Confederate heroines : 120 southern women convicted by Union military justice by Thomas P Lowry( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1861 through 1865, southern women fought a war within a war. While most of their efforts involved activities such as rolling bandages and organizing charity fairs, many women in the Confederacy, particularly in border states, challenged Federal authority in more direct ways: smuggling maps, medicine, and munitions; aiding deserters; spying; feeding Confederate bushwhackers; cutting Federal telegraph wires. Thomas P. Lowry's investigation into some 75,000 Federal courts-martial - uncovered in National Archives files and mostly unexamined since the Civil War - brings to light women caught up in the inexorable Unionist judicial machinery. Their stories, published here for the first time, often in first-person testimony, compose a picture of courage and resourcefulness in the face of social, military, and legal constraints."--Jacket

Venereal disease and the Lewis and Clark expedition by Thomas P Lowry( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest challenges faced by William Clark and Meriwether Lewis on their 1804-6 Corps of Discovery expedition was that of medical emergencies on the trail. Without an attending physician, even routine ailments and injuries could have tragic consequences for the expedition's success and the safety of its members. Of these dangers, the most insidious and potentially devastating was the slow, painful, and oftentimes fatal ravage of venereal disease. Physician Thomas P. Lowry delves into the world of nineteenth-century medicine, uncovering the expedition's very real fear of venereal disease. Lewis and Clark knew they were unlikely to prevent their men from forming sexual liaisons on the trail, so they prepared for the consequences of encounters with potentially infected people, as well as the consequences of preexisting disease, by stocking themselves with medicine and the latest scientific knowledge from the best minds in America. Lewis and Clark's expedition encountered Native peoples who experienced venereal disease as a result of liaisons with French, British, Spanish, and Canadian travelers and had their own methods for curing its victims, or at least for easing the pain it inflicted. Lowry's careful study of the explorers' journals sheds new light on this neglected aspect of the expedition, showing in detail how sex and venereal disease affected the men and their mission, and describes how diverse peoples faced a common threat with the best knowledge and tools at their disposal
The attack on Taranto : blueprint for Pearl Harbor by Thomas P Lowry( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der er her tale om et komparativt studie over den betydning Taranto-angrebet fik for japansk offensiv planlægning med hangarskibsbaserede fly. Der foretages sammenligninger mellem ovennævnte angreb og Pearl Harbour-angrebet godt ét år senere. Det påvises, at den japanske søkrigsledelse uddrog erfaringerne fra Taranto-angrebet medens amerikanerne på samme tid undlod at lære om den nye søkrigsførelse, der kunne udføres med maritime angrebsfly, herunder at hangarskibet generelt var mere slagkraftigt end slagskibet
Tarnished eagles : the courts-martial of fifty Union colonels and lieutenant colonels by Thomas P Lowry( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Union army during the Civil War, a colonel was five times more likely to be court-martialed than a private. Worse, courts-martial of all ranks increased by 400 percent in the winter months. These, and dozens of other remarkable facts, have emerged in this first large-scale investigation of officer misbehavior in the War Between the States? The stories of? curmudgeons, drunkards, and outright fools, along with a statistical exploration of 22,000 other courts-martial, provide a pioneering study of the little-known world of Civil War misbehavior and clarify the often-bewildering dynamics between volunteer soldiers and their professional superiors"--Jacket
