A Confederate soldier shares his observations of the Civil War from the Battle of Shiloh to Sherman's March to the Sea
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Though memoirs of the Civil War abound, Jackman's diary is the only surviving record of a soldier in the fascinating, albeit troubled, First Kentucky Regiment, or "Orphan Brigade." A perceptive diarist, Jackman was involved in action from Shiloh to Vicksburg, from Baton Rouge through all major battles in Tennessee; he fought against Sherman in the March to the Sea and observed the last meeting of the fleeing Confederate cabinet in Washington, Georgia. Insightful, candid, and entertaining, Jackman's words provide an unusually detailed glimpse of life behind the lines in the Army of Tennessee, capturing the essence of common soldiering in the Rebel forces. Davis's introduction is solid and his editing unobtrusive. Recommended for libraries with extensive Civil War holdings and for interested Civil War buffs.
