It's important so the readers can understand why Lincoln did not like the Little Napoleon. Sears does a remarkable job of putting you at the battle of Antietam. He puts in words vivid details of what the soldiers on both sides endured.
It was horrific what these soldiers and animals suffered. This book should be a must read. What these men did for their country should never be forgotten.3 Flags of the Civil War, Confederate. Men At Arms Series by Philip Katcher with color plates by Rick Scollins. The very heart of the Confederate fighting unit was its flag, which came in a variety of designs and colours. The flag was the rallying point on the field of battle and it marked the unit headquarters in camp. In 1865, at the war's conclusion, the furling of the defeated Confederate banners signalled the end of that episode in history.
Some rare photographs along with the illustrations portray the myriad variations of flags used to represent the seceding southern states. 4 A Prototype of a Confederate Hospital Center in Lynchburg, Virginia by Peter W. Houck's book on civil war medicine opens up a forgotten world. For reasons that he explains, Lynchburg developed as a major hospital center for the Confederacy, and at the war's peak some 30 hospitals were in operation, many in converted tobacco warehouses.Houck offers evidence on measures taken to reduce mortality rates, as well as anecdotal discussions of some of the individuals who played leading roles, both the professional medical men and the volunteers -- including some determined society ladies who did not always see eye to eye with the more conservative of the doctors. Great information for any Civil War historian or medical history buff. 5 The Battles of Appomattox Station and Appomattox Court House April 8-9, 1865 by Chris M.
