of General Edward Porter Alexander

Autographed by Gary W. Gallagher


Edited by Gary W. Gallagher. The University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, N.C., 1989. Autographed by Gary W. Gallagher on the title page. 664 pages, illustrated, index, hard cover with dust jacket. An excellent book from one of the Confederacy's forgotten heroes.

The publication of General Edward Porter Alexander's private memoir, Fighting for the Confederacy, is a significant development in the field of Civil War military studies. It is one of the richest personal accounts in all of the vast literature on the war. Alexander, a native of Georgia and a West Point graduate who rose to the rank of brigadier general, was involved in nearly all of the great battles of the East, from Manassas through Appomattox. His duties as an engineer, artillerist, and staff officer brought him into frequent contact with most of the high command of the Army of Northern Virginia, including Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and James Longstreet. His narrative is complete with superb insights into the campaigns in which he participated and is filled with utterly candid appraisals of leaders on both sides.

The entire reminiscence is studded with memorable scenes: Alexander riding through the smouldering Wilderness with J.E.B. Stuart just a week before the latter fell mortally wounded at Yellow Tavern; Lee erupting in anger at the incompetence of a junior officer; Alexander changing Lee's artillery dispositions at Fredericksburg and teasing Lee about it after the battle; and Lee firmly rejecting advice to carry on a guerrilla campaign rather than surrender at Appomattox.
