Personal memoirs of U.S. Grant by Ulysses S Grant( Book )

20 editions published between 1952 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faced with failing health and financial ruin, the Civil War's greatest general and former president wrote his personal memoirs to secure his family's future - and won himself a unique place in American letters. Devoted almost entirely to his life as a soldier, Grant's Memoirs traces the trajectory of his extraordinary career - from West Point cadet to general-in-chief of all Union armies. For their directness and clarity, his writings on war are without rival in American literature, and his autobiography deserves a place among the very best in the genre. This Penguin Classics edition of Grant's Personal Memoirs includes an indispensable introduction and explanatory notes by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian James M. McPherson
The saints and the Union : Utah Territory during the Civil War by E. B Long( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 2001 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long, noted Civil War historian and long-time research assistant to the late Bruce Catton, reveals a neglected but fascinating chapter in American frontier, Mormon, Indian, and Civil War history. His lively portrayal of two volatile personalities -- Mormon leader Brigham Young and U.S. military commander General Patrick Connor -- depicts events which helped shape the "opening up of the West." While the Civil War raged in the East, the Mormons in Utah zealously continued to guard their cultural identity and church practices from federal control. At the same time, however, they lobbied hard for statehood, but were continually thwarted by a series of inept or antagonistic federal authorities. Drawing upon seldom-used archival material from the Mormon Church, Long's astute study depicts the earnest nature of this Mormon-federal conflict by focusing upon the battle of wills and words beteen Young and Connor. - Jacket flap

7 editions published between 1962 and 1968 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Jonathan Jackson, commander of Confederate troops in the Civil War, was known for his battlefield skill--his intransigence at Bull Run (which earned him the name "Stonewall"), his knack for knowing when to attack and retreat, which he showed throughout the Shenandoah campaign, his tactical brilliance at Chancellorsville. He was stern, a strict Calvinist, a single-minded officer for whom religion and the army were everything. Yet he had the undivided loyalty of the men he commanded. This biography, first published in 1898, is a study of Jackson's military campaigns from the Mexican War where he served under Winfield Scott to his death in 1863 at Chancellorsville
