9780807857847: Bentonville: The Final Battle of Sherman and Johnston (Civil War America)

The battle of Bentonville, the only major Civil War battle fought in North Carolina, was the Confederacy's last attempt to stop the devastating march of William Tecumseh Sherman's army north through the Carolinas. Despite their numerical disadvantage, General Joseph E. Johnston's Confederate forces successfully ambushed one wing of Sherman's army on March 19, 1865 but were soon repulsed. For the Confederates, it was a heroic but futile effort to delay the inevitable: within a month, both Richmond and Raleigh had fallen, and Lee had surrendered.

Book Description:

" Bentonville is a well-paced, readable book that places the engagement within the context of the Carolinas Campaign. The author's extensive footnotes and bibliography evince years of dedicated research on the topic and the maps are models of clarity. . . . . This book helps rectify that long neglect of campaigns and battles of the western theater."-- Journal of Southwest Georgia History

From the Inside Flap:

Nathaniel Hughes offers a full-length tactical study of this important battle. In careful detail, he lays out Confederate and Union troop movements and places the engagement within the larger military framework of the last months of the war. Analyzing the reasons for the initial success and eventual failure of Johnston's offensive, Hughes maintains that Sherman showed great restraint by remaining committed to the larger goal of reaching Goldsboro rather than stopping to pursue or destroy the defeated Confederates.
