Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack - 224 battle plans, campaign maps and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities.
One of the shining lights of the Confederate war effort Nathan Bedford Forrest, was an iconoclast; militarily untrained at the outbreak of the Civil War he was to wield his cavalry command with innovative doctrines, effective strategies that confounded many Union commanders. Central to his success was his hard riding mounted artillery which provided him with a heavy punch to add to his mobility.
Captain John Morton rose to the post of Forrest's chief of artillery in 1864 after much service since joining the grey ranks in 1861. Many years after the end of his military service he set out to write a history of the unit he commanded, this volume is comprehensive, readable and very well-written. He charts all of the engagements and actions in which he and his men fought with detail and verve; however, the greatest insights are into the daily life of the Confederate raiders, their morale and anecdotes of his leader and his style of command.
A Classic Confederate history.
