Before her wider fame as the author of Little Women, Louisa May Alcott achieved recognition for her accounts of her work as a volunteer nurse in an army hospital. Written during the winter of 1862-63, her lively dispatches appeared in the newspapaer Commonwealth, where they were eagerly read by soldiers' friends and families. Then, as now, these chronicles revealed the desperate realities of battlefield medicine as well as the tentative first steps of women in military service.

    Newspaperman, short-story writer, poet and satirist, Ambrose Bierce is one of the most striking and unusual literary figures America has produced. Dubbed "Bitter Bierce" for his vitriolic wit and biting satire, his fame rests largely on a celebrated compilation of barbed epigrams, The Devil's Dictionary, and a book of short stories (Tales of Soldiers and Civilians, 1891). Most of the 16 selections in this volume have been taken from the latter collection.

    Stories in this edition include:

    • What I Saw at Shiloh
    • A Horseman in the sky
    • Chickamauga
    • One of the Missing
    • One Kind of Officer

    What was it like to be a poorly trained, ill-equipped, militiaman trying to defend your own home? What was it like to be stuffed into a makeshift submarine-an iron tube no more than 3 feet in diameter and propelled by a hand crank-and sent more than 30 feet below Charleston Harbor to attack the enemy? What was it like to be a Creek infantryman, riding into a Union post in frontier Oklahoma, carrying the rags of what had been your proud battle flag, knowing you were among the last of the Confederates to surrender?

    What was it really like to be a soldier during the Civil War?

    Brave Men in Desperate Times tells the stories of twenty-one ordinary Civil War soldiers-men who, by and large, have never had their stories published until now. These vivid, eyewitness accounts culled from battle reports, muster rolls, museum collections, family stories, and a handful of letters and diaries that have survived are a testament to the sacrifice, honor, and service of these courageous men.

    When the illustrated edition of The Civil War was first published, The New York Times hailed it as "a treasure for the ye and mind." Now Geoffrey Ward's magisterial work of history is available in a text-only edition that interweaves the author's narrative with the voices of the men and women who lived through that cataclysmic trial of our nationhood: not just Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Robert E. Lee, but genteel Southern ladies and escaped slaves, cavalry officers and common foot soldiers who fought in Yankee blue and Rebel gray.
    The Civil War also includes essays by our most distinguished historians of the era: Done E. Fehrenbacher, on the war's origins; Barbara J. Fields, on the freeing of the slaves; Shelby Foote, on the war's soliders and commanders; James M. McPherson, on the political dimensions of the struggle; and C. Vann Woodward, assessing the America that emerged from the war's ashes.

    Before his spectacular career as commanding general of the Union forces of the West, William Tecumseh Sherman experienced decades of frustration and failure. He participated in many of the critical events of early-nineteenth-century America: the protracted war against the Indians, the California gold rush, the banking panics, the political turmoil, and the elusive search for fame and fortune.
    Sherman's place in American history was still in doubt during the first stages of the Civil War, when he reluctantly led a Union brigade to humiliating defeat at Bull Run. It was not until his major role at the Battle of Shiloh that he began to assert his brilliance as a military commander. After his capture of Atlanta in 1864, which secured Abraham Lincoln's reelection, Sherman launched the infamous March to the Sea. Combining a ruthless scorched-earth strategy with shrewd psychological and propaganda, Sherman forever changed the nature of American warfare.

    This reminiscence of daily life on a Southern plantation during the Civil War was originally published in 1888. The book is filled with vivid details of everything from methods of making dyes and preparing foods to race relations and the effects of the war. A Blockaded Family is an unusual and beautifully-written primary source of Southern life inside the blockade, told from a point of view that is decidedly different from most post-war accounts.
