
“One of the best Civil War novels I have read.”—James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom From Chickamauga to Spotsylvania, from Gettysburg to Appomattox, The Barefoot Brigade is an unforgettable Civil War novel about the brotherhood of soldiers. War has ripped Martin Hasford’s nation apart, and like many men, he is torn between his devotion to his family and his sense of duty. Leaving his wife and children behind to run the family farm near Elkhorn Tavern, Hasford embarks on a path from which he may never return—and on which he meets men as embattled as himself: the Fawley brothers, young backwoodsmen running from the; Beverly Cass, a son of plantation privilege; Guthrie Scaggs, a judge turned army officer; Sidney Dinsmore, a no-account drunk; and Liverpool Morgan, a Welsh gambler. Together these men form a tight niche in the Third Arkansas Infantry Regiment, trudging from the Ozark foothills, headed east into one cataclysmic battle after another, determined to beat back the Yankees and end the war. A testament to a special breed of American, The Barefoot Brigade is a work of undeniable and lasting power.

STONEWALL JACKSON: Address of Colonel Roger Preston Chew,
This book is a transcript of the exact speech given by Colonel Roger Preston Chew at the Virginia Military Institute on the occasion of the unveiling of Moses Ezekiel’s statue of Stonewall Jackson, June 19, 1912. Col. R. P. Chew was Chief of Horse Artillery in the Army of Northern Virginia, who had served under Jackson. In his speech, he gives a capsule history of Jackson's early life and military career. This is a good book to read to get a "bird's eye view," of Jackson's campaigns in concentrated form. From there, the reader can proceed to the more minute details of Jackson's military achievements found in other works. Thirteen pages of annotations have been added as end-notes which enhance the reader's grasp of the action in those stirring times and provide bonus reading material which is most informative. Over ten new illustrations bring the book to life. This is a quick, but gratifying read. This edition has been re-typeset by a real person to be compatible with the electronic reader rather than being an old scanned copy.

A Square Foot of Calfskin
Jonah McCarver's daddy must have had a premonition, because Jonah has a way of jumping with both feet into the biggest trouble he can find. Riding off after his father and brother to defend Texas from Yankee aggression seems like a great idea, especially since they've forbidden him from coming along. But enlisting in the Texas volunteers is harder than he expects, and soon he finds his horse, his rifle, everything but his clothes and his drum stolen, and himself bundled north to the United States Army. The Army is preparing for a fight, and it looks like they'll get one--and soon Jonah finds himself embroiled on the wrong side in a conflict that promises to be nothing like he imagined.

Jeb Stuart: Cavalier (1908)
Charles Haven Ladd Johnston (1878 - 1943) was an 1899 graduate of Harvard, lecturer on military history at M.I.T., and prolific author of many books on the American West, such as “Custer’s Last Stand”; “Famous Indian Chiefs”; “Famous Scouts”James Ewell Brown "Jeb" Stuart (February 6, 1833 – May 12, 1864) was a United States Army officer from the U.S. state of Virginia, who later became a Confederate States Army general during the American Civil War. He was known to his friends as "Jeb", from the initials of his given names. Stuart was a cavalry commander known for his mastery of reconnaissance and the use of cavalry in support of offensive operations. While he cultivated a cavalier image (red-lined gray cape, yellow sash, hat cocked to the side with an ostrich plume, red flower in his lapel, often sporting cologne), his serious work made him the trusted eyes and ears of Robert E. Lee's army and inspired Southern morale.THE greatest leader of Southern cavalry during the war between the Northern and Southern States in America, was General Joseph Ewell Brown Stuart, familiarly known as Jeb. He possessed all the qualities which make the true leader of cavalry. He was a man of the most winning personality. He was courteous; affectionate; kind; yet he possessed courage;...

Culpepper Flag 3X5 Foot SolarMax
Culpeper Flag 3X5 Foot Nylon - The Culpeper flag is somewhat doubtful historically. It only dates to Lossing's 19th Century book on the American Revolution and there isn't any documentation about it otherwise. Also, there are no colors as it was illustrated as a line drawing. Also, Lossing says the Culpeper Minute Men used it but also says they were active 1776-77, so 1775 date not supported at all. There is supposed to be a contemporary account of this flag, but it cannot be found. While I personally cannot account for the historical usage of the flag, I know that the flag was indeed used in the Revolution by soldiers from Culpeper County, Virginia. I know this because Culpeper County is just north of Madison County, where I am from, and during the Revolution Madison was still part of Culpeper and Orange counties. Several people from the Madison area fought in the Culpeper Minutemen. I also know that the Culpeper flag was flown by several Civil War Confederate units from the area. Quite a few Madison residents served in those units and the flag is documented in their letters home which are preserved at the Madison Public Library and the Kemper Mansion in the town of Madison. I also know that the flag of the Culpeper Minutemen is currently used as the official flag of Culpeper Co...
