Summary
  • "Edward Guerrant's massive, eloquent journal - twenty-eight manuscript volumes - gathered considerable interest just shortly after the Civil War, among fellow veterans as a reliable source for reconstructing their shared ordeal. In the years to follow, however, the never-published diary gradually slipped from view. Now, thanks to William C. Davis and Meredith L. Swentor, "after a long while" of more than one hundred years, Captain Guerrant's diary is brought to light again in Bluegrass Confederate. For historians as well as acolytes of Civil War memory, the author's scrupulous daily entries will prove valuable indeed."--Jacket
  • "Edward Guerrant, a teacher and habitual diarist, was motivated by love, first of one woman and then another, to record his wartime experiences, beginning January 30, 1862, and ending April 11, 1865. Exceptionally intelligent and well educated, Guerrant spent much of the war attached to the headquarters of Confederate generals Humphrey Marshall, William Preston, George Cosby, and, most notably, John Hunt Morgan. From that vantage, he was able to see the inner workings of campaigns in the little-known Appalachian region of eastern Kentucky, southwestern Virginia, and east Tennessee, where some of the most vicious small-scale fighting occurred
  • He witnessed the controversial massacre of black Federal soldiers at Saltville in October 1864 and assisted Morgan on his famed raids into Kentucky."--Jacket
