The Great Rebellion; the emergence of the American conscience by Earl Schenck Miers( Book )

24 editions published between 1958 and 1971 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about the American people and what happened to them during one Christmas week, as the result of a tragic Thursday, and on a Palm Sunday. It is a book of love and hate, of faith and fear, of tormented loyalties and unyielding principles, of passion and patience and greed and sacrifice. It is a book of some moments that took years to crystallize and of other moments that were clear and complete in the winking of an eye. It is a book about persons so well known in history and legend that we speak their names as though they were honored kinsmen and about others who rest today beneath crumbled, forgotten tombstones. They were all related, these people--the great and the unknown, the friend and the foe ; and although they traveled many roads they reached the same valley, and, crossing over, rested beneath the same trees. Their tragedy they called the American Civil War ; their victory they called Freedom.-- Prologue

Gettysburg by Earl Schenck Miers( Book )

21 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed to re-create the story of Gettysburg in terms of the men and women who lived through the anxiety of the invasion and the battle. From diaries, letters, yellowing manuscripts, regimental histories, and the memors of generals and soldiers the editors have sought to reconstruct the emerging narrative of those decisive days. There appeared no need to offer the reader simply another military history of Gettysburg, for that task has been well performed at least a score of times. Instead the editors have concerned themselves with the human document of Gettysburg: why these men of the North and South fought and died here, what mean or noble thoughts motivated their acts, what passions and compassions stirred their hearts. To the testimony of generals and their lieutenants the editors have given patient attention, but no more os than to the testimony of the foot soldier or the cannoneer, the housewife or the farm boy. Since all history is lived in half truth, the reader who follows this unfolding of the story of Gettysburg will not be dismayed by the contradictions that are sometimes apparent in the recollections of various participants. The impression of facts rather than the facts themselves motivate the events of history, and that is why history as written after years of research and reflection is often more truthful than the actual experience of history"--Introduction

When the world ended : the diary of Emma LeConte by Emma LeConte( Book )

6 editions published between 1957 and 1987 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emma was seventeen years of age when these passionate pages were written, and the war had brought her, she said, "little of the exuberant joy that people talk about as the natural heritage of youth." Four years of bitter blood-letting she reduced to a single stark sentence: "No pleasure, no enjoyment -- nothing but rigid economy and hard work -- nothing but the stern realities of life." With a power of expression far beyond the normal youth, she caught the agonizing immediacy of those months -- the fear, the courage, the sense of betrayal, the nothingness of a world torn asunder. Sherman marching into South Carolina -- with those five cruel words began the realization that the cause was lost, the dream ending, a way of life dying. - Introduction
