9780807129708: Judging Maria de Macedo: A Female Visionary and the Inquisition in Early Modern Portugal

As one of the few higher-ranking officers in the Army of Tennessee to avoid controversy. General Alexander P. Stewart (1821-1908) was an outstanding but not outrageous leader. Consequently, he has garnered little attention from historians. In this masterly biography. Sam Davis Elliott traces the life of this undeservedly obscure general from his early years at West Point through his involvement in nearly all the battles fought by the Army of Tennessee to his postwar career as an educator and Civil War park commissioner. More than the story of one man, Soldier of Tennessee poignantly conveys the triumphs and failures of the Confederate effort in the West and a divided nation's efforts at reconciliation.

About the Author:

Sam Davis Elliott is an attorney in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the editor of Dr. Quintard, Chaplain C.S.A. and Second Bishop of Tennessee: The Memoir and Civil War Diary of Charles Todd Quintard.

From Booklist:

Elliott chronicles a distinguished yet unsung military career, adding usefully to knowledge of the Civil War in the West. A graduate of West Point, Alexander P. Stewart (1821^-1908) spent most of his civilian career as a professional educator. In the war, he went with his native Tennessee and became one of the Confederacy's highest ranking officers, rising from major of artillery to lieutenant general as the last field commander of the Army of Tennessee. His career is scantily documented (e.g., no physical description of him survives), yet he appears to have been a sound tactician, taken good care of his men, and avoided the political backbiting that disfigured the careers of so many other western Confederates. After the war, he returned to teaching as a professor at Ole Miss. Resigning in 1886, he later completed his public career by establishing the Chickamauga Battlefield Park for the National Park Service. A straightforward and useful biography of a straightforward and useful man. Roland Green
