Synopsis: Traces the history of the brigade and describes each of the major battles in which it played a role
"outstanding scholarship breaking new ground . . . Dr. Tucker has achieved a monumental work. In this book, he has combined battle history with ethnic history; and the study of a military elite with social history from the bottom up . . . The South's Finest is the story of the 8,000 Missourians, mainly Irish, and their growth from farmers into one of the Confederacy's best and most often used combat units. Only about 300 veterans were left in the First Missouri Confederate Brigade by the end of the war so heavily were they engaged. In this book an important component of the Confederacy's war effort in the west finally receives its just recognition."
--Martin K. Gordon, Ph.D.
"He writes so vividly, accurately, and in great detail, in the process of utilizing an awesome amount of sources,many of them unpublished and hitherto unused diaries, letters, and memoirs."
--Albert Castel, Ph.D.
"White Mane Publishing would like to nominate Phillip Thomas Tucker's The South's Finest: The First Missouri Confederate Brigade from Pea Ridge to Vicksburg for the Lincoln Prize. As outstanding scholarship breaking new ground, The South's Finest qualifies for your consideration."
--White Mane Publishing Company
"Resting in relative obscurity, the First Missouri Confederate Brigade had a combat record second to none among all the Confederate and Union brigades . .. He has drawn on unpublished letters, diaries, and journals in building his portrayal of the transformation of raw troops into veterans, outnumbered but never outfought. I highly recommend this text."
--Sergeant Kirkland's Museum
"Dr. Tucker has rescued the 1st Missouri Brigade from relative obscurity . . . Dr. Tucker researched the brigade for 20 years, and the depth of his sources shows . . . the depth of research and the unique photographs make this a valuable addition to any library on the Civil War in the West."
--Blue and Gray Magazine
