17 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the end of the Civil War, the nation recommenced its expansion onto traditional Indian tribal lands, setting off a wide-ranging conflict that would last more than three decades. In an exploration of the wars and negotiations that destroyed tribal ways of life even as they made possible the emergence of the modern United States, Peter Cozzens gives us both sides in comprehensive and singularly intimate detail. He illuminates the encroachment experienced by the tribes and the tribal conflicts over whether to fight or make peace, and explores the squalid lives of soldiers posted to the frontier and the ethical quandaries faced by generals who often sympathized with their native enemies,"--Amazon.com

When North and South met among the desolate mountains of northwestern Georgia in 1863, they began one of the bloodiest and most decisive campaigns of the Civil War.

General John Pope : a life for the nation by Peter Cozzens( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ambitious and outspoken, John Pope was one of the most controversial figures to hold high command during the Civil War, Reconstruction, and in the American West. General John Pope: A Life for the Nation is the first full biography of this much maligned leader who played crucial roles in both the Eastern and the Western Theaters of the Civil War." "Civil War scholar Peter Cozzens has mined Pope's own memoirs and a wealth of other primary sources to provide a complete picture of this gifted strategist. Uncovering new information about Pope's pre- and postwar career and his path to power, Cozzens delineates the political environment that surrounded Pope and provided the context for his actions."--Jacket
The military memoirs of General John Pope by John Pope( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Union general John Pope was among the most controversial and misunderstood figures to hold major command during the Civil War. Before being called east in June 1862 to lead the Army of Virginia against General Robert E. Lee, he compiled an enviable record in Missouri and as commander of the Army of the Mississippi. After his ignominious defeat at the Second Battle of Bull Run, he was sent to the frontier. Over the next twenty-four years Pope held important department commands on the western plains and was recognized as one of the army's leading authorities on Indian affairs, but he never again commanded troops in battle
Battles and leaders of the Civil War by Peter Cozzens( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first four volumes of Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, published in the late nineteenth century, became the best selling and most frequently cited works ever published on the Civil War. Volume 5, assembled by the acclaimed military historian Peter Cozzens, carries on the tradition of its namesake, offering a dazzling collection of articles written by military and civilian leaders, North and South, on a broad array of war-related topics. This massive new collection of primary documents provides a wealth of fresh material on the major events, key personalities, and undying controversies of the war, often from opposing points of view. Featured articles include General Grant on the second battle of Bull Run, General Beauregard on the Shiloh campaign, General Sherman on the conference at City Point, and Joshua Chamberlain on the Fredericksburg campaign. President Hayes writes on Grant and Sherman in 1864, General Johnson on negotiations with Sherman, and General E.P. Alexander on Lee at Appomattox. Other pieces include General Winfield S. Hancock's recollections of Gettysburg, an interview with General Longstreet by Henry W. Grady, and an account of life in the White House with Lincoln by John Hay. The articles in this superlative compilation appeared in the decades following the war, some in such well-known magazines as Century, Harper's, Hearst's, and McClure's, others in Ohio Soldier, the Magazine of American History, and similar publications largely unknown to modern readers. Most of the articles were published subsequent to the completion of the four volumes of the series, and only a fraction of them ever appeared in book form. Presented here with dozens of maps and more than one hundred illustrations, these invaluable documents bring vividly to life the wartime experiences of the men who determined the course of the nation."--Jacket
Toward "thorough, accurate, and reliable" : a History of the Foreign relations of the United States series by William B McAllister( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toward "Thorough, Accurate, and Reliable" explores the evolution of the Foreign Relations of the United States documentary history series from its antecedents in the early republic through the early 21st century implementation of its current mandate, the 1991 Foreign Relations statute. This book traces how policymakers and an expanding array of stakeholders translated values like "security," "legitimacy," and "transparency" into practice as they debated how to balance the government's obligation to protect sensitive information with its commitment to openness. Determining the "people's right to know" has fueled lively discussion for over two centuries, and this work provides important, historically informed perspectives valuable to policymakers and engaged citizens as that conversation continues"--Publisher's website

In an exploration of the wars and negotiations that destroyed tribal ways of life even as they made possible the emergence of the modern United States, Peter Cozzens gives us both sides in comprehensive and singularly intimate detail.
