Book Description The University of North Carolina Press, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Even before the end of the Civil War Colonel John Pelham had become a legendary figure of the Confederacy. General Lee called him the gallant Pelham, and on seeing the young artillerist employ but a single gun to hold up the advance of three Union divisions and over a hundred guns at Fredericksberg, he exclaimed: It is glorious to see such courage in one so young. Stonewall Jackson, who relied implicitly on Pelham in tight situations said: It is really extraordinary to find such nerve and genius in a mere boy. With a Pelham on each flank I believe I could whip the world. Jeb Stuart, the dashing cavalry chief, claimed that John Pelham exhibited a skill and courage which I have never seen surpassed. I loved him as a brother. Major John Esten Cooke, a fellow-officer and tent-mate, wrote: He is the bravest human being I ever saw in my life. And one of Pelham s veteran gunners asserted: We knew him -- we trusted him -- we would have followed him anywhere, and did. Shortly after the outbreak of hostilities in the spring of 1861, Cadet Pelham slipped away from West Point to join the Confederacy. Following the fierce Battle of First Manassas, in which he fought side-by-side with Stonewall Jackson, Pelham was assigned to Jeb Stuart s command with orders to organize the Stuart Horse Artillery. This mounted unit -- dashing from action to action on the battlefield -- provided General Lee s army with invaluable mobile firepower which saved many desperate situations. In over sixty battles Pelham s blazing guns saw furious action against Union infantry, cavalry, artillery, gunboats and even locomotives. Although he fought against tremendous odds, Pelham never lost an artillery duel or a single gun! Colonel Pelham was an outstanding figure on the battlefield and off. The modest, boyish-looking commander of the Horse Artillery was as calm and popular with his gunners under fire as he was with beautiful Southern belles in the ballroom. This action-packed book fully describes the incredible feats of the adventurous, romantic artillery genius of the Confederacy. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780807845493
