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.
