Booknews
Garrison (former dean, Emory U., and president of McKendree College) presents about 100 true stories of friendly fire (i.e. comrades killing comrades) in the Civil War. Revealing causes such as mistaken uniforms, unknown passwords, defective ammunition, and deliberate fire upon comrades, he strips away the romanticism of the Civil War through stories of deadly incidents that occurred before the First Battle of Bull Run in July 1891 and continued through the end of the war and the capture of the Confederacy's fugitive president, Jefferson Davis.
