Love and War: The Civil War Letters and Medicinal Book of Augustus V. Ball is not a typical Civil War letter collection. Ball's circumstances and experiences allowed him to glimpse the war through two sets of eyes, that of a loving husband, and of an increasingly disillusioned physician. The inclusion of Ball's medicinal recipe book is the first of its kind to appear in print completely annotated. Readers will find themselves not only sympathetic to the struggles of one newlywed couple, but educated about the medical and herbal lore of that era. During the war, Ball and his wife, Argent, managed to stay in contact, not only with each other, but with their various friends and family throughout the South. Ball's letters home give an account of one man's experiences in the Trans-Mississippi Theater of the Civil War with the Twenty-third Texas Cavalry, and later with McMahan's Light Artillery Battery. The mail he and his wife received from others a cross-section of the Southern experience in general.

From the Author:

A fascinating set of letters between a husband and wife who are faced with the challenges of the Civil War and separation in the Trans-Mississippi Theatre. - Donald S. Frazier

To me, what was most important is the letters showed Gus's love of God and love of his family, especially of his wife. Gus was very family-oriented. - Anne Ball Ryals

From the Back Cover:

 

Blood and Treasure: Confederate Empire in the Southwest (College Station: Texas A&M University Press, 1995). This award-winning book explains the motivations behind the Confederate campaign in New Mexico and Arizona, as well as the conduct of the offensive and the causes of its catastrophic failure. An informative and entertaining prequel to Fire in the Cane FieldFire in the Cane Field: The Federal invasion of Louisiana and Texas, January 1861-January 1863 (Buffalo Gap, Texas: State House Press, 2009). Beginning with the spasms of secession in the Pelican State, Donald S. Frazier weaves a stirring tale of bravado, reaction, and war as he describes the consequences of disunion for the hapless citizens of Louisiana. Winner of the 2010 Daniel M. & Marilyn W. Laney Prize, Fire in the Cane Field is the initial narrative in the Louisiana Quadrille series. Thunder Across the Swamp: The Fight for the Lower Mississippi, February-May 1863 (Buffalo Gap, Texas: State House Press, 2011). The next installment in the Louisiana Quadrille series is a detailed narrative of the Federal land and naval raid up Bayou Teche and the contest for the west bank of the Mississippi. One of the great untold stories of the sieges of Vicksburg and Port Hudson.
