Colonels in Blue—Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee
  • Author : Roger D. Hunt
  • Publisher : McFarland
  • Release Date : 2014-01-13
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 260
  • ISBN Code: 1476613869

Summary: This biographical dictionary documents the Union army colonels who commanded regiments from Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. Entries are arranged first by state and then by regiment, and provide a biographical sketch of each colonel focusing on his Civil War service. Many of the colonels covered herein never rose above that rank, failing to win promotion to brigadier general or brevet brigadier general, and have therefore received very little scholarly attention prior to this work.




The Musick of the Mocking Birds, the Roar of the Cannon
  • Author : William Winters
  • Publisher : U of Nebraska Press
  • Release Date : 1998-01-01
  • Category: Biography & Autobiography
  • Pages : 154
  • ISBN Code: 9780803247734

Summary: William Winters was unlike most of the young soldiers who answered the Union?s appeal for men in 1861 and 1862. He was different from many of his comrades in age and point of view, and his war service was also out of the ordinary. The last great surge of popular voluntary enlistment swept up Winters, a thirty-two-year-old saddle and harness maker and father of three from Indiana. Like so many others in the Civil War, Winters was a prolific correspondent, and through his letters we have a record of some lesser-known campaigns. Winters served in the siege of Vicksburg and in the Red River Campaign, frequently as a nurse, a role that emphasized for him the darker side of the war. These letters and journal entries show a sensitive man who reflects upon both the loveliness of the southern locales in which he found himself and the hideousness of war.



THE 1ST FIGHTING IRISH: The 35th Indiana Volunteer Infantry
  • Author : Kevin Murray
  • Publisher : AuthorHouse
  • Release Date : 2013-12-05
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 154
  • ISBN Code: 1491826754

Summary: The 1st Fighting Irish: The 35th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, tells the compelling story of the exile of Ireland, Hoosiers who fought to preserve the Union of their newly adopted country. They fought for America at a time when the “native” American “Know Nothings” hated them for their foreign birth and Roman Catholic religion. Wearing green kepis to celebrate the “Ould Sod” the 1st Irish shed their red blood for the rather abstract idea of the “Union.” The text features this complex Indiana Regiment, and its southern battles, trials and tribulations. But the true story is the many unique and colorful individuals who made up this Celtic “Band of Brothers.” The Band was led by a Notre Dame Priest, and its nickname was eventually bestowed on the University of Notre Dame’s athletic teams. The 1st Fighting Irish: The Indiana 35th Indiana Volunteer Infantry, Hoosier Hibernians in the War for the Union, provides a fresh retrospective on the “War for the Union,” and serves to help preserve the memory of these brave Irish lads.

Three Years with Wallace's Zouaves
  • Author : Thomas Wise Durham
  • Publisher : Mercer University Press
  • Release Date : 2003
  • Category: Biography & Autobiography
  • Pages : 198
  • ISBN Code: 9780865548220

Summary: This book will appeal to anyone interested in the western theater of the Civil War, soldier life, or Indiana history. Durham's memoir is a well-written and detailed account of his experiences as both an enlisted soldier and a company officer in the Union Army, with valuable descriptions of combat, camp life, and encounters with fellow soldiers and civilians. Durham wrote with candor and seemed to avoid exaggerating his role in the events he describes. As Durham explained it the piece was intended for his family's enjoyment and not for publication, "to portray the joys and pleasures and sorrows, hardships and sufferings of a soldier in that war." Although some minor mistakes appear in his memoir, Durham obviously strove to make it as accurate as possible. Despite the fact that a number of soldier memoirs and reminiscences have been published in the past several years, few have dealt with the vitally important campaigns west of the Appalachians. In addition, practically nothing about the famous 11th Indiana regiment has appeared in print for decades. Thomas Wise Durham's extraordinary memoir of "ordinary" soldier life stands as a significant contribution to the genre of Civil War memoirs.





The Development of American Federalism
  • Author : William H. Riker
  • Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
  • Release Date : 2012-12-06
  • Category: Political Science
  • Pages : 234
  • ISBN Code: 9400932731

Summary: The chapters of this book have diverse origins. They were written over the period 1954-1984. Several (i.e., three, four, seven, and ten) were originally published in scholarly journals. Several (i.e., one, eight, nine, and eleven) are excerpts from my previous books: Soldiers of the States and Federalism: Origin, Operation and Significance. And several (i.e., two, five, and six) were written for conferences and are now published here for the first time. Despite the fact that this history suggests they are quite unrelated, these chapters do indeed center on one theme: the continuity of American federalism. In order to emphasize that theme, I have written an introduction and an initial commentary for each chapter. These commen taries, taken together, with the introduction, constitute the exposition of the theme. Some of these chapters (four, six, and ten) were written with my students, Ronald Schaps, John Lemco, and William Bast. They did much of the research and analysis so the credit for these chapters belongs to them as much as to me. Chapter five is based quite closely on William Paul Alexander's dissertation for the Ph. D. degree at the University of Rochester, 1973.









Indiana Quakers Confront the Civil War
  • Author : Jacquelyn S. Nelson
  • Publisher : Indiana Historical Society
  • Release Date : 1991
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 303
  • ISBN Code: N.A

Summary: When members of the Society of Friends, or Quakers, first arrived in antebellum Indiana, they could not have envisioned the struggle which would engulf the nation when the American Civil War began in 1861. Juxtaposed with its stand against slavery a second tenet of the Society's creed--adherence to peace--also challenged the unity of Friends when the dreaded conflict erupted. Indiana Quakers Confront the Civil War chronicles for the first time the military activities of Indiana Quakers during America's bloodiest war and explores the motivation behind the abandonment, at least temporarily, of their long-standing testimony against war.








Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers
  • Author : Bruce A. Glasrud
  • Publisher : University of Missouri Press
  • Release Date : 2011-03-21

  • ISBN Code: 0826272304

Summary: During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, African American men were seldom permitted to join the United States armed forces. There had been times in early U.S. history when black and white men fought alongside one another; it was not uncommon for integrated units to take to battle in the Revolutionary War. But by the War of 1812, the United States had come to maintain what one writer called “a whitewashed army.” Yet despite that opposition, during the early 1800s, militia units made up of free black soldiers came together to aid the official military troops in combat. Many black Americans continued to serve in times of military need. Nearly 180,000 African Americans served in units of the U.S. Colored Troops during the Civil War, and others, from states such as Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Missouri, and Kansas, participated in state militias organized to protect local populations from threats of Confederate invasion. As such, the Civil War was a turning point in the acceptance of black soldiers for national defense. By 1900, twenty-two states and the District of Columbia had accepted black men into some form of military service, usually as state militiamen—brothers to the “buffalo soldiers” of the regular army regiments, but American military men regardless. Little has been published about them, but Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers: Perspectives on the African American Militia and Volunteers, 1865–1919, offers insights into the varied experiences of black militia units in the post–Civil War period. The book includes eleven articles that focus either on “Black Participation in the Militia” or “Black Volunteer Units in the War with Spain.” The articles, collected and introduced by author and scholar Bruce A. Glasrud, provide an overview of the history of early black citizen-soldiers and offer criticism from prominent academics interested in that experience. Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers discusses a previously little-known aspect of the black military experience in U.S. history, while deliberating on the discrimination these men faced both within and outside the military. Chosen on the bases of scholarship, balance, and readability, these articles provide a rare composite picture of the black military man’s life during this period. Brothers to the Buffalo Soldiers offers both a valuable introductory text for students of military studies and a solid source of material for African American historians.
