Most widely held works by Bell Irvin Wiley
The life of Johnny Reb, the common soldier of the Confederacy by Bell Irvin Wiley( Book )

56 editions published between 1943 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is regarded as one of the best available accounts of the ordinary citizens who made up the Confederate army. The Life of Johnny Reb is not about the battles and skirmishes fought by the Confederate foot soldier. Rather, it is an intimate history of the soldier's daily life--the songs he sang, the foods he ate, the hopes and fears he experienced, the reasons he fought. The author has examined countless letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, and official records in constructing this frequently poignant, sometimes humorous account
The life of Billy Yank : the common soldier of the Union by Bell Irvin Wiley( Book )

49 editions published between 1952 and 2008 in English and held by 2,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the daily lives of the men in blue who fought to save the Union. With the help of many soldiers' letters and diaries, the author explains who these men were and why they fought, how they reacted to combat and the strain of prolonged conflict, and what they thought about the land and the people of Dixie. This social history reveals that while the Yanks and the Rebs fought for very different causes, the men on both sides were very much the same

Confederate women by Bell Irvin Wiley( Book )

13 editions published between 1965 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southern women of the 1860's, as here revealed with the help of their own letters and diaries, were decidedly not the clinging vines described in romantic writings of later years. In a very real sense, the tragic Civil War was, for the Confederates, a women's war. Women were ardent in advocating secession. Women were indefatigable in running farms and families and infirmaries while their men fought. Throughout the hopeless war, the women conducted themselves in ways that earned the solid respect of their men, and in ways that won for women the first measured gains toward equality
