The United States Marine Corps In The Civil War: The Final Year opens with the elevation of Major Jacob Zellen to the commandant of the corps, over officers senior to him. This ended the policy of accession to that post by seniority and established the precedent of deep-selection. Civil War historian David Sullivan provides a complete account of the marines in the desperate, bloody fights at Mobile Bay, Honey Hill, Tulfinny Crossroads, and Fort Fisher. Active on all fronts during the last year of the war, marines also played a little-known role in the events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Sullivan concludes his invaluable, highly recommended and very welcome contribution to Civil War studies with a detailed refutation of the spurious, erroneous, and derogatory conclusions that have hitherto obscured the historical record of Marine Corps involvement in the American civil war.

If you are into Marine Corps history this book is a must. Marines have participated in every military conflict in U.S. history and the Civil War was one of them. Very enjoyable, and something new to learn. Semper Fidelis!
