Editorial Reviews

Review

"After 25 years, the project is still going strong, unwavering in its commitment to quality .... Students of Civil War photography will appreciate this book, as well those with a more specialized interest in Alabama's people and their war."

--Civil War Books and Authors

"A first rate scholarly work that Civil War historians will find invaluable for understanding the inner workings of an army both in combat and in camp. As a rare example of a general officer's diary that covers the entire span of the conflict, this book is an important contribution to the field."

--Kim Allen Scott in Arkansas Historical Quarterly, winter 2012

"Reynolds began his diary on May 25, 1861, the day his company left home. Though some entries are brief, there is one for almost every day through June 15, 1865. His comments on battles are extensive, his opinions of Confederate generals and their interactions insightful, and his travels through nine states informative. Reynolds' record is a valuable addition to confederate literature dealing with both the Trans-Mississippi and Western theaters, and Robert Bender has significantly enhanced it with 98 pages of detailed editorial notes."

--Larry Hewitt in Blue & Gray Magazine, 2012

"Should appeal to all Civil War buffs, as well as to all those who are interested in Alabama history."

--Roger D. Cunningham, The Journal of America's Military Past, Fall 2013

Praise for the Portraits of Conflict Series:



"The Portraits of Conflict books make for terrific browsing… as the reader turns the pages, and reads one profile to the next, he has no idea what fate has in store for the next soldier, with the randomness of that fate on full display." --H-Net



"A major contribution and welcome addition to Civil War history." --The Journal of Southern History



"A sensibly priced, beautifully produced photographic history." --Civil War History



"A splendid addition to the graphic literature of the sectional conflict." --Choice



"Destined to become a collector's item… first class." --The Civil War News



"Fine, attractive photographic history." --Kansas History

I bought this for my father for his birthday. The book is very nice and the pictures are awesome. If you live in Alabama and are interested in the Civil War, this is the book you need. The stories are good.

Great information and photographic record of the men of Alabama. I would recommend this for every first class Civil War Library.

When I saw that this book was available I immediately thought of my brother-in-law who had a birthday coming up. After thinking about golf balls, another shirt, or a gift card, I decided that this book would do the trick: be something he could enjoy! He did! He is!

According to his wife--my sister Julie--he is impressed with the book, the quality of the art and the information and really enjoying it. "He loves it!" my sister said, and she meant it.

Is there a sequel, because he's going to have another birthday next year, God willing.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a hefty tome, filled with photographs of a variety of soldiers and statesmen who served Alabama and the Confederacy during the War Between the States. Each image is accompanied by a biographical sketch placing the subject in the context of the War. My sole reservation is that the book does not include photographs and biographies of some of the women who also served during this period, such as Octavia Walton Le Vert, a writer of international reknown whose salon in Mobile attracted every prominent visitor to that city; Emma Sansom, who guided Nathan Bedford Forrest to a ford over Black Creek so that he could continue his pursuit of Streight's Raiders; and Virginia Clay-Clopton, close friend of the Davises, whose husband, Senator Clay, was imprisoned with Jefferson Davis at Fortress Monroe after the War. Perhaps these women will find a place in a revised edition of this otherwise very fine book.
