History of the 103d Regiment  Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry  Vol  1

Excerpt from History of the 103d Regiment, Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry, Vol. 1: 1861-1865 When the writer accepted the honor as historian of his Regiment he had no realization of the task involved. After more than forty years since the final events of the Civil War, he expected to use the compilations of others who had carefully examined everything bearing on the most important events in which his Regiment had participated. Instead, however, of receiving assistance from this source he found the task made doubly difficult by the fact that most of the writers on these events have accepted the gossip of the camps, evidently without confirmation or research, even when censuring their comrades in arms. Attention is called to this at some length in numerous extracts from historical narratives and in a personal sketch. In the preparation of this work an earnest endeavor has been made to present everything pertaining to the Regiment which would be of interest to surviving members, and care has been exercised to avoid undue exaggeration. In preparing the regimental narrative constant reference has been made to the diary of Sergt. S. M. Evans, the "Army Experience" of Capt. John Donaghy, and the Official Reports of the War Department. Sergt. Evans kept a daily record of the events of the Regiment during the first three years of the war; Capt. Donaghy prepared his "Army Experiences" from his diary a few years subsequent to the war, and any additions made were when his memory of the most vivid incidents must have been clear. The well known character of both gives assurance to their surviving comrades that any positive statement by either can be regarded as trustworthy. For the early history of the Regiment the correspondence filed in the archives of the State of Pennsylvania from the promoters, organizers and officers of the Regiment to the state officials have been carefully examined. So far as the company and individual records are incomplete the writer asks to be absolved from blame. He has spent much time both at the capital of the state and the capital of the nation examining the official records and has presented here everything pertinent to which He had access at either place. He is under special obligations to the Auditor for the War Department, B. F. Harper, and to Comrade S. E. Fannce. Chief of Records Division, in the Auditor's office, and to Hon. Thos. J. Stewart, Adjutant General of Pennsylvania, and his clerk. Comrade J. B. Stauffer; to James C. Deininger. of the State Department; also to the Commissioners of Pension. Hon. Vespasian Warner and Hon. J. L. Davenport, for valuable and courteous service in an endeavor to complete the individual records of the members of the Regiment.

Army of the Potomac

The third volume of this masterful Civil War history series covers the pivotal early months of General George McClellan’s Peninsula Campaign. As he did in his first two volumes of this magisterial series, Russel Beatie tells the story largely through the eyes and from the perspective of high-ranking officers, staff officers, and politicians. This study is based upon extensive firsthand research (including many previously unused and unpublished sources) that rewrites the history of Little Mac’s inaugural effort to push his way up the peninsula and capture Richmond in one bold campaign. In meticulous fashion, Beatie examines many heretofore unknown, ignored, or misunderstood facts and events and uses them to evaluate the campaign in the most balanced historical context to date. Every aspect of these critically important weeks is examined, from how McClellan’s Urbanna plan unraveled and led to the birth of the expedition that debarked at Fort Monroe in March 1862, to the aftermath of Williamsburg. To capture the full flavor of their experiences, Beatie employs the “fog of war” technique, which puts the reader in the position of the men who led the Union army. The Confederate adversaries are always present but often only in shadowy forms that achieve firm reality only when we meet them face-to-face on the battlefield. Well written, judiciously reasoned, and extensively footnoted, McClellan’s First Campaign will be heralded as the seminal work on this topic. Civil War readers may not always agree with Beatie’s conclusions, but they will concur that his account offers an original examination of the Army of the Potomac’s role on the Virginia peninsula. “If you want to understand the war in the east, this series is essential.” —Civil War Books and Authors

Confederate Rage  Yankee Wrath

This provocative study proves the existence of a de facto Confederate policy of giving no quarter to captured black combatants during the Civil War—killing them instead of treating them as prisoners of war. Rather than looking at the massacres as a series of discrete and random events, this work examines each as part of a ruthless but standard practice. Author George S. Burkhardt details a fascinating case that the Confederates followed a consistent pattern of murder against the black soldiers who served in Northern armies after Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation. He shows subsequent retaliation by black soldiers and further escalation by the Confederates, including the execution of some captured white Federal soldiers, those proscribed as cavalry raiders, foragers, or house-burners, and even some captured in traditional battles. Further disproving the notion of Confederates as victims who were merely trying to defend their homes, Burkhardt explores the motivations behind the soldiers’ actions and shows the Confederates’ rage at the sight of former slaves—still considered property, not men—fighting them as equals on the battlefield. Burkhardt’s narrative approach recovers important dimensions of the war that until now have not been fully explored by historians, effectively describing the systemic pattern that pushed the conflict toward a black flag, take-no-prisoners struggle.

Time Full of Trial

In February 1862, General Ambrose E. Burnside led Union forces to victory at the Battle of Roanoke Island. As word spread that the Union army had established a foothold in eastern North Carolina, slaves from the surrounding area streamed across Federal lines seeking freedom. By early 1863, nearly 1,000 refugees had gathered on Roanoke Island, working together to create a thriving community that included a school and several churches. As the settlement expanded, the Reverend Horace James, an army chaplain from Massachusetts, was appointed to oversee the establishment of a freedmen's colony there. James and his missionary assistants sought to instill evangelical fervor and northern republican values in the colonists, who numbered nearly 3,500 by 1865, through a plan that included education, small-scale land ownership, and a system of wage labor. Time Full of Trial tells the story of the Roanoke Island freedmen's colony from its contraband-camp beginnings to the conflict over land ownership that led to its demise in 1867. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources, Patricia Click traces the struggles and successes of this long-overlooked yet significant attempt at building what the Reverend James hoped would be the model for "a new social order" in the postwar South.
