The LeMat Revolver has always held a special place in the hearts of Civil War enthusiasts. No other weapon is so emblematic of the Confederacy.

(Father Ryan) Beagle, Donald / Giemza, Bryan - POET OF THE LOST CAUSE - A LIFE OF FATHER RYAN - Univ Tennessee Press - ISBN# 9781572336063 - BRAND NEW Hardcover in Dust Jacket - Still in Publisher Shrinkwrap! Father Abram J. Ryan (1838-1886) held dual roles in the post-Civil War era: he was at once an architect of ascendant Lost Cause ideology and one of its leading icons. Among Southern sympathizers after the war, his celebrity placed him in a pantheon of Confederate figures that included Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Lee's surrender at Appomattox catapulted the then twenty-seven-year-old Catholic chaplain to regional and finally national fame. His verses, which investigated faith and propagated a romanticized view of the Southern cause, went through forty-seven editions by the 1930s, and Ryan himself became a near-mythical figure: the celebrated "Poet-Priest of the South." In his eulogy for Father Ryan, Hannis Taylor declared, "The lost cause became incarnate in the heart of Father Ryan, who cherished it as his forefathers had cherished the cause of Ireland." Ryan's deep involvement in a variety of causes-Southern, Catholic, and Irish-brought him into dialogue with cultural movements ranging from Fenianism and public school debates to sentimentalism and female religious orders. He also edited two influential postwar newspapers, and his writings made him familiar to figures ranging from Orestes Brownson and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Jefferson Davis and John Mitchel. His posthumous influence extended to such writers as William Faulkner, Margaret Mitchell, O. Henry, and Flannery O'Connor. Praised by President William McKinley, who recited his favorite Father Ryan verses in the White House, and by Joseph Pulitzer, who made a bequest for a Ryan memorial, Ryan was well-loved by those who commemorated a nearly imagined antebellum South-so much so that the myth of Ryan sometimes rivaled the myth of the Old South. A lack of verifiable information about Father Ryan's life aided this mythologizing process. Biographical material lies scattered in archives around the nation and the world, and much is spurious or hagiographical, particularly concerning the nature of Ryan's military service, which has remained (until now) a mystery. The result of meticulous scholarship and decades of careful collecting to create a body of reliable information, this definitive, full-length biography of the enigmatic Confederate poet presents a close examination of the man behind the myth and separates Lost Cause legend from fact. - Publisher's List Price - $48.95 - Our Price - $44.95

This book explores the moment when literature and history collided and literature rewrote history.

(11thMO) Dennis W.

Hard as nails and loyal to a fault, the men of the "Eagle Brigade" would follow their commanders "into hell if they ordered." They battled two Confederate regiments at Iuka, turned the tide at Battery Robinett at Corinth, assaulted the impossible Stockade Redan at Vicksburg as whole ranks of soldiers were cut down, and broke Hood's line at Nashville. Although the 11th Missouri ranks among the 300 top regiments of the Civil War, little of its history has been formally recorded. This study provides a detailed account of the regiment's four-and-a-half years of outstanding service and a roster - Publisher's List Price = $39.95 - Our Price - $35

Bond, Priscilla - A MARYLAND BRIDE IN THE DEEP SOUTH : THE CIVIL WAR DIARY OF PRISCILLA BOND - LSU Press - -BRAND NEW Hardcover with a Dust Jacket - 384pp - Biblio - Index - Edited by Kimberly Harrison - A young newlywed from Baltimore endures the "strange land" of south Louisiana "They say I'm a Yankee but if wanting peace is Yankee then I am one. I am tired of Disunion of husband & wife." In 1858, nineteen-year-old Priscilla "Mittie" Munnikhuysen began a new diary that saw her marry, leave her family in the genteel Protestant seaboard culture of Chesapeake Bay, and take up residence with her wealthy husband, Howard Bond, in the frontier plantation society of Catholic south Louisiana. By 1865, Priscilla Bond had witnessed trials and disillusionments enough to fill a two-volume journal: her father-in-law's brutality toward his slaves; her husband's alleged ambush of Union soldiers and subsequent flight from home; the retaliatory burning of the family's sugar plantation in Houma; and the losses, horrors, and daily depredations of war. Published here for the first time, with extensive notes and a critical introduction by Kimberly Harrison, Bond's intimate writings illuminate the Civil War's impact on women, families, and individual identities. Occasionally Bond records her experiences for the benefit of later readers, but more often she uses her diary to carve a space and time for self-reflection, self-instruction, and self-persuasion. Nineteenth-century women's lives were defined by their relation to others as wife, mother, daughter, and sister and keeping a diary allowed Bond to claim time for herself. It served as a rhetorical tool that helped motivate her to conform to contemporary standards of "true womanhood," adapt to a harsh new environment, and survive the collapse of a civilization - Publisher's List Price = $45 - Our Price - $41.95
(McClellan) BonekemperIII, Edward H. - MCCLELLAN AND FAILURE: A STUDY OF CIVIL WAR FEAR, INCOMPETENCE AND WORSE- McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 9780786428946 -BRAND NEW Laminated Softcover - 212pp - Photos - llustrations - Maps - Notes - Biblio - Index - In the eyes of many historians, Union General George B. McClellan single-handedly did more damage to the Union war effort than any other individual including Confederate commander Robert E. Lee. McClellan's success in the Mexican War along with his prestigious position as president of the Eastern Division of the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad had left him well positioned to enter the Union Army when hostilities began. Originally a major general in command of the Ohio Volunteers, McClellan attained the same rank in the regular Army three weeks after the beginning of the Civil War. Promoting his own ideas and career regardless of the consequences, McClellan spent his Civil War command defying his superiors and attempting to avoid battle, eventually becoming a thorn in the side of President Lincoln and the Union cause. Removed from command on November 5, 1862, McClellan's overly cautious attitude nevertheless permeated the Army of the Potomac for years. From West Point to Antietam, this volume examines his Army career. The main focus of the work is McClellan's Civil War service and the ways in which the man and his decisions affected the course of the war. The Union Army's invasion of northern Virginia, the Peninsula Campaign and the Second Battle of Bull Run are examined in detail with special emphasis on the roles which McClellan played or did not play. Through a combination of incompetence and paranoia, McClellan managed to throw away numerous chances at a Union victory and, consequently, a quicker end to the war. Excerpts from McClellan's orders and correspondence provide a contemporary picture and firsthand motives for his actions. An appendix examines the treatment given McClellan by various historians - Publisher's List Price = $35 -Our Price - $32.99

McClellan's Army of the Potomac launched a bloody offensive up the Virginia Peninsula in an effort to capture the Confederate capital of Richmond. This study chronicles the pivotal but often overlooked turning point of the Peninsula Campaign--the Battle of Fair Oaks, also known as Seven Pines. At Fair Oaks, Confederate troops succeeded in driving back Union forces from the edge of Richmond before the Union troops stabilized their position. Though both sides claimed victory, the battle marked the end of the Union offensive. Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart, and Winfield Scott Hancock all rose to national prominence for their roles at Fair Oaks, while McClellan saw his reputation ruined. In the end, the legacy of Fair Oaks is one of missed chances and faulty execution, ensuring the war would continue for nearly three more years - Publisher's List Price = $35 - Our Price - $33.99

Full of blunders and missed opportunities, the campaign convinced the Kentuckians that the Confederacy was incapable of holding the state against determined Union forces. Among the disasters was the bloody battle of Perryville. Drawing on research in letters, diaries and regimental histories, this book tells the story of the South's ill-fated effort. The main focus is Perryville, where inexperience on both sides and the lack of cohesive Confederate action turned what could easily have been a Southern victory into1a disheartening retreat, forever relegating General Braxton Bragg to the annals of military mediocrity. Appendices include lists of Confederate and Union commands, strategic placements of the inexperienced regiments, and casualties.

Brown calls the creation of the 1st Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters "an experiment once noble and harmful." Confederate companies were composed largely of men from the same community who were accustomed to "the comfortable companionship of their neighbors and friends." Although elite units had been successful in other armies, the idea of separating men from their home companies and regiments to form a special battalion met with a degree of resistance. Nonetheless, Anderson and Shaaf molded the 1st Battalion Georgia Sharpshooters into a small force recognized for its efficiency at drill and bravery in battle. In all, no more than 360 officers and men served in the battalion's ranks (the maximum strength was 270 men during May 1863). The men of the battalion came from all over Georgia, but the unit considered Savannah its home city. The Sharpshooters first camped in the vicinity of the Georgia seaport where it aided in the defense of nearby Fort McAllister, located southwest of Savannah on the Great Ogeechee River. Later assigned to the brigade of General William H. T. Walker (the Walker-Wilson-Stevens-Jackson Georgia brigade), the battalion departed its home state and took part in the abortive effort to relieve Vicksburg, seeing action at Jackson, Mississippi in May and July 1863 - Publisher's List Price = $35 - Our Price - $31.95

(NC Monuments) Butler, Douglas J. - NORTH CAROLINA CIVIL WAR MONUMENTS - AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY - McFarland Pub - ISBN# 9780786468560 - BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 272pp - 137 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index - Monuments honoring leaders and victorious armies have been raised throughout history. Following the American Civil War, however, this tradition expanded, and by the early twentieth century, the Confederate dead and surviving veterans, although defeated in battle, ranked among the world's most commemorated troops. This memorialization, described in North Carolina Civil War Monuments, evolved through a challenging and contentious process accomplished over decades. Prompted by the need to rebury wartime dead, memorialization, led by women, first expressed regional grief and mourning then expanded into a vital aspect of Southern memory. In North Carolina, 109 Civil War monuments--101 honoring Confederate troops and eight commemorating Union forces--were raised prior to the Civil War centennial. Photographs showcase each memorial while committee records, legal documents, and contemporaneous accounts are used to detail the difficult process through which these monuments were erected. Their design, location, and funding reflect not only the period's sculptural and cultural milieu but also reveal one state's evolving grief and the forging of public memory - Publisher's List Price = $39.95 - Our Price - $33.95
