Abraham Lincoln and men of war-times some personal recollections of war and politics during the Lincoln administration by Alexander K McClure ( )
25 editions published between 1892 and 2009 in English and held by 2,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
BCR's Shelf2Life American Civil War Collection is a unique and exciting collection of pre-1923 titles focusing on the American Civil War and the people and events surrounding it. From memoirs and biographies of notable military figures to firsthand accounts of famous battles and in-depth discussions of slavery, this collection is a remarkable opportunity for scholars and historians to rediscover the experience and impact of the Civil War. The volumes contained in the collection were all written within 60 years of the end of the war, which means that most authors had living memory of it and were facing the effects of the war while writing. These firsthand accounts allow the modern reader to more fully understand the culture of both the Union and Confederacy, the politics that governed the escalation and end of the war, the personal experience of life during the Civil War, and the most difficult and polarizing question in the history of the United States: slavery. The American Civil War Collection allows new readers access to the contemporary arguments and accounts surrounding the war, and is a vital new tool in understanding this important and pivotal chapter in American history

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally commissioned for the Philadelphia Weekly Times and first issued as a single volume in 1878, The Annals of the Civil War contains more than fifty articles and encompasses a variety of important personalities and topics. Within these pages Longstreet evaluates Lee's performance in Pennsylvania and his mistakes at Gettysburg; Kyd Douglas pays tribute to Stonewall Jackson as both general and man; H.V. Redfield examines the circumstances of John Hunt Morgan's death; P.G.T. Beauregard discusses his brilliant fortification on Charleston Harbor; Joseph Johnson critiques Sherman's account of the Dalton-Atlanta operations; J.H. Reagan recalls his pursuit and capture that led to the last Confederate surrender; and much more. But the scope of The Annals is not limited to the achievements of the sword. Other articles focus on the political and personal aspects of the war. The exchange of prisoners, the carnival of fraud and profiteering that plagued both sides, Confederate Negro enlistments, the morale of Lee's army, as well as recollections of Generals Grant, Reynolds, Meade, Stuart, and Lee are also included
