American Bastille: A History of the Illegal Arrests and Imprisonment of American Citizens in the Northern and Border States on Account of Their Political Opinions During the Late Civil War
"Published in 1869, American Bastille remains the most complete account of arbitrary arrests made by the Lincoln administration during the Civil War. One hundred cases of political prisoners are described in detail. Anyone speaking against the government or against the war or resisting the draft was liable to military arrest with transport to state prisons far from home. People disappeared. They were held without trial and without being charged with any crime. These practices were unknown to Americans even under the English kings. It was not thought possible that authorities could issue such orders or that anyone would carry them out. American Bastille raises all the questions of state power and individual liberty: What are the foundations of popular government? What are the limits of executive authority in time of war? What are the privileges and immunities of the American citizen?"

"[Hardtack was] positively unsuitable fodder for anything that claims to be human...and I think it no exaggeration to say that any intelligent pig possessing the least spark of pride would have considered it a pure insult to have them put into his swill." (Wilbur Fisk, Civil War soldier). We know the uniforms they wore, the weapons they carried, and the battles they fought, but what did they eat and, of even greater curiosity, was it any good? Now, for the very first time, the food that fueled the armies of the North and the South and the soldiers' opinions of it--ranging from the sublime to just slime--is front and center in a biting, fascinating look at the Civil War as written by one of its most respected historians. There's even a comprehensive "cookbook" of actual recipes included for those intrepid enough to try a taste of the Civil War.

Paddy OWEN's Regulars: A History of the 69th Pennsylvania "Irish Volunteers"
During the American Civil War, the lads of the 69th Pennsylvania "Irish Volunteers" from Philadelphia fought in every battle with the Army of the Potomac. From 1861 to 1865 the regiment marched under its Irish Green battle flag in the midst of engagements from Glendale to Antietam to Gettysburg to Petersburg. They participated in the entire Peninsular campaign and at the battle of Glendale their bayonet charge to recover captured union artillery pieces was hailed as "the first successful bayonet charge of the war." They charged into the West Woods at Antietam and charged up Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg On July 3, 1863 at Gettysburg, the wall they defended was the target of Pickett's charge. That day they lost 50% of their men killed, wounded or captured along with their Colonel, Lieutenant Colonel and Major. In the Winter of 1864 the 69th became the only regiment in their Brigade to reenlist as a unit to fight the war to the end. At Spotsylvania, they attacked the "mule shoe" and captured a confederate battle flag. On to Cold Harbor and Petersburg they fought finally pursuing Lee's Army of Northern Virginia to surrender at Appomattox. Of the more than 1000 men who marched off to war in August 1861, only 56 remained on duty at Appomattox Courthouse. This book is about their history, their combat and their daily lives. It details the role they played in every battle and the personalities that constituted the regiment. Incorporating hundreds of personal letters with photographs and maps, the tale of the "Irish Volunteers" is examined on a day to day basis. From their roots as children of Irish immigrants during the Potato famine to their return home to Philadelphia in glory, the story of the 69th Pennsylvania "Irish Volunteers," Paddy Owen's regulars is the story of heroism and individual courage."

Black Southerners in Confederate Armies
For modern readers, the thought of African Americans serving within Confederate armies seems beyond comprehension and reason--and a paradox that contradicts all we thought we knew about the Civil War. Yet, this fine work presents historical accounts about African Americans who served within Confederate armies and includes photos and illustrations.

This volume includes articles from historical journals as well as first-person narratives and accounts from the Official Records and is a compelling presentation of material that documents the activities of men of color who served the South during the Civil War. The accounts are enlightening--and mind boggling!

A good reference for those interested in Civil War and Southern studies.

Texas and New Mexico on the Eve of the Civil War: The Mansfield & Johnston Inspections, 1859-1861 icon
"From 1859 to 1861, senior Army officers Lt. Col. Joseph E. Johnston and Col. Joseph K. F. Mansfield were charged with investigating and evaluating the welfare, efficiency, and combat readiness of troops in the Texas and New Mexico Departments of the Army. Their reports to the U.S. Inspector General’s Office are transcribed and presented here for the first time by noted Civil War historian Jerry Thompson.

"Johnston’s and Mansfield’s field reports provide fascinating profiles of personnel, society, and the material culture of members of the United States’ regular army. Careful witnesses and engaging reporters, the two men recorded an impressive range of observations in their inspection tours, ranging from such practical matters as the physical layout of army posts and the number and condition of horses and oxen in each unit to blunt accounts of the failures of commanders and their units. The reports take special note of army relations with local Hispanos, Anglo settlers, and Indians, and the officers’ accounts are a vivid record of the region and the soldiers on the frontier as the Union prepared for war".

The Valley of the Shadow: Two Communities in the American Civil War - The Eve of War
"An exciting, ground-level view of the Civil War through the innovative use of book, CD-ROM, and the World Wide Web, created by an award-winning historian. Two communities in America's Great Valley --Franklin county, Pennsylvania, and Augusta County, Virginia --separated by only a few hundred miles, share much in their politics and ways of life. Yet they emerge on opposing sides of a war in which they zealously send their sons to fight and die. Here we see a Civil War that is not the inevitable conflict of rival civilizations, but a human drama, immediate, particular, engrossing. This is history as lived experience, presented in a beautifully designed digital archive of letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, military records, maps, images, and music. With cutting-edge technology that makes full use of both CD-ROM and the Web, Valley of the Shadow allows us all --from beginners to buffs to experts --to navigate the past in ways not possible before. Whether your interests are in the Civil War, Southern history, military history, African-American history, or biography, you can explore them to the fullest here. The CD runs on both Macintosh and Windows platforms."

Even after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox, the Civil War continued to be fought, and surrenders negotiated, on different fronts. The most notable of these occurred at Bennett Place, near Durham, North Carolina, when Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston surrendered the Army of Tennessee to Union General William T. Sherman. In this first full-length examination of the end of the war in North Carolina, Mark Bradley traces the campaign leading up to Bennett Place.
