The day Lincoln was almost shot : the Fort Stevens story by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book recounts the story of President Abraham Lincoln's role in the Battle of Fort Stevens in July 1864. This engagement stands apart in American history as the only time a sitting American president came under enemy fire while in office. In this new study of this overlooked moment in American history, Cooling poses a troubling question: What if Lincoln had been shot and killed during this short battle, nine months prior to his death by John Wilkes Booth's hand in Ford's Theater? A potential pivotal moment in the Civil War, the Battle of Fort Stevens could have changed - with Lincoln's demise - the course of American history

A concise history of the birth of the modern U.S. military-industrial complex from 1881-1917 including : shipbuilding, armor and armament, and business relationships between the government, the military and industry. Set in the populist and progressive eras, questions arose as to whether the U.S. should use public or private financing or an amalgamation of those production programs for materiel, construction, and tools of war. The author uses the Navy as a case study for analyzing institutional reactions, and national policies and requirements in economic, political, strategic, and technological sectors

Fort Donelson's legacy : war and society in Kentucky and Tennessee, 1862-1863 by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fort Donelson's Legacy portrays the tapestry of war and society in the upper southern heartland of Tennessee and Kentucky after the key Union victories at Forts Henry and Donelson in February 1862. Those victories, notes Benjamin Franklin Cooling, could have delivered the decisive blow to the Confederacy in the West and ended the war in that theater. Instead, what followed was terrible devastation and bloodshed that embroiled soldier and civilian alike. Cooling compellingly describes a struggle that was marked not only by the movement of armies and the strategies of generals but also by the rise of guerrilla bands and civil resistance. It was, in part, a war fought for geography - for rivers and railroads and for strategic cities such as Nashville, Louisville, and Chattanooga. But it was also a war for the hearts and minds of the populace ... In exploring the complex terrain of 'total war' that steadily engulfed Tennessee and Kentucky, Cooling draws on a huge array of sources, including official military records and countless diaries and memoirs. He makes considerable use of the words of participants to capture the attitudes and concerns of those on both sides."--Dust jacket

Monocacy : the battle that saved Washington by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At Monocacy, Maryland on July 9, 1864, the decisive battle of Robert E. Lee's 1864 offensive against Washington D.C. occurred. There the Union's Lew Wallace fatally delayed Jubal Early's onrushing army and saved Washington from the threat of capture in an election year. Literally a struggle to gain time, Monocacy was one of the most important battles of the war, declared Abraham Lincoln's Register [sic] of the Treasury, Lucius E. Chittenden. Confederate Brigadier General John B. Gordon remembered it as among the hardest fought contests of the war. Monocacy is a story rich in drama and irony. Sent to defend a crucial railroad bridge, Union forces fought gallantly for that highway to Washington, embroiling Early's veterans in a bloodbath along the Monocacy River
