Here begins one of the most remarkable works of history ever fashioned. All the great battles are here, of course, from Bull Run through Shiloh, the Seven Days, Second Manassas to Antietam and Perryville in the fall of 1862, but so are the smaller and often equally important engagements on both land and sea: Ball's Bluff, Fort Donelson, Pea Ridge, Island Ten, New Orleans, Monitor versus Merrimac, and Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign--to mention only a few.… (mehr)

The second volume of Shelby Foote's Civil War history is just as thorough and comprehensive as the first. Foote has covered every aspect of the American Civil War his work. After reading this I feel that I know and understand characters on both sides of the conflict. Foote devoted pages of the book to Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, generals and politicians on both sides but also touched on the lives of the ordinary folks on both side of the conflict. I though the narration was excellent but the maps included were inadequate. I would recommend reading this book with a good civil war atlas at hand. I will be starting on the third and final volume soon.

This volume is heavier than Volume 1. There are more characters about whom Foote has trouble finding good things to say. Sherman gives a trial run to Total War by carving a pathway of destruction through Mississippi. Lincoln is beginning to seem like Bomber Harris in letting little stand in his way in furthering a just cause. At the very least (in Foote's imagery) Lincoln is like a chess player who is up a rook and is more than happy to exchange pieces, sure that he would win a battle of attrition.

Still, Foote writes beautifully. Maybe I'll read Volume 3 when the pandemic is over. ( )

Best intro to Civil War. ( )

Reading Shelby Foote is a delight, especially when one has to suffer the bad grammar and poor sentence structure of modern authors. His way with words is quite refreshing.

I took to this book eagerly, after reading the excellent first volume of this trilogy. This one tended to drag in places, which was a bit disappointing. Nevertheless, the narrative of the battle of Gettysburg was peerless.

All told, worth a read. I am looking forward to plowing into volume 3. ( )

ALL THESE WERE HONOURED IN THEIR GENERATIONS
AND WERE THE GLORY OF THEIR TIMES

THERE BE OF THEM
THAT HAVE LEFT A NAME BEHIND THEM
THAT THEIR PRAISES MIGHT BE REPORTED

AND SOME THERE BE WHICH HAVE NO MEMORIAL
WHO ARE PERISHED AS THOUGH THEY HAD NEVER BEEN
AND ARE BECOME AS THOUGH THEY HAD NEVER BEEN BORN
AND THEIR CHILDREN AFTER THEM

BUT THESE WERE MERCIFUL MEN
WHOSE RIGHTEOUSNESS HATH NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN

WITH THEIR SEED SHALL CONTINUALLY REMAIN
A GOOD INHERITANCE
AND THEIR CHILDREN ARE WITHIN THE COVENANT

THEIR SEED STANDETH FAST
AND THEIR CHILDREN FOR THEIR SAKES

THEIR SEED SHALL REMAIN FOR EVER
AND THEIR GLORY SHALL NOT BE BLOTTED OUT

THEIR BODIES ARE BURIED IN PEACE
BUT THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE

"After an absence of nearly two years," Jefferson Davis told the legislators assembled under the golden dome of his home-state capitol on the day after Christmas, 1862 - twenty months and two weeks, to the day, since the guns of Charleston opened fire on Sumter to inaugurate the civil war no one could know was not yet halfway over - "I again find myself among those who, from the days of my childhood, have ever been the trusted objects of my affection, those for whose good I have ever striven and whose interests I have sometimes hoped I may have contributed to subserve...I left you to assume the duties which have devolved upon me as the representative of the new Confederacy."
