6 Alexander, Bevin Lost Victories. the Military Genius of Stonewall Jackson.
Henry Holt & Co 1992 0805018301 / 9780805018301 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
350 pages, map, cloth, DJ, very good. Stated first edition. From Library Journal: "A detailed analysis of the battles and correspondence of Stonewall Jackson leads Alexander to conclude that Jackson's strategic overview was superior to that of Robert E. Lee and would have led to fewer Southern casualties and to the possibility (on at least three occasions) of the total destruction of the Northern Army of the Potomac. He views Lee as a conservative, timid, and nearsighted military leader. This is not a comprehensive biography but a "what if" book analyzing the strategic opinions and views of Stonewall Jackson--a smoothly written, well-researched text offering a new perspective on the Civil War's leading tactical genius. Recommended for military collections. "; 9.30 X 6.40 X 1.30 inches; 350 pages

7 Alexander, Edward Porter (Gallagher, Gary W. , editor) Fighting for the Confederacy. the Personal Recollections of General Edward Porter Alexander .
Chapel Hill, The University of North Carolina Press 1989 0807818488 / 9780807818480 Hardcover Very Good in Fair dust jacket 
664 pages, illustrations, maps, cloth, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. From Wikipedia: "Edward Porter Alexander (May 26, 1835 – April 28, 1910) was a military engineer, railroad executive, planter, and author. He served first as an officer in the United States Army and later, during the American Civil War (1861–1865) , in the Confederate Army, rising to the rank of brigadier general. Alexander was the officer in charge of the massive artillery bombardment preceding Pickett's Charge, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg, and is also noted for his early use of signals and observation balloons during combat. After the Civil War, he taught mathematics at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, spent time in Nicaragua, and wrote extensive memoirs and analyses of the war, which have received much praise for their insight and objectivity. His Military Memoirs of a Confederate were published in 1907. An extensive personal account of his military training and his participation in the Civil War was rediscovered long after his death and published in 1989 as Fighting for the Confederacy." From Library Journal: "Georgia native and West Point graduate Alexander was involved in nearly all of the significant battles in the Eastern theater of the Civil War and came into frequent contact with the highest command of the Army of Northern Virginia, including Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and James Longstreet. His perspective on such personalities and on the events unfolding around him is a most valuable one. Alexander's memoirs lay virtually untouched for some eight decades until rescued by Gallagher, who has done a splendid job of editing: unobtrusive; the annotation not merely a rehash of that which can be readily found in other Civil War sources. An excellent index and illustrations and maps from the original manuscript complement the text. Recommended for Civil War and military history collections." ; 9.60 X 6.53 X 1.81 inches; 692 pages

18 BECKETT, IAN F.W. The American Civil War: The War Correspondents
London Grange Books 1993 1840130040 / 9781840130041 Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
198 pages, well illustrated, maps, cloth, dj, very good. Reprint. From the dj: The American Civil War was one of the most significant conflicts of the 19th century. Many books have been written about it, but never before has such a comprehensive narrative account been told by those who witnessed events. The Times Reports were filed by the paper's correspondents - Antonio Gallenga, Francis Lawley, Charles Mackay and W.H. Russell - whose preconceptions and prejudices are clarified in Dr. Beckett's wide-ranging and scholarly introduction. The reports themselves are linked by a commentary that serves to place them in context, embracing not only the battles and campaigns but also the social and political background to the conflict. A further dimension is added by the inclusion of over sixty illustrations, many of them previously unpublished contemporary photographs, and maps showing the eastern and western theaters of war.
