Description : This is a book no library, school, college or university should be without. Although Fame's Eternal Camping Ground is a book of fiction, it has been meticulously researched for authenticity from well documented sources, including a number of diaries, highly respected journals and official government publications. Where conflicting historical accounts of the battle were encountered, the most plausible probability was used in this novel. This novel is one-stop-shopping for high school and college students doing research on the Civil War Battle of Brice's Crossroads or on Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Not all of the events portrayed in this novel are purely historical, a few from the author's imagination, are used in conjunction with the major fictional characters in order to lend credence to and to blend them into the true historical perspective. Although a fictional tragedy, "Fame's Eternal Camping Ground" brings the horrors of this famous Civil War battle to a climax in a great blend of factual history, fictional romance, and simply good story telling. From award winning writer, newspaper editor, retired soldier, Dr. Gene Ladnier, author of the "Rebel Chronicles Series. Dr. Ladnier tells the story of the battle "as if he had been there. Even the sights, sounds, and smells of the battle creep from the pages as each character is caught up in this monumental struggle." Highly Recommended!" The Southern Sentinel. A book selection of "The Forrest Historical Society."

Description : At the now-peaceful spot of Tennessee's Fort Pillow State Historic Area, a horrific incident in the nation's bloodiest war occurred on April 12, 1864. Just as a high bluff in the park offers visitors a panoramic view of the Mississippi River, John Cimprich's absorbing book affords readers a new vantage on the American Civil War as viewed through the lens of the Confederate massacre of unionist and black Federal soldiers at Fort Pillow. Cimprich covers the entire history of Fort Pillow, including its construction by Confederates, its capture and occupation by federals, the massacre, and ongoing debates surrounding that affair. He sets the scene for the carnage by describing the social conflicts in federally occupied areas between secessionists and unionists as well as between blacks and whites. In a careful reconstruction of the assault itself, Cimprich balances vivid firsthand reports with a judicious narrative and analysis of events. He shows how Major General Nathan B. Forrest attacked the garrison with a force outnumbering the Federals roughly 1,500 to 600, and a breakdown of Confederate discipline resulted. The 65 percent death toll for black unionists was approximately twice that for white unionists, and Cimprich concludes that racism was at the heart of the Fort Pillow massacre. Fort Pillow, a Civil War Massacre, and Public Memory serves as a case study for several major themes of the Civil War: the great impact of military experience on campaigns, the hardships of military life, and the trend toward a more ruthless conduct of war. The first book to treat the fort's history in full, it provides a valuable perspective on the massacre and, through it, on the war and the world in which it occurred.

Description : Bedford Forrest was not a jester or joker, but he did have a good sense of humor. When a difficult, combative situation was under control, which with him it inevitably would be, his demeanor would lighten up, and Forrests humorous side would come out. He was also a master of the poker bluff and psychological warfare, and he played these to great advantage during the war. One of the best episodes of this was the 1863 week-long pursuit and surrender of an entire Federal brigadeover 1,700 mento fewer than 600 of his own. The Union commander had seen the Confederates three cannons, but a Forrest ruse and bluff made it appear as fifteen cannons, to which the astonished Union man asked Forrest how many he had. Forrest replied, I reckon thats all thats kept up. This book is a trove of those factual and almost-factual happenings.

Description : This book offers a rare insight into the history of the Civil War in the western theatre through the eyes of a regimental surgeon. The newly graduated Dr. Thomas S. Hawley served in one of the premier fighting regiments of the Union Army. This collection of letters is important for two reasons: They detail his four and a half year career in the army through firsthand accounts of the various campaigns and his numerous duties, and they chronicle his interactions with captured Confederate soldiers, his encounters with pro–Southern and pro–Northern civilians in areas occupied by the Union Army, his experiences with freed slaves and numerous other daily events in the war. Notable among the letters is his record of the early Civil War in Missouri, the Vicksburg Campaign, the Battle of Tupelo and the Battle of Nashville.
