Major General William S. Rosecrans and the transformation of the staff of the Army of the Cumberland : a case study by Robert J Dalessandro ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This SRP will discuss the transformation and creation of the staff of the Army of the Cumberland under the tenure of Major General William S. Rosecrans. The study will suggest that the staff transformation under MG Rosecrans created one of the first truly modern staffs. This SRP will serve as a case study, illustrating how one commander used his vision of the future to overcome obstacles present in his theater of operations. Additionally, the study will show that after the removal of William S. Rosecrans as Commander of the Army of the Cumberland, the staff infrastructure he envisioned later enabled Sherman to successfully conduct his famous Atlanta Campaign and the subsequent March to the Sea

Morale in the Army of the Cumberland during the Tullahoma and Chickamauga campaigns by Robert J Dalessandro ( )
in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study examines insights into the state of morale of the Army of the Cumberland during the period of the Tullahoma and Chickamauga campaigns, covering the period from June through September 1863. The thesis focused on the organization and leadership of the Army of the Cumberland. It then examined morale as the whole of diverse factors, including national and individual factors. National and Individual factors were generally out of control of the army leadership. They included a soldiers' motivation for joining the army, has views toward southern sympathizers at home, the impact of John Morgan's Ohio Raid, soldier views on conscription, and effects of the progress of the war on morale. Individual factors comprised concerns for home, family, business, and religion. The study then examined morale factors the army could control. It explored army life, attitude toward leadership, level of discipline, how the army leadership cared for soldiers, and the impact of mail on soldier morale. The thesis concludes that the Army of the Cumberland was a well lead organization. Consequently, the state of the morale of the army was high throughout the Tullahoma campaign and was not significantly diminished as a result of the defeat at Chickamauga. The thesis further concluded, that soldier conference in Major General William S. Rosecrans remained high throughout the period of the study. Confidence in many corps and some division level commanders did, however, suffer as a result of the Chickamauga defeat. Additionally, the thesis concluded that Major General Rosecrans had been undermined from within his own headquarters – ultimately leading to his relief

My ambivalent relationship with Captain Pratt by Robert M Utley ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
General Richard Henry Pratt, best known as the founder and longtime superintendent of the influential Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania, profoundly shaped Indian education and federal Indian policy at the turn of the twentieth century. Pratt's long and active military career included eight years of service as an army field officer on the western frontier. During that time he participated in some of the signal conflicts with Indians of the southern plains, including the Washita campaign of 1868-1869 and the Red River War of 1874-1875. He then served as jailor for many of the Indians who surrendered. His experiences led him to dedicate himself to Indian education, and from 1879 to 1904, still on active military duty, he directed the Carlisle school, believing that the only way to save Indians from extinction was to remove Indian youth to nonreservation settings and there inculcate in them what he considered civilized ways. Robert M. Utley edited Pratt's memoirs, and they offer insight into and understanding of what are now highly controversial turn-of-the-century Indian education policies. This is a personal account of Utley's experience with Pratt over a long professional career. It leads from his first book, Last Days of the Sioux Nation (1963) through his work editing Pratt's memoirs and includes research over many years touching on Indian policy and Pratt's role in it. It features some contrasting personal interpretations of the man

Lincoln and the problems of the Union strategy by James M McPherson ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
As commander in chief, Lincoln performed or oversaw five functions, in diminishing order of direct activity: policy; national strategy, military strategy, operations, and (on one notable occasion) tactics. The lecture will focus on Lincoln's role in formulating policy, fashioning a national strategy, and overseeing military strategy, with several examples. The president's difficulties with commanders of the Army of the Potomac will be contrasted with his warm relationship with General Ulysses S. Grant. By 1864 Lincoln had commanders in place who agreed with his strategy of crippling enemy armies and destroying enemy resources as the only way to win the war
