    Dogwood trees were in full bloom as Union General Frederick Steele led 8,500 soldiers out of comfortable quarters in Little Rock and into the pine and scrub woodlands of southwest Arkansas. Steele's intended target was Shreveport, Louisiana. He planned to join another Union force coming from Fort Smith, bringing his projected complement to 12,500 troops, and then link with another Federal army in Louisiana.

    Brought together for the first time, one of the most important collections of Civil War letters is that of Francis Channing Barlow. A young intellectual from Massachusetts, Barlow was a successful lawyer in New York City and friends with such people as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Winslow Homer's family when he went off to war. Leaving his wife hours after their marriage, Barlow probably never contemplated the conversion he would undergo.Originally commissioned a lieutenant and untrained in military science, he ended the war as one of the North's premier combat generals. Though Barlow entered the service with nascent leadership qualities, he left it with a honed sense of his own authority. More importantly, Barlow had transformed from a contemplative man of society to a vigorous figure engaged with life and politics. Barlow's letters, covering the period from 1861 to 1864, not only provide a rich description of battle experiences, but also offer insight into an intellectual civilian learning the realities of war and the burdens of command.Barlow suffered many privations, including two battlefield wounds and an exhaustive collapse following the death of his wife while she nursed Federal soldiers. Barlow played a critical role in the Peninsula Campaign and in delivering a decisive charge at Antietam, sustaining a grievous wound that ensured his promotion to brigadier general. At Gettysburg - his first battle in command of a division - Barlow deployed his men in an exposed position, a controversial decision that cost him another wound and the defeat of his troops. After he recuperated, Barlow led a division through the 1864 campaign toward Richmond, earning a reputation for being a strict disciplinarian and leading his soldiers in the famous charge against the Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania.

    PRAISE FOR 1858 "Highly recommended-a gripping narrative of the critical year of 1858 and the nation's slide toward disunion and war...Readers seeking to understand how individuals are agents of historical change will find Chadwick's account of the failed leadership of President James Buchanan especially compelling." -G. Kurt Piehler, author of Remembering War the American Way "Chadwick's excellent history shows how the issue of slavery came crashing into the professional, public, and private lives of many Americans...Chadwick offers a fascinating premise: that James Buchanan, far from being a passive spectator, played a major role in the drama of his time. 1858 is a welcome addition to scholarship of the most volatile period of American history." -Frank Cucurullo, Arlington House, The Robert E. Lee Memorial As 1858 dawned, the men who would become the iconic figures of the Civil War had no idea it was about to occur: Jefferson Davis was dying, Robert E. Lee was on the verge of resigning from the military, and William Tecumseh Sherman had been reduced to running a roadside food stand. By the end of 1858, the lives of these men would be forever changed, and the North and South were set on a collision course that would end with the deaths of 630,000 young men. This is the story of seven men on the brink of a war that would transform them into American legends, and the events of the year that set our union on fire.

    1861 is an epic of courage and heroism beyond the battlefields. It reflects the fact of recognition that the 150th anniversary of this defining national drama and trauma is upon us. The book introduces readers to a heretofore little-known cast of Civil War heroes - among them an acrobatic militia colonel, an explorer's wife, an idealistic band of German immigrants, a regiment of New York City firemen, a community of Virginia slaves, and a young college professor who would one day become president. Adam Goodheart takes readers from the corridors of the White House to the slums of Manhattan, from the mouth of the Chesapeake to the deserts of Nevada, from Boston Commons to Alcatraz Island, vividly evoking the Union at this moment of ultimate crisis and decision. Notes, Bibliography, Index. 481p.
