A rebel's recollections by George Cary Eggleston( Book )

George Cary Eggleston was born in 1839 in Vevay, Indiana. In 1856, he inherited his mother's family plantation in Amelia County, Virginia and spent nine years there. He attended Richmond College and practiced law until the outbreak of the Civil War. Although Eggleston argued against secession, once Virginia had voted to secede, he pledged his loyalty to the Confederacy. He served with the Army of Northern Virginia, first under General J. E. B. Stuart, and later under General Fitzhugh Lee. After the war, Eggleston moved to Illinois and worked for a banking and steam boating company. He married Marion Craggs in 1868. In 1870, he joined his brother in New York and began a new career as a reporter. Eggleston later served in several editorial positions and wrote freelance articles for many periodicals. In his later years, he turned his attention to writing fiction, history and memoirs. Eggleston's second book, A Rebel's Recollections (1874), offered a Southerner's perspective on the recently concluded Civil War. By the time he wrote this personal history, Eggleston was living in New York and had little interest in promoting further cultural conflict between Southerners and Northerners. Each chapter of the book treats one aspect of life during the war. He discusses the debate about secession in Virginia, the young men who made up the army, the role of Southern women during the conflict, the Confederate army generals, and the end of the war

William "Red Eagle" Weatherford was a Creek (Muscogee) Native American who led the Creek War offensive against the United States.

His "war name" was Hopnicafutsahia, or "Truth Teller," and was commonly referred to as Lamochattee, or "Red Eagle," by other Creeks.

BCR's Shelf2Life American Civil War Collection is a unique and exciting collection of pre-1923 titles focusing on the American Civil War and the people and events surrounding it. From memoirs and biographies of notable military figures to firsthand accounts of famous battles and in-depth discussions of slavery, this collection is a remarkable opportunity for scholars and historians to rediscover the experience and impact of the Civil War. The volumes contained in the collection were all written within 60 years of the end of the war, which means that most authors had living memory of it and were facing the effects of the war while writing. These firsthand accounts allow the modern reader to more fully understand the culture of both the Union and Confederacy, the politics that governed the escalation and end of the war, the personal experience of life during the Civil War, and the most difficult and polarizing question in the history of the United States: slavery. The American Civil War Collection allows new readers access to the contemporary arguments and accounts surrounding the war, and is a vital new tool in understanding this important and pivotal chapter in American history
