The military legacy of the Civil War by Jay Luvaas( Book )

17 editions published between 1959 and 1988 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colonel Henderson was a British army officer, the first one to undertake a serious study of the Civil War after 1870. Best known for his Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War, a classic military biography, Henderson's other writings, however, are comparatively unknown. In this volume Jay Luvaas has collected and introduced some of the most important of these: the text and original maps of The campaign of Fredericksburg (1886), which brought Henderson to the attention of the British Army's adjutant general, Sir Garnett Wolseley; four chapters from the posthumous collection of essays and lectures, The Science of War (1905)

Guide to the Vicksburg Campaign( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the same week that Union forces triumphed at Gettysburg, they also captured the river fortress at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Although much less memorialized than Gettysburg, the fall of Vicksburg was every bit as crucial to the Union cause. Pitting Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman against John Pemberton and Joseph Johnston, the victorious Vicksburg Campaign helped revive a war-weary North, gave it absolute control of the Mississippi River, severed the western Confederacy from the East, and further constricted the South's ability to wage war as the Union drove ever deeper into its heartland. It also gave Grant--the campaign's chief architect--a dramatic venue for demonstrating his maturing skills and intelligence as a strategist and field commander. Unlike other volumes in the U.S. Army War College Guides to Civil War Battles series, this one examines an entire campaign, looking at many interlinked battles and joint Army-Navy operations as they played out over seven months and thousands of square miles of rivers, streams, swamps, lakes, forests, hills, and plains surrounding Vicksburg. In addition to detailed coverage of the actual Siege of Vicksburg, the book also chronicles the battles at Jackson, Port Gibson, Raymond, Champions Hill, and Big Black Ridge. Eyewitness accounts by battle participants make these guides an invaluable resource for travelers and nontravelers who want a greater understanding of five of the most devastating yet influential years in our nation's history. Explicit directions to points of interest and maps--illustrating the action and showing the detail of troop position, roads, rivers, elevations, and tree lines as they were 130 years ago--help bring the battles to life. In the field, these guides can be used to recreate each battle's setting and proportions, giving the reader a sense of the tension and fear each soldier must have felt as he faced his enemy

Guide to the Atlanta campaign : Rocky Face Ridge to Kennesaw Mountain( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following William T. Sherman's capture of Chattanooga, the Union Army initiated a series of battles and operations that took it from the Tennessee border to the outskirts of Atlanta, with bloody confrontations at places such as Resaca and New Hope Church. Grant had ordered Sherman to penetrate the enemy's interior and inflict "all the damage you can against their War resources," and from the first major engagement at Rocky Face Ridge to the bitter standoff at Kennesaw Mountain, Sherman proceeded to do just that. This latest in the Army War College Guides to Civil War Battles offers a concise and easy-to-use introduction to Sherman's route, focusing on this first and most critical phase of the Atlanta campaign. It leads visitors to all of the pertinent sites: Dug Gap, Adairsville, Pickett's Mill, etc. The authors show respect for both sides of the fighting, but especially convey Sherman's special genius in mastering the logistical challenges that confronted him, moving reinforcements and supplies, and directing diverse offensive actions over immense--and immensely hostile--territory

"At the beginning of the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant worked in a store. Within 4 years he commanded the Union Armies and within 8 he was President of the United States. The Battle of the Wilderness was an indecisive, bloody tangle in a dense forest. Though a tactical stalemate, it was a vital strategic victory--one which led to the defeat of the Confederacy."
