John Michael Priest, a high-school teacher in Washington County, Maryland, has written or edited 11 Civil War history books since 1989. He has carried his obsession for the Civil War into the classroom where his students have researched and edited two sets of diaries and memoirs. Acclaimed by many as the soldiers’ historian and by some as a renegade revisionist, he offers a balanced, nonpartisan account of combat as the participants experienced it.About the Author:
