The Papers of Jefferson Davis September 1864--May 1865 by Jefferson Davis ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the last nine months of the Civil War, virtually all of the news reports and President Jefferson Davis's correspondence confirmed the imminent demise of the Confederate States, the nation Davis had striven to uphold since 1861. But despite defeat after defeat on the battlefield, a recalcitrant Congress, naysayers in the press, disastrous financial conditions, failures in foreign policy and peace efforts, and plummeting national morale, Davis remained in office and tried to maintain the government -- even after the fall of Richmond -- until his capture by Union forces on May 10, 1865

The Virginia Campaign, May-June 1864 by Mark Grimsley ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Virginia campaign of Spring 1864 was a single, massive operation stretching hundreds of miles. The story of the campaign is also the story of the demise of two great armies. The scale of casualties and human suffering that the campaign inflicted makes it unique in U.S. history. Mark Grimsley's study, however, is not just another battle book. Grimsley places the campaign in the political context of the 1864 presidential election; questions conventional interpretations; and explores the campaign as a touchstone of the Southern myth of the "Lost Cause."
Manuscript Holdings of the Military History Research Collection ( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The U.S. Army Military History Research Collection has a large and rapidly expanding manuscript collection. It covers the entire range of American military history from colonial times to the present. The Civil War, the Indian Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, and the mid-Twentieth Century period are especially well represented. Many present-day and recently retired officers have deposited their papers here. Some of these generals have also recorded their reminiscences and reflections as part of the 'Senior Officers Debriefing Program'; transcripts of these recollections are available. Most of this manuscript material necessarily relates to regular and volunteer land forces of the United States. A few holdings, however, do pertain to the Coast Guard, Navy, Marines, and various air services. Some also deal with non-American forces and conflicts. A few, moreover, concern civilians caught up in the midst of war. This bibliography describes approximately 52% of present holdings
