He has left us, in another book, a memorable account from the sharp end of those momentous events...

Overview

An account of two of the great battles of the Civil War

The author of this book was present at-indeed he was literally the target of-the firing of the first hostile shots of the American Civil War. As a regular U. S. Army officer of artillery he was stationed at Forts Moultrie and Sumter as the political disputes between the Northern and Southern states exploded into armed conflict. He has left us, in another book, a memorable account from the sharp end of those momentous events which is also available from Leonaur. Doubleday was in an ideal position to view the events described in this book. He knew President Lincoln and leading members of the government, but also as a career soldier he personally knew the principal military figures on both sides of battlefield. Doubleday has written an absorbing account of the campaign from a position of authority and experience which is an essential source work for anyone interested in the period. Available in soft cover and cloth bound hard cover with dust jacket, head and tail bands and gold foil embossed spine lettering.

    Great first-hand account of the battles

    I love first-person accounts of Civil War battles, because you can get in-depth into one person's perspective rather than a broad overview written by a historian. I liked the fact that Doubleday didn't pull any punches either - he let you know where he thought certain things went wrong and who he thought was responsible.

    The difficult thing with first-person accounts like this is that they are always so detailed in terms of the alignment of regiments, brigades, corps, etc. and they almost always lack adequate maps, so unless you have an intimate knowledge of the battlefield they are talking about, it can be very difficult to follow what happened. I've been to Gettysburg a lot (actually lived there for a time), so I have a pretty good feel for the landscape, but even then it was hard to keep up with some of the movements described in the book. I'm really looking forward to going back to the battlefield and taking this book with me and reading parts of it while I'm standing in the field so I can visualize what happened. (The book is pretty compact, so that's good too cause it won't be a pain to lug around.) I'm really looking forward to heading out to McPherson's Ridge and Seminary Ridge and taking another look at the first day's battle. That's where Doubleday was heavily involved and his descriptions of what took place are really good.
