Pickett's charge in history and memory by Carol Reardon( Book )

The Gettysburg campaign : June--July 1863 by Carol Reardon( Book )
3 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 431 libraries worldwide
"The Battle of Gettysburg attained a special aura that has distinguished it ever since. Boston journalist Charles Carleton Coffin dubbed it "the high water mark" of the rebellion, while others described it as the "turning point of the war." But it was President Lincoln who most eloquently expressed Gettysburg's significance. On 19 November 1863, Lincoln delivered "a few appropriate remarks" at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery that became known as the Gettysburg Address: "We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." --p. 61

With a sword in one hand & Jomini in the other : the problem of military thought in the Civil War north by Carol Reardon( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 217 libraries worldwide
"Reardon examines the great profusion of new or newly translated military texts of the Civil War years ... and draws as well on the view of the soldiers and civilians who turned to them in the search for a winning strategy. In examining how debates over principles of military thought entered into the question of qualifications of officers entrusted to command the armies of Northern citizen-soldiers, she explores the limitations of nineteenth-century military thought in dealing with the human elements of combat"--Jacket
Ulysses S. Grant : and the Battle of the Wilderness ( visu )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
"At the beginning of the Civil War, Ulysses S. Grant worked in a store. Within 4 years he commanded the Union Armies and within 8 he was President of the United States. The Battle of the Wilderness was an indecisive, bloody tangle in a dense forest. Though a tactical stalemate, it was a vital strategic victory--one which led to the defeat of the Confederacy."

The papers of Henry Clay. January 1, 1844-June 29, 1852 by Henry Clay( Book )
8 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The culminating volume in The Papers of Henry Clay begins in 1844, the year when Clay came within a hair's breadth of achieving his lifelong goal-the presidency of the United States. Volume 10 of Clay's papers, then, more than any other, reveals the Great Compromiser as a major player on the national political stage. Here are both the peak of his career and the inevitable decline.On a tour through the southern states in the spring of 1844, Clay seemed certain of gaining the Whig nomination and the national election, until a series of highly publicized letters opposing the annexation of Texas cost him crucial support in both South and North. In addition to the Texas issue, the bitter election was marked by a revival of charges of a corrupt bargain, the rise of nativism, the influence of abolitionism, and voter fraud. Democrat James K. Polk defeated Clay by a mere 38,000 popular votes, partly because of illegal ballots cast in New York City.Speaking out against the Mexican War, in which his favorite son was a casualty, the Kentuckian announced his willingness to accept the 1848 Whig nomination. But some of his closest political friends, including many Kentucky Whig leaders, believed he was unelectable and successfully supported war hero Zachary Taylor.The disconsolate Clay felt his public career was finally finished. Yet when a crisis erupted over the extension of slavery into the territories acquired from Mexico, he answered the call and returned to the United States Senate. There he introduced a series of resolutions that ultimately passed as the Compromise of 1850, the most famous of his three compromises. Clay's last years were troubled ones personally, yet he remained in the Senate until his death in 1852, continuing to warn against sectional extremism and to stress the importance of the Union-messages that went unheeded as the nation Clay had

Telling the Army story : voices of Gettysburg's slain by Carol Reardon( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
At the end of three days of bloody fighting around the town of Gettysburg on July 1-3, 1863, over 7,000 soldiers from the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia lay dead upon the battlefield. Over the next six months, several thousand more died of their wounds, sealing their commitment to their respective causes with lives. But death did not silence their voices. Their surgeons, their comrades-in-arms, and their families mourning them in cities and towns stretching from the coasts of Maine to the hill country of Texas picked up the soldiers' stories and shared their lessons with us. Some of the most profound of those voices emerge from the pension applications submitted by new widows and newly-appointed guardians of fatherless children, by bereaved mothers and even -- on occasion -- by their fathers. The families of Confederate dead could submit claims to collect a one-time payment of all pay and allotments still due their fallen soldier. In the North, the Congress passed legislation in July 1862 to establish a pension system for the support of the survivors of fallen Union soldiers, but it could not have foreseen the complications and challenges each individual case might present for its highly legalistic administrative processes for the awarding of a monthly support check usually amounting to $8 for the families of enlisted men. The families and friends of the Gettysburg slain tell yet one more important -- and underappreciated -- part of the Army Story
