Civil War History

               Civil War History Film Clips

A Boy in the Union Army (Coronet Magazine, 1960)

"During the Civil War many young boys enlisted. In fact, three out of every ten men on the Union side were under 21, and not until 1864 did Congress pass a law forbidding the enlistment of of anyone under 16. But Johnny Clem, who joined up at ten, had them all beaten."

- Indeed he did. In fact, at the age of 12, Johnny Clem was a hero.

Five thumbnail portraits of the most consistently victorious generals of the American Civil War; three Union and two Confederate:

Ulysses S. Grant

Was Mrs. Surratt Innocent? (Newsweek Magazine, 1943)

Here is the book review for The Case For Mrs. Surratt (1945) by Helen Jones Campbell. The review narrates how the landlady who had the misfortune of renting a room to the Lincoln conspirators soon found herself swept up in the pervasive Confederate hatred that enveloped the capital city following the assassination. In no time at all she sat among the plotters in a military tribunal where she was quickly judged guilty and sentenced to hang. The book is still in print.

More on the assassination can be read here

 

The Bad Generals (Pageant Magazine, 1958)

Attached herein is a list the five lamest Generals of the American Civil War.

This two page compilation is made up of thumbnail descriptions outlining just how far from awesome these men were, and why, one hundred years later, they continue to be recognized as failures to the succeeding generations of Civil War historians.

 

The Rebel Conscription Problem (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1918)

"It has been said that the Confederate States passed the most drastic conscript law on record, which may be true; but it is a mistake to suppose that this law was successfully executed."

- from Amazon:

"The [Conscription] act, April 16, 1862, embraced men between eighteen and thirty-five years; the second, of September 27 1862, men between eighteen and forty-five; the third and last, of February 17, 1864, men between seventeen and fifty."

The Confederate Chaplains (Confederate Veteran Magazine

"A chaplain's proper place in the Confederate Army was well defined in theory at least, but in fact each of us was a law unto himself and stayed wherever he liked. He belonged to the medical staff. But the medical staff in a campaign is divided... The regulation spot was with the surgeons."
