Overview

Mary Johnston's Cease Firing concludes the sweeping narrative of the Civil War begun in The Long Roll, also available from Johns Hopkins. Cease Firing continues the story of Richard Cleave of Virginia, Confederate artillery commander, following him as the war effort of the Confederacy begins to falter. Also featured prominently is the Confederate commander General Joseph E. Johnston, the author's own grandfather. From the siege of Vicksburg, through the battles of Gettysburg, Chickamauga, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania, to the surrender at Appomattox, Johnston tells an epic story of the war while giving that terrible conflict a human scale. Using a variety of narrative voices to tell her tale, many drawn from actual memoirs and transcripts, Johnston produces skilled prose to evoke the emotions felt on both sides as the tide of victory turned against the Confederacy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Written back-to-back in 1911 and 1912...these were considered the finest fictionalization[s] of the Civil War up to that time. The story follows Confederate artillery commander Richard Cleave through the war's notable battles. To achieve an authentic flavor, Johnston based many of her characters on actual soldiers, including her grandfather, Gen. Joseph Johnston, and some of her material is drawn from their memoirs.

N.Y. Times
“Romances of the Civil War we have ad nauseum; but the war was no romance. In Cease Firing... we have the raw war itself.”
William and Mary College
“[It] is more of a history than a novel. But it is a history in which not only the facts, but the emotions and desires of a great people are told.”
