Description
In 1883, a series of articles on some great battles of the Civil War were written by generals, Union and Confederate, who had commanded the battles two decades before. In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, here are the most enticing entries. Hearts Touched by Fire offers stunning accounts of the Civil War's great battles written by the men who planned, fought, and witnessed them, from leaders such as General Ulysses S. Grant, General George McClellan, and Confederate Captain Clement Sulivane to men of lesser rank. This collection also features new year-by-year introductions by esteemed historians, including James M. McPherson, Craig L. Symonds, and James I. Robertson, Jr., who cast wise modern eyes on the cataclysm that changed America and that would go down as the bloodiest conflict in our nation's history. No one interested in our country's past will want to be without this collection of the most popular and influential first-person Civil War memoirs ever published.
