A Victor, Not a Butcher: Ulysses S. Grant's Overlooked Military Genius

Date:
2004
Creator:
Bonekemper, Edward H.
Publisher/Studio:
Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, Inc.

This biography of the Union general compares his record to the records of other generals and especially against that of Robert E. Lee. It is the author's thesis that most of Grant's reputation as a butcher blessed with greater resources and unconcerned for the lives of his men was undeserved and developed after the war. Excellent appendices with casualties incurred during all of Grant's campaigns.

Holtz Mr. Holtz notes that he learned 3 things in reading this book: 1. The devotion of his troops to General Sherman (also exemplified by the fact that my great grand-father named his first son Sherman). 2. The frequency of rations consisting only of hardtack. 3. Union soldiers at times marched without shoes.

Army Of The Potomac: Mcclellan Takes Command

Date:
2004
Creator:
Beatie, Russel H.
Publisher/Studio:
Cambridge, MA: Da Capo Press

This is the second volume in a series whose first volume appeared in 1961 (Road to Manassas: The Growth of Union Command in the Eastern Theater from the Fall of Fort Sumter to the First Battle of Bull Run). The author is a trial attorney in New York City and wrote these books in his spare time. Nonetheless, this book is exhaustively researched and based entirely on primary sources. It attempts to give us a fresh understanding of the leaders of the army and the political forces that shaped their decisions. This volume covers just the six months between the First Bull Run and McClellan's preparations for the Peninsula Campaign. The author believes McClellan "more sinned against than sinning" in a departure from much current historical thought.
