Randy Bishop Sacrifices of the Porters

Sacrifices of the Porters examines the exploits and contributions of three brothers who volunteered to serve, and paid the ultimate price, in the War Between the States. Leaving their West Tennessee home and family, the Porter boys became members of three separate unitsthe Eleventh Mississippi, the Twenty-Ninth Mississippi, and the First Confederate Cavalry Regiment. In turn, these young men and their comrades saw action in some of the wars most intense battles. Sadly, each of the Porter brothers was killed in the course of the war, and their bodies were hastily placed into unmarked graves. Their plights and sacrifices are carefully recorded through the use of family letters, additional primary sources, and other historical documents.

John Filson The Adventures of Daniel Boone. The Discovery, Settlement and Present State of Kentucke

The Adventures of Daniel Boone: The Discovery, Settlement, and Present State of Kentucke is an account of the newly-claimed and settled state of Kentucky in the late 1700s. Written in 1784, the work was immensely popular and translated into French and German many times, mainly because of the exciting Daniel Boone tales. The author, John Filson, was a Kentucky settler himself and promoted the exciting and attractive aspects of Kentucky in an effort to gather even more settlers and surveyors to the territory. The work includes a hand-drawn map of Kentucky and an appendix relating the exciting life of Daniel Boone. An essential reference for settlers (and dreamers) in the 16th century, this book is a valuable guide for any student of American history.JOHN FILSON (C. 1753-1788) was an American author and historian whose work mostly revolved around the settlement of Kentucky. Filson was born and raised in Pennsylvania, attended West Nottingham Academy in Maryland, and taught school in Kentucky. He interviewed settlers and pioneers across the state while he himself surveyed and settled land, compiling his findings into several different memoirs and accounts. Years later, after multiple lawsuits and financial troubles, Filson purchased the land that would later become Cincinnati, Ohio. He is believed to have died during a Shawnee Indian attack in 1788, though his body was never recovered.

Harry G. Enoch John Martin of Lower Howard.s Creek, Clark County, Kentucky

John Martin was a pioneer of Clark County, Kentucky, where he lived on Lower Howard's Creek. John had been a blacksmith in Goochland County, Virginia, where he married Rachel Pace. He owned a small farm there before moving to Ballenger Creek in what is now Fluvanna County. John and Rachel were the parents of thirteen children. In the late 1780s, the parents and children moved to Kentucky. John settled on a hillside farm in an area then known as the Bush Settlement. John now has descendants too numerous to count, some still in Clark County, the others spread all over. Our John Martin has been confused with a number of other men of the same name, and their deeds have been conflated to create a mythical man. One goal of this work is to provide a fully documented history of the life of John Martin of Lower Howard's Creek. Illustrated, indexed.

George B. Guild The 4th Tennessee Cavalry. The Services of Smith.s Regiment of Confederate Cavalry by One of Its Officers

The history of vital Confederate cavalry regimentThis history of a famous and dashing cavalry regiment of the Confederate forces during the American Civil War was authored by a serving officer who became the regiment's adjutant. It concerns Baxter Smith's 4th Tennessee Cavalry as distinct from another-which bore the same number-under Colonel Stearn. Previously published as 'A Brief History' this account paints a vibrant picture of the regiment on campaign and on the battlefield in such detail as only one among its ranks could provide. We join the horsemen of the South at Chickamauga, on Wheelers Raid, in Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, South and North Carolina in several actions. Included within this book is an account of Bragg's Kentucky Campaign by Baxter Smith-the regiment's commander.

John Tulloch Nash, Henry Metcalfe Men of the Mutiny. Two Accounts of the Great Indian Mutiny of 1857

Fighting with the Bengal Yeomanry Cavalry by John Tulloch NashPrivate Metcalfe at Lucknow by Henry MetcalfeTwo vital recollections of the great Indian uprisingThis is another Leonaur volume which includes two essential perspectives of a single conflict within one book for great value reading. The first account sees the Mutiny from the perspective of a hastily thrown together unit of irregular cavalry. The author-a gentleman volunteer-saw much hard riding, tough campaigning and brutal action. He has recorded it all here for posterity in this rare but vital first hand account. By contrast, Private Metcalfe's is an authentic voice of the ordinary infantryman of the Queen Empress's regular army. A soldier of the 32nd Foot from the age of thirteen Metcalfe was of the stuff that 'kept the map red'. Rough, tough, nostalgic and capable of acts of violence and great kindness by turns, Metcalfe possessed almost limitless endurance, stoicism and good humour throughout one of the most demanding actions of the war-the siege of the Residency at Lucknow.

A famous Confederate commander and the elite force that bore his nameThe American Civil War, which split the nation's small officer cadre in two, inevitably ensured many young officers from both Union and Confederate states would reach high rank. Some of those men earned abiding fame. One of the subjects of this book, John Bell Hood, needs little introduction to any student of the period. Hood, a veritable 'Viking warrior' of a figure epitomised the dash, daring and aggressive command in action which typified the cream of the officer corps of the Confederate Army and his leadership qualities elevated him from the rank of First-Lieutenant, USA to Lieutenant-General, CSA. Initially he directly led the equally renowned hard fighting infantry of his 'Texas Brigade,' consisting of the 1st, 4th and 5th Texas Infantry together with the 18th Georgia Infantry and, later, the 3rd Arkansas Infantry. There was, of course, a justifiable glamour associated with these men from the 'wild' west, particularly when led by the imposing figure, character and military talent of Hood. 'Hood's Texas Brigade' amply justified their reputation as a force to be reckoned with and, along with the 'Stonewall Brigade,' were thought of as the 'shock troops' of the Army of Northern Virginia. They saw action in many of the pivotal engagements of the conflict including, of course, at Gettysburg where they came under Hood's divisional command. This book...

Denis Charles Parquin The Adventures of Captain Parquin. the Recollections of a French Cavalry Officer of the Chasseurs During the Napoleonic Era

The gripping memoirs of a cavalry officer of the First EmpireThis is the story of a remarkable French cavalryman of the Napoleonic era, Denis Charles Parquin, an officer of the Chasseurs a Cheval. Memoirs of soldiers of Napoleon's army are always exciting, but few exist in English translation. Those that have been translated such as the recollections of Coignet, Barres, Bourgogne and Marbot have become famous and provide a valuable resource of first hand information. Parquin joined the 20th regiment of the horse chasseurs in 1806 and served with it until 1813 rising in rank to lieutenant. He fought at Saalfeld, Jena, Eylau, Wagram, in the Iberian Peninsula at Ciudad Rodrigo and at Salamanca, gathering wounds as well as regimental promotions. In 1813, Parquin agreed to take a reduction in rank to join the elite Chasseurs a Cheval of the Imperial Guard, where he became the emperor's escort on the march and in the field. Napoleon personally awarded Parquin the cross of the Legion of Honour during a review in the same year. In the final battles of the First Empire Parquin fought at Leipzig, Hanau-where he was wounded-and during the battle for France in 1814, that led to the emperor's abdication and the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy. There is some evidence that Parquin took part in the Battle of Waterloo-probably as a cuirassier. He remained in the cavalry under the royalist regime, but was eventually ruined by his involvement in Bonapartist conspiracies. This bo...

Edward G. Longacre Lincoln's Cavalrymen. A History of the Mounted Forces of the Army of the Potomac, 1861-1865

Lincoln's Cavalrymen describes the organizational, administrative, and operational history of the mounted arm of "Mr. Lincoln's Army." Historian Edward G. Longacre consulted at least fifty manuscript collections pertaining to general officers of cavalry, as well as the unpublished letters and diaries of more than 450 officers and enlisted men, representing almost every mounted unit in the Army of the Potomac. The result is the most comprehensive history of the Union cavalry to date. It covers the gamut of cavalry life-not only field operations but also the recruiting, organizing, mounting, remounting, equipping, training, tactical instruction, and war-long support of this critical branch of the nineteenth-century army. The book vividly portrays the cavalry's most influential commanders and assesses the depth and quality of its leadership. Longacre also seeks to place the cavalry in the context of the army and the war effort as a whole.Edward G. Longacre is the author of numerous articles and twenty-four books on the Civil War, including The Cavalry at Gettysburg, winner of the Fletcher Pratt Award for best nonfiction book on the Civil War, and Gentleman and Soldier: A Biography of Wade Hampton III, winner of the Douglas Southall Freeman History Award.

Victor M. Rose, S. B. Barron Ross. Texans . the American Civil War. Accounts of the Confederate Soldiers Commanded by General Lawrence Sullivan Ross-Ross. Texas Brigade by Victor M. Rose . The Lone Star Defenders by S. B. Barron

‘The rollicking, rascally and brave boys from the Lone Star state’ The American Civil War brought forth several notable soldiers and commanders on both the Union and Confederate sides of the conflict. Sometimes the man and the men they led became both exceptional and inextricably linked. The principal character of this book, Confederate general Lawrence Sullivan (Sul) Ross and his Texas Cavalry Brigade were one such outstanding pairing. Ross was a professional soldier who had seen action in the south-west against native American tribes before the war. He was, in fact, during the campaigns against the Comanches, one of those responsible for liberating Cynthia Parker, mother of Quanah Parker. Ross’s Brigade, C. S. A., were not always under the command of Ross, but their success and prowess under his command has linked them forever. Indeed, these cavalry regiments were not always mounted, and served with distinction for a period as infantry. Ross’s brigade consisted of the 3rd, 6th, 9th and 27th (sometimes known as the ‘Legion’) Texas cavalry regiments. This famous unit saw hard service in many engagements of the conflict including the Atlanta Campaign. All are graphically described in this special two-in-one Leonaur volume, which, recounted by those who witnessed these events, details the incredible history of not only one of the most famous active units of the American Civil War, but also the career of their fine leader.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles...

Edward G. Longacre Lee's Cavalrymen. A History of the Mounted Forces of the Army of Northern Virginia, 1861-1865

"A major work . . . Longacre succeeds brilliantly in showing us a crucial, much-tested force."-Publishers WeeklySince the first histories of the Civil War appeared after Appomattox, the cavalry has received intermittent, uneven, and even romanticized coverage. Historian Edward G. Longacre has corrected this oversight. In Lee's Cavalrymen, Longacre not only details the organizational, administrative, and operational history of the mounted arm of the Army of Northern Virginia but also examines the personal experiences of officers and men. Longacre chronicles the salient characteristics of the regiments, brigades, and divisions, and explores the evolution of cavalry leadership, with emphasis on the personalities, interpersonal relationships, and operational styles of J. E. B. Stuart, Wade Hampton, Fitzhugh Lee, and other influential commanders. In his exhaustive research, the author has consulted dozens of collections of letters, diaries, and memoirs by cavalrymen of all ranks. Careful study of North Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia newspapers unearthed rare cavalry-specific dispatches. The author has left no stone unturned, and is the first historian to make extensive use of an unpublished memoir of Gen. Wade Hampton, Stuart's second-in-command. Well known for challenging conventional wisdom, Longacre also offers a provocative analysis of the mounted army's organization, leadership, and tactics. Lee's Cavalrymen is a study that no Civil War enthusiast wil...

F. De Brack French . Allied Cavalry Outposts. Two Classic Treatises by Leading Commanders of Cavalry During the Napoleonic Wars-Cavalry Outpost Duties by F. de Br

The horse soldier at war in the Napoleonic AgeThis unique two-in-one Leonaur volume, enhanced by illustrations depicting the uniforms of the period, has been created for good value and will be fascinating to all students of tactics in the Napoleonic Wars. It focuses on the organisation and practices in the field of European cavalry of the early nineteenth century. Each author considers the mounted arm from the perspective of his own army and enables easy comparisons to be made between the activities and methods of opposing forces. Antoine de Brack's work is well known and highly regarded. De Brack was the consummate cavalryman serving Napoleon and, on the restoration of the monarchy, in the French army of the Bourbons. A highly experienced officer, de Brack served in the hussars and as one of the famous 'Red Lancers' of the Imperial Guard on many campaigns including at Waterloo; he later became the commander of the renowned French Army school of cavalry at Saumur. Frederick von Arentschildt's was Lt. Colonel of the First Regiment of Hussars of the King's German Legion and his name will be familiar to students of Wellington's campaigns in the Iberian peninsula. At a time when British cavalry was considered to be an unreliable and undisciplined part of the army, often unmanageable on the field of battle, Arentschildt's Hanoverian cavalrymen earned a high reputation for their discipline, horse-husbandry and effectiveness.Leonaur editions are newly typ...

James Moore, Joseph G. Vale, S. B. Barron Kilpatrick and His Raid. the Career of a Notable Commander of Union Cavalry and His Raid Through Virginia, 1864, With Two Short Accounts of the Kilpatrick Raid

A notorious commander of Union cavalry and his infamous raid into the ConfederacyThe subject of this book, Hugh Judson Kilpatrick, claimed the dubious distinction of being the first Union Army officer to be wounded in the American Civil War. Commissioned in the Artillery, he quickly became an officer of Zouave infantry before joining the 2nd New York Cavalry as its lieutenant-colonel. It would henceforth be as a commander of cavalry that Kilpatrick would garner fame and infamy, for he eventually earned the nickname of ‘Kilcavalry’ because of alleged carelessness with the lives of his men. Kilpatrick rose quickly in rank until before the Battle of Gettysburg during which he was promoted to brigadier general. During the battle he ordered a pointless and rash charge which resulted in heavy casualties among his men, and the death in action of Brigadier General Farnsworth, whom Kilpatrick had accused of cowardice following his protests against carrying out orders he knew would result in disaster. Kilpatrick is particularly known for his raid through the Virginian Peninsula towards Richmond in 1864. The plan did not go well, particularly for a detached brigade under Ulric Dahlgren, which was savaged in a Confederate ambush which resulted in the death of Dahlgren. A political furore was caused when it was alleged that the purpose of the raid had been to assassinate Jefferson Davis. This unique Leonaur book relates Kilpatrick’s tempestuous career and gives insights into his raid from...

No one played a more important role in the settlement of Clark County than Capt. William "Billy" Bush. Born in Orange County, Virginia, Billy came out with Daniel Boone in 1775, resided for a time at Fort Boonesborough, then spent the rest of his life living a few miles from the fort. He thus became one of the first permanent settlers in Kentucky. He thus became one of the first permanent settlers in Kentucky. He fought in the "Indian Wars" from the Battle of Point Pleasant (1774) to General Harmar's defeat (1790). Billy was also a key figure in establishing Providence Baptist Church, the first church in Clark County. Their place of worship-the Old Stone Church-is now the oldest church on Kentucky soil. Billy Bush laid claim to thousands of acres of land between Winchester and the Kentucky River, and Daniel Boone ran the surveys for him. This land became the foundation of the Bush Settlement. 392 pages, indexed

M. H. Ouvry A Lady.s Indian Mutiny Diary. Recollections of a Cavalry Officer.s Wife Before . During the Indian Mutiny, 1857

The mutiny as seen by a Lancer's wifeThis account, which briefly covers life in India immediately preceding the Indian Mutiny, was originally titled A Lady's Life Before and During the Indian Mutiny. The 'red' year of 1857 was an apocalyptic one for many of the British in India and Mrs. Ouvry's account as she gives us the perspective of a wife of a senior regimental officer in a British Army cavalry regiment is, of course, harrowing. Henry Ouvry was an officer of the 3rd Light Dragoons before transferring to the 9th Lancers who saw much action and earned themselves a fearsome reputation during the Mutiny. Although Mrs. Ouvry was spared the experiences of the wives of officers of native regiments whose men rose up to slaughter them, this was still a time of anguish, terror and uncertainty for her, and this memoir brings her experiences vividly to life for anyone interested in the period. Her husband's book, Cavalry Experiences is also available from Leonaur and is an excellent companion work touching on the same events.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Charles House One With the Fox

"Being of these hills," James Still writes in his poem, Heritage, "being one with the fox . . . I cannot pass beyond." A thread that winds through the essays in this book is this notion of being able to take the boy out of the hills but not the hills out of the boy. The essays are not only about eastern Kentucky. They are about seeing and experiencing things through an eastern Kentucky filter no matter how far and wide the author has travelled.

Serge V. Memoirs of a Revolutionary (NYRB Classics)

Victor Serge is one of the great men of the 20th century —and one of its great writers too. He was an anarchist, an agitator, a revolutionary, an exile, a historian of his times, as well as a brilliant novelist, and in Memoirs of a Revolutionary he devotes all his passion and genius to describing this extraordinary—and exemplary—career. Serge tells of his upbringing among exiles and conspirators, of his involvement with the notorious Bonnot Gang and his years in prison, of his role in the Russian Revolution, and of the Revolution’s collapse into despotism and terror. Expelled from the Soviet Union, Serge went to Paris, where he evaded the KGB and the Nazis before fleeing to Mexico. Memoirs of a Revolutionary recounts a thrilling life on the front lines of history and includes vivid portraits not only of Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin but of countless other figures who struggled to remake the world. Peter Sedgwick’s fine translation of Memoirs of a Revolutionary was abridged when first published in 1963. This is the first edition in English to present the entirety of Serge’s book.

Anthony Trollope An Eye for an Eye

Fred Neville aka Justin Groch, a lieutenant of cavalry and heir to the earldom of Scroope, woos and then seduces the beautiful Kate O’Hara. Kate lives with her mother in genteel poverty in an isolated cottage near the cliffs of Moher in western Ireland. News of the romantic entanglement quickly reaches Scroope Manor, and Fred is summoned back to Dorsetshire where the earl extracts a firm undertaking that Fred will not marry Kate O’Hara under any circumstances, despite any promises he has made to the girl.Anthony Trollope was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-loved works, collectively known as the Barchester Chronicles, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters.

ALEXANDER GORDON HUSSAR IN WINTER - A BRITISH CAVALRY OFFICER IN THE RETREAT TO CORUNNA IN THE PENINSULAR CAMPAIGN OF THE NAPOLEONIC WARS

HUSSAR IN WINTER - A CAVALRYMAN'S EXPERIENCE OF A HARSH CAMPAIGNAlexander Gordon witnessed the Peninsular War against Napoleon's French Army from the saddle of a light cavalry mount. His was a campaign of patrols and piquets, scouting and skirmishing. Caught up in the gruelling winter campaign that was the retreat to Corunna, where the pressures of the constantly pursuing French were made worse by the privations of short rations, appalling weather and difficult terrain, Gordon tells a story of fighting withdrawal, but never of defeat. These pages also bring to life the fury and action of the Napoleonic cavalry charge that was the ambition of every horse soldier. Hussar in Winter is an essential Napoleonic memoir foranyone interested in the British Cavalry

The collection is sourced from the remarkable library of Victor Amadeus, whose Castle Corvey collection was one of the most spectacular discoveries of the late 1970s.

The collection thus contains everything from novels and short stories to belles lettres and more populist works, and includes many exceedingly rare works not available in any other collection from the period.

John Munson, John H. Alexander The Gray Raiders-Volume 2. Accounts of Mosby . His Raiders During the American Civil War-Reminiscences of a Mosby Guerrilla by John Munson . Mosby.s Men by John H. Alexander

The second volume in a collection of accounts of Mosby and his Confederate RaidersIn this second volume of personal narratives by two members of Mosby's command, readers will find the personal experiences of Johnny Munson, a teenager from Richmond who realised his ambitions for high adventure riding with Mosby. John Alexander, whose book is also included here, set out to join his friends in the 'Black Horse' troop of the 4th Virginia Cavalry, but found the appeal of a 'partisan ranger' life irresistible. The American Civil War brought to the fore a number of outstanding military figures and, given its culture and chivalric spirit, it is perhaps fair to say that the South provided more that its share of extraordinary soldiers. There is something alluring about the daredevil raider, who appears from nowhere behind enemy lines and wreaks havoc, and then disappears before he can be brought to account. Such men were became legends, and foremost among them in the Confederate Army was the 'Gray Ghost,' Virginian cavalryman John Singleton Mosby. Like his predecessor, Robert Rogers of the Rangers, he possessed courage, intellect, daring and martial fortitude ready-made for the perilous form of war he chose to fight. Fortunately, several of Mosby's men left fine first hand accounts of their time serving under this famous commander, and Leonaur is republishing all of them-in value for money omnibus editions-to provide American Civil War enthusiasts with a...

TROOP HORSE & TRENCH - WARFARE IN THE 'TWILIGHT DAYS' OF THE BRITISH CAVALRYFor those who imagined that the role of the cavalry on the Western Front was a passive one waiting for the opportunity to put the 'Gee' in 'Gap', this book will be a revelation. After a brief period of traditional cavalry operations in the opening months of the war, the Household Cavalry took its part in the gruelling trench warfare that typified the British effort in Belgium and France. The author - a regular serving soldier - provides a vivid and entertaining account of cavalry life in the pre-war period, action against mounted Uhlans and of his experiences in the front line under rifle fire and bombardment.

A famous Confederate commander and the elite force that bore his nameThe American Civil War, which split the nation's small officer cadre in two, inevitably ensured many young officers from both Union and Confederate states would reach high rank. Some of those men earned abiding fame. One of the subjects of this book, John Bell Hood, needs little introduction to any student of the period. Hood, a veritable 'Viking warrior' of a figure epitomised the dash, daring and aggressive command in action which typified the cream of the officer corps of the Confederate Army and his leadership qualities elevated him from the rank of First-Lieutenant, USA to Lieutenant-General, CSA. Initially he directly led the equally renowned hard fighting infantry of his 'Texas Brigade,' consisting of the 1st, 4th and 5th Texas Infantry together with the 18th Georgia Infantry and, later, the 3rd Arkansas Infantry. There was, of course, a justifiable glamour associated with these men from the 'wild' west, particularly when led by the imposing figure, character and military talent of Hood. 'Hood's Texas Brigade' amply justified their reputation as a force to be reckoned with and, along with the 'Stonewall Brigade,' were thought of as the 'shock troops' of the Army of Northern Virginia. They saw action in many of the pivotal engagements of the conflict including, of course, at Gettysburg where they came under Hood's divisional command. This book...
