Few 19th-century Americans were as adventurous as Henry Baxter. Best known for his Civil War exploits--from leading the 7th Michigan Volunteer Infantry across the Rappahannock River at Fredericksburg in the first daylight amphibious assault in American history, to his defense of the Union line on day one of Gettysburg--he accomplished these despite having no prewar military training. His heroism and leadership propelled him from officer of volunteers to major general in the Army of the Potomac.

A New York emigrant from a prominent family, Baxter was involved in developing Michigan's political, business and educational foundations. He excelled at enterprise, leading a group of adventurers to California during the Gold Rush, co-founding what would become the Republican Party and eventually becoming President Grant's diplomat to Honduras during one of the most dynamic periods of Central American history.

About the Author:

Jay C. Martin is an associate professor of history and director of museum studies at Central Michigan University. He has published articles in the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, the International Journal of Maritime History, and The Public Historian. He lives in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

Review:

"A truly extraordinary biography...a work of impressive scholarship and a major contribution to the growing library of American Civil War literature"--Midwest Book Review; "Martin has given us more than a Civil War book; he has elucidated how individuals responded to the cultural imperatives of their times"--The Journal of Southern History.
