I read this book and it's truly wonderful. I felt closer to my great-great grandfather who joined the Third Arkansas for the duration. He was a remarkable man who felt himself unremarkable. I can only speculate but I'm sure he was about as anti-war in his thinking when he mustered out at Antietam and walked on home as a battle-hardened person could be. He had to be prodded to collect his Civil War pension and didn't even go to the reunion. They'll do to tie to is an understatement of the description of the South's finest foot soldier.

My great-great grandfather served in Company I, 3rd Arkansas Regiment. Reading this brought me as close as possible to understanding what he endured. Elijah Goza served for the duration of the War for Southern Independence. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Calvin Collier's book about the 3rd Arkansas Regiment is an excellent book about the history of the 3rd Arkansas Regiment that fought in the Army of Northern Virginia. Written in 1951, it is the only book thus far that focuses only on the 3rd Ark Regiment. This regiment formed soon after Arkansas seceeded from the Union in 1861 was the only regiment from Arkansas that fought in the Army of Northern Virginia under General Robert E. Lee. The 3rd Arkansas fought along side the 1st, 4th, and 5th Texas Infantry in Hood's Brigade in the Eastern Theatre of the Civil War. This regiment was a hard fighting regiment that was used along side the Texas Regiments as General Lee's "shock troops". The Texas Regiments would call the 3rd Arkansas soldiers "honorary Texans" and unofficially the "3rd Texas Regiment". A high honor indeed! The 3rd Arkansas was led by the outstanding leadership of Colonel Van Manning who led the regiment in many of the battles they partook in. The 3rd Arkansas acquired a reputation as tenacious fighters, often finding themselves in the thickest fighting on the battlefield, such as their presence at the "sunken road" during the Battle of Antietam. Their most famous action was while serving as a part of the Texas Brigade during the Battle of Gettysburg, at the Devil's Den, where they took heavy casualties while serving under General John Bell Hood. The regiment was commended for gallantry in that action, while under the direct command of Brigadier General Jerome B. Robertson, fighting in and in the vicinity of the "Devil's Den".Arkansas Regiment. The regiment was transfered to the Western Theatre with the Texas Regiments under General John Bell Hood and fought at Chickamauga.Read more ›
