In the years just preceding the War of 1812 one man, an Indian, dominated the American frontier-Tecumseh. He emerges here as a vivid, splendid character, a man of unusual talents and noble aims, whereas in much previous history and biography he has been depicted as a baffling, sinister, often bloody figure-a man of inscrutable motives whose scheming for a time actually threatened to delay the settlement of the Northwest. Tecumseh's great oratorical powers, his statesmanship, his military acumen, his personal magnetism won him the passionate loyalty of his Indians and the admiration of even his white enemies. In nobility of character, in leadership and in devotion to a lost cause he suggests points of comparison with Robert E. Lee. The need for this book is indicated by the fact that until its publication the standard biography has continued to be Benjamin Drake's book first published in 1841 and ranks as a collectors' item. Tecumseh's great vision was a confederation of all the Indian tribes to check the encroachment of the whites on the Indian lands. His journeys took him from the Mohawk River in the east to the Arkansas in the west, from Lake Superior to the Gulf of Mexico. Mr. Tucker offers proof that the British in Canada did not push Tecumseh on war with the United States-as historians have claimed-but on the contrary Tecumseh urged the British to declare war. The high point of Tecumseh's point probably came when with Major General Brook he captured Detroit and made a sizeable American army to surrender. Only a few months later his forces, outnumbered and almost unsupported by their brave and futile stand on the Thames River. Tecumseh was killed, and his dream of a red empire broken. So ended the mighty vision and the greatest of the great chiefs

Zeb Vance: champion of personal freedom by Glenn Tucker( Book )

6 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rugged, dynamic, controversial -- Zebulon Baird Vance was one of the dominant personalities of the South for nearly half a century. Here is the first full-scale biography of this important figure. This colorful and carefully researched study centers on Vance's dedication to democratic institutions during the Civil War. He maintained unyieldingly -- alone of all the governors, North and South -- the writ of habeas corpus in its full vigor, yet it was the Governor's state, North Carolina, which made the greatest contribution in men and spirit to the Southern cause. As a staunch unionist before the war, Vance was dedicated to individual liberty. Under the Confederacy, where he was called 'the war governor of the South', he battled for personal rights. Again, in the reunited nation, he was a powerful debater in the Senate during the 1880s and 1890s"--Jacket

Chattanooga! ... where soldiers stole the battle from the generals. The final great battle of 1863, the one that took Bragg out of the field at last, and sent Grant on to Virginia in command of the Union Army. For the Federals it was a great victory over hunger, siege, and low morale: for the tired Confederates it was the end of a bad year in the West, cheered only momentarily by the brief glory of Chickamauga, Chattanooga opened the way for worse days yet to come, for the long retreat, and for Sherman

"Gettysburg had everything," Henry S. Commager recently wrote. "It was the greatest battle ever fought on our continent; it boasts more heroic chapters than any other one battle. It was the high tide of the Confederacy." This is the way Glenn Tucker has always seen it and this is the way he reports it in High Tide at Gettysburg. The story of Gettysburg has never been told better, perhaps never so well as in this volume. Glenn Tucker has the immediacy of a war correspondent on the spot along with the insights that come from painstaking research. The armies live again in his pages. In his big, generous book Glenn Tucker has room to follow Lee's army up from Chancellorsville across Maryland into Pennsylvania. With Jackson recently killed, Lee had revamped his top command. When Meade's men caught up with the Confederates and the two armies were probing to locate each other's concentrations, Mr. Tucker's account becomes sharper, more dramatic. His rapidly moving, vivid narrative of the three-day battle is filled with fascinating episodes and fresh, stimulating appraisals. Glenn Tucker is akin to Ernie Pyle in his interest in people. With him you meet Harry King Burgwyn, "boy colonel" of the 26th North Carolina, just turned twenty-one, who slugged it out with Col. Henry A. Morrow of the 24th Michigan until few survived on either side. You feel the patriotic surge of white-haired William Barksdale, who led his Mississippians on the "grandest charge of the war" and died as he broke the Federal line. You sense the magnetism of Hancock the Superb, and feel the driving power of rugged Uncle John Sedgwick as he hurried his big VI Corps to the battlefield. With Old Man Greene you struggle in the darkness to save the Culp's Hill trenches. And much more. Mr. Tucker weaves in many sharp thumbnail biographical sketches without slowing the action. Many North Carolinians, previously slighted, here receive their due. Full, dramatic, immediate, here is Gettysburg
