Chickamauga: bloody battle in the West by Glenn Tucker( Book )

24 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two and a half months after the Confederate Army's drive into Union territory had been checked by the Federals at Gettysburg, the two armies met near Chattanooga, Tennessee, to dispute control of the west. Here they locked in the bloody battle of Chickamauga, one of the most hotly contested engagements of American history, and one of the most extraordinary. For two days -September 19 and 20, 1863 - 125,000 men struggled for the prize city of Chattanooga in terrain more like a jungle than a battlefield. All regarded the battle as decisive. On its outcome depended, for the South, the fate of Atlanta and all Georgia. For the North, it promised the one opportunity to cut the Confederacy through the middle and possibly end the war before Christmas. For the courage they displayed, these men surpassed any in the wars of western civilization. It was, perhaps above all else from the strategist's point of view, a battle of strong personalities. Leading the Federals was William Starke Rosecrans, of German ancestry, hot-tempered and sometimes vacillating. Opposed to him was the hard-fighting, brave and resourceful Braxton Bragg, a martinet who could be slow moving and careless in supervising the execution of his orders. Possibly most outstanding of all was the Union General George Henry Thomas, whose remarkable courage and tactical skill saved his side from overwhelming defeat and earned him the sobriquet of "Rock of Chickamauga."

Tecumseh; vision of glory by Glenn Tucker( Book )

13 editions published between 1956 and 2015 in English and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years just preceding the War of 1812 one man, an Indian, dominated the American frontier-Tecumseh. He emerges here as a vivid, splendid character, a man of unusual talents and noble aims, whereas in much previous history and biography he has been depicted as a baffling, sinister, often bloody figure-a man of inscrutable motives whose scheming for a time actually threatened to delay the settlement of the Northwest. Tecumseh's great oratorical powers, his statesmanship, his military acumen, his personal magnetism won him the passionate loyalty of his Indians and the admiration of even his white enemies. In nobility of character, in leadership and in devotion to a lost cause he suggests points of comparison with Robert E. Lee. The need for this book is indicated by the fact that until its publication the standard biography has continued to be Benjamin Drake's book first published in 1841 and ranks as a collectors' item. Tecumseh's great vision was a confederation of all the Indian tribes to check the encroachment of the whites on the Indian lands. His journeys took him from the Mohawk River in the east to the Arkansas in the west, from Lake Superior to the Gulf of Mexico. Mr. Tucker offers proof that the British in Canada did not push Tecumseh on war with the United States-as historians have claimed-but on the contrary Tecumseh urged the British to declare war. The high point of Tecumseh's point probably came when with Major General Brook he captured Detroit and made a sizeable American army to surrender. Only a few months later his forces, outnumbered and almost unsupported by their brave and futile stand on the Thames River. Tecumseh was killed, and his dream of a red empire broken. So ended the mighty vision and the greatest of the great chiefs

Zeb Vance: champion of personal freedom by Glenn Tucker( Book )

6 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rugged, dynamic, controversial -- Zebulon Baird Vance was one of the dominant personalities of the South for nearly half a century. Here is the first full-scale biography of this important figure. This colorful and carefully researched study centers on Vance's dedication to democratic institutions during the Civil War. He maintained unyieldingly -- alone of all the governors, North and South -- the writ of habeas corpus in its full vigor, yet it was the Governor's state, North Carolina, which made the greatest contribution in men and spirit to the Southern cause. As a staunch unionist before the war, Vance was dedicated to individual liberty. Under the Confederacy, where he was called 'the war governor of the South', he battled for personal rights. Again, in the reunited nation, he was a powerful debater in the Senate during the 1880s and 1890s"--Jacket

Chattanooga! ... where soldiers stole the battle from the generals. The final great battle of 1863, the one that took Bragg out of the field at last, and sent Grant on to Virginia in command of the Union Army. For the Federals it was a great victory over hunger, siege, and low morale: for the tired Confederates it was the end of a bad year in the West, cheered only momentarily by the brief glory of Chickamauga, Chattanooga opened the way for worse days yet to come, for the long retreat, and for Sherman
