Isaac Gordon Bradwells captivating personal narrative provides an honest description of those long-ago events of the 1860s which so importantly shaped our countrys history. A volunteer at 18, he was with his company aT the time of its inception and was in combat at the time of Lees surrender. Nearly every aspect of a young privates life in the Lawton-Gordon-Evans Brigade is vividly described. The intimate details he provides of his regiment and the personalities of its men give us insight that is not found elsewhere.

We learn from his remarkable story that Bradwell was for a brief time a member of Stonewall Jacksons "Foot cavalry," later among the Confederate infantry making the deepest penetration into the North during the Gettysburg Campaign, and part of the last of Lees army to leave enemy soil after the Gettysburg invasion. He participated in General Ewells first action at the Wilderness, fought with his brigade at the "Bloody Angle" at Spotsylvania Court House, and was with General Early in his 1864 Valley Campaign. After fighting in the unsuccessful attack on Fort Stedman at Petersburg in 1865, Bradwell was one of the last to evacuate the Rebel defenses. He concluded his valiant service in line of battle at Appomatox Court House.

Book Description Mercer Univ Press. Condition: BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Hardcover - In his introduction to the classic Civil War book Company Aytch, historian Bell I. Wiley makes a pointed observation about soldiers' memoirs, "Most of these have only limited value either as history or literature, but a few stand out as exceptions to the general rule." Fortunately, as readers learn from the pen of Pvt. Isaac Gordon Bradwell, his stirring narrative provides one such exception. The unforgettable events witnessed by an impressionable young Georgian originally found their way into print, piecemeal fashion, courtesy of the Confederate Veteran magazine. Long buried in the pages of this magazine's volumes, Bradwell's engaging and readable story is finally told in its A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Bookshop in business since 1992!.
