Leaders Of The Lost Cause

Publisher/Studio:
Mechanicsburg, PA: Stackpole Books

Some of the foremost scholars contributed articles on the 8 full generals who led the CSA armies. Each chapter is a short biography and provides the latest views on their contributions (and sometime detriments) to the "Lost Cause". The book provides much information about the interrelationships (mostly through Jefferson Davis and West Point) that brought this group to the fore and also points out that each of these men had married into wealthy Southern, slave-holding families. Almost all had risen to high rank and esteem in the U.S. Army and had exhibited personal bravery in combat.

Chimborazo

Publisher/Studio:
Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press

This fascinating book provides a good overview of the hospital system established by the confederacy and looks in depth at how the biggest hospital in the system (and reputedly the largest in the world) was created and maintained in Richmond, Virginia. Under the guidance of Dr. James Brown McCaw, Chimborazo became the model for other hospitals and innovated (by necessity) in coping with the overwhelming number of casualties that flooded into the Confederacy's capital from the battlefields of Virginia. This book should be of interest for local residents as well as many health care workers who will identify with the problems besetting their forebears and intrigued by the solutions they found.

Description (physical):

200 pages including bibliography, index and notes.
