About this title

Synopsis:

Named States Rights Gist by his father, the Harvard Law School graduate went on to become a Confederate general despite his lack of formal military training. This biography fills in the outline of Gist that other historians have left incomplete. His brilliant performance in high command led him to become a militia general at the age of twenty-four. He participated in the first shots at Fort Sumter and lead the charge at Franklin, Tennessee, dying gallantly in the process. In the interim, he was a combat leader at First Manassas, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and the Atlanta campaign.

From the Publisher:

"An excellent biography of a lesser-known Confederate general . . . The book gives an interesting overview of how an untrained politician becomes an effective military leader. Recommended for specialized collections of Civil War military history and regional history collections." --Library Journal

"The great strength of Cisco's book is the author's exemplary story-telling abilities. His clear, evocative explanations of the political and social psychology of the antebellum South are superb. Cisco is a major new talent." --Charleston Post and Courier

"Brilliantly researched and movingly written, Cisco's States Rights Gist is a perfect match for the man, who has deserved a good biography and has one at last." --William C. Davis, History Book Club

"Cisco has uncovered all known information about the man and presented it in both readable and reliable fashion." --Richmond News Leader "Walter Brian Cisco has rescued Gist from the obscurity of mid-level command. His solid, well-researched biography tells the story not only of its subject, but also of all the brave young men of the South who went off to war to fight for their beliefs. The story of Gist's personality, dedication, courage and ability is a moving one that brings home the cost of war." --Orlando Sentinel "In the final analysis, Cisco's States Rights Gist is a well-written book about a little-known Civil War general, making it a valuable literary contribution." --Civil War Regiments

"Walter Brian Cisco has revealed the eloquent, brilliant, and respected young Southerner behind the name." --Southern Partisan
