Overview

"A well researched history."
-Blue & Gray Magazine

"Comes alive with personal histories of soldiers and officers."
-Confederate Veteran

"A fitting tribute to the brave men . . . who served in the brigade."
-Civil War Courier

In the archives of the hallowed battlefield at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, information points to an overlooked and understudied group of Tennessee Civil War soldiers. Leaving their families in Middle Tennessee, the soldiers of the Tennessee Brigade achieved fame, served the Confederacy, and suffered tremendous casualties hundreds of miles from their homes. The stories are numerous, many surreal, but the contributions of the brave men of the Tennessee Brigade are certain.
The Tennessee Brigade participated in the major Civil War battles of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. With regiments raised before Tennessee's secession, the brigade saw action at Seven Pines, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Spotsylvania. It suffered the first Confederate casualty at Gettysburg and was the guiding unit during the third day's assault on the Union position. The brigade survived Petersburg's trenches only to surrender a fraction of its once-mighty ranks at Appomattox. This book thoroughly examines these exploits, using extensive research, first-person accounts, and a previously unpublished diary. Maps by Dave Roth of Blue & Gray Magazine and numerous photographs enhance the text.
Randy Bishop is a longtime student of the American Civil War and a collector of Civil War relics. A resident of Middleton, Tennessee, he is a history teacher at Middleton High School and holds graduate degrees in education and history from the University of Memphis. In addition to earning such accolades as the Teacher of the Year Award, which he has received six times, and recognition in Who's Who Among America's Teachers, Bishop wrote Pelican's Tennessee's Civil War Battlefields: A Guide to Their History and Preservation.

    The Tennessee Brigade by Randy Bishop

    A fine book: perhaps the best of the many Civil War histories I have read. Exhaustively researched and brilliantly written. Due to extensive use of letters, diaries, and reminiscenses of Tennessee Brigade soldiers, it ranks up there with Sam Watkins''Co. Aytch'. Organized in 1861, the Tennessee Brigade soon became a key element in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Through those grueling years it fought in battle after battle. By the surrender at Appomattox the brigade had been almost decimated. This is a book to be read and reread.
