Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Major Edward Manigault, one of the commanding officers ordered by General P. G. T. Beauregard to document his unit's daily operations, began a diary in July 1863 that would become one of the most informative records to survive the Civil War. Covering thirteen months of combat in one of the Confederacy's rare siege artillery units, Manigault's journal offers a day-by-day, and at times hour-by-hour, account of life on the front lines. Especially notable for its description of artillery training, Manigault's diary vividly depicts his unit's participation in such well-known engagements at the battle for Battery Wagner and the attempt to seize the U.S. gunboat Marblehead.

Format: Paperback
I am working on some family genealogy at the moment,so I picked up this and Scottish Emigration to Colonial America by David Dobson to get some background on my ancestors.

My gg-grandfather is supposed to have been involved in the "Defense of Charleston," and, in fact, actually disappeared from there never to return home again. Interesting to read a first person account of that time and I found something that requires more research--love research! Most interesting are the numerous accounts of the artillery that, at best simply did not work and, at worst exploded, killing those using it!

I'm not certain that anyone would want to read this unless, like me, they have some kind of connection to it, or, again like me, they have a Civil War history jones! Anyway, it served my purpose.
