Summary
The first four volumes of Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, published in the late nineteenth century, became the best selling and most frequently cited works ever published on the Civil War. Volume 5, assembled by the acclaimed military historian Peter Cozzens, carries on the tradition of its namesake, offering a dazzling collection of articles written by military and civilian leaders, North and South, on a broad array of war-related topics. This massive new collection of primary documents provides a wealth of fresh material on the major events, key personalities, and undying controversies of the war, often from opposing points of view. Featured articles include General Grant on the second battle of Bull Run, General Beauregard on the Shiloh campaign, General Sherman on the conference at City Point, and Joshua Chamberlain on the Fredericksburg campaign. President Hays writes on Grant and Sherman in 1864, General Johnson on negotiations with Sherman, and General E. P. Alexander on Lee at Appomattox. Other pieces include General Winfield S. Hancock's recollections of Gettysburg, an interview with General Longstreet by Henry W. Grady, and an account of life in the White House with Lincoln by John Hay. The articles in this superlative compilation appeared in the decades following the war, some in such well-known magazines as Century, Harper's, Hearst's, and McClure's, others in Ohio Soldier, the Magazine of American History, and similar publications largely unknown to modern readers. Most of the articles were published subsequent to the completion of the four volumes of the series, and only a fraction of them ever appeared in book form. Presented here with dozens of maps and more than one hundred illustrations, these invaluable documents bring vividly to life the wartime experiences of the men who determined the course of the nation
