Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThis reprint edition of Napier Bartlett's 1876 memoir again makes available a valuable resource on Louisiana troops' participation in the Civil War. Bartlett served throughout the war in Louisiana's elite Washington Artillery and fought in many battles in Virginia and the East. He later wrote an engaging account of his experiences, A Soldier's Story of the War, revealing a sensitive man's reaction to all that combat entails. This narrative constitutes a substantial portion of Military Record of Louisiana. The balance of the volume provides much detailed information and official data concerning Louisiana units in the Confederate Army, including muster rolls of the Orleans Guard, the Thirteenth Louisiana Regiment, the Washington Artillery, and Louisiana troops who fought in Virginia, the West, and the Trans-Mississippi. It also lists the casualties of various regiments (so far as was known then) and the cemeteries where they were buried, and includes company journals and personal narratives of prominent Louisiana soldiers. Part memoir, part inventory, Military Record of Louisiana is a storehouse of information for scholars, students, and genealogists alike.
