DR. QUINTARD, CHAPLAIN C.S.A. AND SECOND BISHOP OF TENNESSEE; BEING HIS STORY OF THE WAR
Available from more sellers
183pp., plus appendix, mostly uncut. Edited and ‘expanded’ by the Rev. Arthur Howard Noll. Second edition but the rarer of the two, the first being issued in fairly sturdy cloth the year before. Original decorative wraps, a few relatively minor chips to wraps, two chips to spine. A nice clean example of this fragile memoir. This edition is dubbed the ‘Confederate Veteran Edition,’ and was likely sold at reunions. HARWELL, IN TALL COTTON 152: ‘This is a reliable memoir based on Bishop Quintard’s wartime diary.’ COULTER, TRAVELS IN THE CONFEDERATE STATES 387: ‘Although not written until 1896, this book was drawn from the author’s war diary and seems reliable. At the beginning of hostilities he became chaplain of the First Tennessee Regiment and served throughout the war in various units as chaplain and surgeon, being equipped for the latter by a medical degree. He went first to Virginia and was in the Cheat Mountain, West Virginia, campaign. Thereafter he traveled extensively over the Confederacy, frequently going to Richmond, Lynchburg, Winchester, Staunton, and Norfolk. After 1862 his chief activities were with the Army of Tennessee, including Bragg’s campaign into Kentucky in the fall of 1862. He was present at Chickamauga, and later in the fighting north of Atlanta incident to Sherman’s march on that city. He saw service in various parts of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and middle and western Tennessee.’ DORNBUSCH II, 1000. NEVINS I, 150. NICHOLSON p.690. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15413873940
