Fallen guidon: the forgotten saga of General Jo Shelby's Confederate command, the brigade that never surrendered, and its expedition to Mexico by Edwin Adams Davis( Book )
1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Although Robert E. Lee, surrendered at Appomattox Court House in April, 1865, some Confederates refused to abandon their cause. Fallen Guidon, originally published in 1962 by Jack Rittenhouse's Stagecoach Press, described the adventures of a Confederate brigade that, rather than surrender, decided to transplant its vision of Southern Empire in the troubled soils of Mexico. General Jo Shelby had led the Missouri Cavalry Division through numerous battles in the Trans-Mississippi theater. "We will stand together, we will keep our organization, our arms, our discipline, our hatred of oppression." He planned to march his brigade to Mexico and fight alongside the guerrillas against Emperor Maximilian's French army of occupation. They would come to Mexico's aid and, at the same time, save their honor and perhaps gain riches in a new land. Shelby and his men marched through Texas, burying their Confederated battle flag in the murky waters of the Rio Grande. But the men did not want to fight Maximilian's French soldiers. Identifying themselves as "imperialists," they instead fought the opposition Juaristas, spilling blood from Piedras Negras to Mexico City. This popularly written history, based on archival sources and the reminiscences of Shelby's adjunct, brings vividly to life a little-remembered episode of the Civil War period and of American incursions in Mexico -- Back cover
