“The author has a command of both the minutiae of battle and of the conflict’s greater implications. He gives credit where it is due and issues criticism where it is warranted . . . . Scholars of the conflict and students of Florida history will now be better informed, and all are in William Nulty’s debt.”
—Journal of American History
“A definitive account of the undeservedly neglected Olustee Campaign and its relationship to the wider strategic and logistic problems of the Civil War. Civil War buffs and students of military history should find Nulty’s book profitable and enjoyable.”
“Based on extensive research. It is unlikely that the military aspects of the Battle of Olustee will need to be treated again for some time.”
—Journal of Southern History
About the Author
Top customer reviews
This book is much to my liking. Written as a research paper with copious references in order of presentation in the text. It reads easy, fast, and concise even for the non-historian. Kudos to Lt. Col. William H. Nulty for above and beyond the call for such a detailed and outstanding work. I very much appreciate his efforts.
The book’s primary focus is the Battle of Olustee which is down the road from where I reside and which I travel by each time I go to Jacksonville or Gainesville. I have been to the battlefield site which is not impressive; but this book brings out the entire story of the events that led to the battle, reasons for Union expedition, a description of the battle, and the aftermath. For the military historian the battle chapter needs to be read twice to understand the maneuver or lack thereof of the combatants. If you’re wondering where the Fifty-Fourth Black Massachusetts went to after the movie” Glory” assault on Ft. Wagner, it was here. If you would like to know what happened to them read this book.
