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.

78 pages, illustrations, diagrams, pictorial wrappers, very good. Photographs by John R Green. Limited first edition, #228 of 500, initialed by author on title page.

These badges, regarded by the northern soldier among his most treasured possessions, represented a lasting comradeship and pride he held through his unit and his brothers at arms. ~ Although widely used during the Civil War, corps badges are extremely scarce today. This book is intended to give the young student and collector a better idea of how these badges looked, how they were adopted, and what gives them a permanent place in the history of the American fighting man."

219 Nolan, Alan T. Lee Considered. General Robert E. Lee and Civil War History.
Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina Press 1991 0807819565 / 9780807819562 Hard Cover Very Good 
231 pages, frontispiece (portrait) , cloth, very good. From Library Journal: "Marching in the tracks of such historians as Bruce Catton, Thomas Connelly, and T. Harry Williams, Nolan tries to unhorse the mythic Lee. In pointing out the contradictions between the legend and the man, Nolan shows that Lee the slaveholder was not antislavery, that the reluctant secessionist endorsed Southern independence, that the general lost the war by his repeated offensive thrusts and provincial vision--and more. Lawyer Nolan's brief challenges all the commonplaces by insisting that we look at the record rather than the legend in viewing the man, and through him, the war itself. Nolan's debunking is less original than he claims, and his own reading of Lee is somewhat idiosyncratic. But he makes a forceful case for rethinking Lee and all the myths his memory has draped over the Lost Cause. A provocative book, highly recommended for university and major public libraries.
