About this Item

ANDERSON, Ephraim McD. Memoirs: Historical and Personal; Including the Campaigns of the First Missouri Confederate Brigade. Saint Louis: Times Printing Co., 1868. 1st ed. 436,[ii]. Portrait frontis., portraits, plates. Orig. blindstamped cloth. Rebacked part of original spine laid down, light scattered foxing, else very good. HOWES A-227, "aa." Dornbusch II, 2377. "One of the better Confederate narratives; written by an upper-class Southerner and strongly revealing for social conditions in the Confederacy" Nevins I, p.51. "This is a well-written, even-tempered, observant account of four years' service. Anderson, a resident of Missouri, was closely related to the famous McDowell and Shelby families of Kentucky and, characteristic of the upper class of the South, found relatives in almost every state he visited. He noted not only the social conditions among the planter class, who seemed never to let the war interfere with the social activities of the feminine set, but he also observed with much interest the natural scenery, the character of the towns, and, of course, the ravages of war and the corpse-strewn battlefields. This is among the best of all accounts relating to the South during the war" Coulter 7. Bookseller Inventory # 68113
