201 MAURICE, Major General Sir FREDERICK Statesmen and Soldiers of the Civil War: A Study of the Conduct of War
Boston Little Brown & Co. , 1926 First Edition Hard Cover Fair 
173 pages, 8 plates, cloth, ex-library with usual library markings, considerable shelf wear, text very good. From the preface: These studies of the relations which existed between statesmen and soldiers during the course of a prolonged war were delivered as the Lees-Knowles Lectures for 1925-26 at Trinity College, Cambridge. The idea from which these lectures originated had its germ in a conversation with Lord Kitchener in 1915. ~ My historical studies are therefore frankly and unashamedly objective. I had long been dissatisfied that the judgements of Lord Wolseley and of Colonel F.R. Henderson upon Lincoln's conduct of the war, written by the former on incomplete information, and by the latter in a study of one pat only of the American Civil War, should stand as the British military criticism of a great statesmen. ; Ex-Library

203 McCarthy, Carlton Detailed Minutiae of Soldier Life in the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865 Time-Life Collector's Library of the Civil War
Alexandria, Va, Time-Life 1982 0809442450 / 9780809442454 Leather Very Good with no dust jacket 
[8], 224, [2] pages, illustrations, full black leather, very good. With illustrations by Wm. L. Sheppard. Reprinted from the 1882 edition. From the preface: "An earlier volume in this series was John D. Billings' delightful account of Northern Army life, Hard Tack and Coffee. It is quite appropriate that a comparable study exists for the Southern side in Carlton McCarthy's Detailed Minutiae of Soldier Life in the Army of Northern Virgiia, 1861-1865. ~ As did Billing, McCarthy concentrated on what it was like to be a soldier rather than on describing battles. His discussions are charming discourses on uniforms, camp life, rations and marches. ~ This leather-bound volume, like every book in the Collector's Library of the Civil War, has been reproduced photographically from the original edition. It thus preserves the authenticity of the original, including biographical errors and printing irregularities." ; 224 pages

205 McElroy, John & edited by Roy Meredith This was Andersonville The true story of Andersonville Military Prison as told in the personal recollections of John McElroy, sometime private, Co. L, 16th Illinois Cavalry
New York McDowell, Obolensky 1957 Hardcover Very Good in Fair dust jacket 
355 pages, illustrations, pictorial boards, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. From Kirkus Reviews: "To anyone who has read MacKinlay Kantor's Andersonville much of the material relating to that horror of the Civil War will be familiar for McElroy's diary was one of Kantor's basic sources. It is horridly fascinating to get the material first hand in this excellent editing of the original. While McElroy, understandably enough, has unrelieved scorn for everything Confederate (and plenty of criticism for the powers in Washington that permitted Andersonville to happen) , one must read this as a personal, and wholly unrelieved, record. Possibly the only touch of humanity lies in the friendships that knit men together, that made sacrifice and endurance conceivable, that helped sustain life. John McElroy was among those who were shipped to Savannah at the threat of Sherman's approach; shipped back again to Millen; later to Florence, so that he and his buddy experienced the horrors of each of the worst of the Confederacy's prison stockades, knew through intimate relationship the key personalities that perpetrated those horrors. McElroy was a journalist. His gift for reporting is undimmed by the years. Roy Maredith says he has left out some of the most horrible details; what he has left in makes Dachau and Belsen credible. As one reads this story, fiction pales beside the facts. In addition to the text of the diary, this includes a selection of the photographs made at the time and the transcript of the Wirtz trial. An important source for students of the Civil War, but one that will raise the hackles of the South." ; 10.60 X 8 X 1.60 inches; 355 pages

While nothing in his earlier life suggested unusual ability, he was greatly successful, to a point where the presidency was almost inevitable. ~ Much has been written about Grant, but no previous book has grasped his personality in a way that explains and resolves the many enigmas of his life.

216 MORGAN, SARAH Sarah Morgan: The Civil War Diary of a Southern Woman.
New York Simon & Schuster 1991 0671785036 / 9780671785031 Soft Cover Very Good 
Edited by Charles East. Originally published under the title The Civil War Diary of Sarah Morgan. 626 pages, 8 plates, wrappers, very good. From the publisher: Born into one of the best families of Baton Rouge, Sarah Morgan was note yet twenty when she began her diary in January 1862, nine months after the start of the Civil War. She was soon to experience a coming-of-age filled with the turmoil and upheaval that devastated the wartime South. She set down the remarkable events of the war in a record that remains one of the most vivid, evocative portrayals in existence of a time and place that today makeup a crucial chapter in our national history. Sarah Morgan herself emerges as one of the most memorable nineteenth-century women in fiction or nonfiction, a young woman of intelligence and fortitude, as well as of high spirits and passion, who questioned the society into which she was born and the meaning of the war for ordinary families like her own and for the divided nation as a whole. Now published in its entirety for the first time, Sarah Morgan's classic account bring the Civil War and the Old South to life with all the freshness and immediacy of great literature.
