Format: Hardcover
The authors have researched and visited the grave sites of all 425 Confederate generals, even those overseas.
Each is listed complete with a picture of the man, details of his life and military career (with some corrections of errors on gravestones), name and location of the cemetery, (with detailed directions to the obscure ones), and a photo of the grave marker.
The basic layout is by State, but the Table of Contents, Alphabetical Listing, and Index make it easy to find any information. The usefulness is further augmented by tables showing where the generals were born, died, and are buried, the region and branch where they served, when and where mortal injury took place, (where applicable), and the numbers laid to rest in various types of cemeteries.
In sum, an admirable production, highly recommended for libraries and military history collections, and a valuable addition to anyone's Civil War bookshelf.
(The "score" rating is an unfortunately ineradicable feature of the page. This reviewer does not "score" books.)

GENERALS AT REST: THE GRAVE SITES OF THE 425 OFFICIAL CONFEDERATE GENERALS
RICHARD OWEN AND JAMES OWEN
WHITE MANE BOOKS, 1997
QUALITY SOFTCOVER, $29.95, 388 PAGES, APPENDIX, BIBLIOGRAPHY, INDEX, PHOTOGRAPHS

Did you know that Confederate generals are buried in Mexico, New York City, Connecticut, and California? Yes, it is true. Major Generak Camille Armand Jules Marie is the only Confederate general buried in Germany! There are also ones buried in New Jersey and Pennsylvania as well.

During The War Between The States, 425 men held the post of brigadier general or higher within the Confederacy and authors Richard and James Owen visited the gravesites of each one. This text includes photographs of every brigadier general and above and as well as their gravesites. Also included are short but informative biographies. But the most interesting thing about this book is the location of each officer's gravesite. While it would have been nice to have some color photographs, the black and white photographs still provide a good impression of these men. In light of the ongoing 150th anniversary of The War Between The States, this book is a welcome addition to the ever growing literature of America's bloodiest conflict.
