The papers of Major General Orlando Bolivar Willcox, one of the most prominent division commanders in the Union army, were recently discovered locked in a trunk in a Washington, D.C., attic, virtually untouched since his death nearly a century ago. Editor Robert Garth Scott has sifted through what is arguably the largest collection of Civil War-related material to surface in fifty years. From his childhood in Detroit through his cadetship at West Point, his service in the Mexican, Seminole, and Civil Wars, and his post-Civil War experiences in the West, Willcox’s story is published here for the first time.

About the Author:

Robert Garth Scott lives in Grand Blanc, Michigan. His past publications include Fallen Leaves: The Civil War Letters of Maj. Henry Livermore Abbott (The Kent State University Press, 1991).

Review:

Forgotten Valor contains the experiences, observations and correspondence of a major military figure who hasn't been heard from previously. That in itself makes the book noteworthy since many modern Civil War books are recycled, reorganized material that has been published before. . . . More that just a Civil War memoir, the book is a biography of a military man who was a witness to much American history of the 19th century. -- The Flint Journal 11/29/99

Forgotten Valor is a masterly piece of editing and compilation. . Willcox as a man of dimension and doubt, aspiration and disappointment participating in an immense chapter of his and his nations history is vivid in the book. . . . In short, Orlando Bolivar Willcox, confined as it were, in an old steamer trunk all these years, emerges as an individual and an admirable one, seriously concerned with his religious faith, his family and friends and his country. . . . It is a pleasure to meet him in these pages. -- Washington Times, 10/30/99
