The North Carolina Presence at Gettysburg (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1930)

This article, from Confederate Veteran Magazine, presented the drama of events as they unfolded on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg with an eye to specifically telling the tale of the North Carolina regiments and the part they played as the battle was taking shape. The author, Captain S.A. Ashe (author of the 1902 book, "The charge at Gettysburg") explained thoroughly which Confederate and Federal units arrived first at Gettysburg and at what hour, while indulging in just a little Monday morning quarterbacking:

"If General Longstreet, with his very fine corps, had struck the Federals early the next morning, there probably never would have been a third day at Gettysburg."

 

Black Mammy (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1918)

Those sensitive beta-males in the editorial offices of CONFEDERATE VETERAN were teary-eyed and waxing winsome that day in 1918 when they saw fit to recall one particular long-standing Southern institution that was "gone with the wind":

"The most unique character connected with the days of slavery was the old black mammy, who held a position of and confidence in nearly every white family of importance in the South... She was an important member of the household, and for her faithfulness and devotion she has been immortalized in the literature of the South."

 

The Confederate Error on the First Day (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1923)

Alabama native John Purifoy was a regular contributor to Confederate Veteran Magazine and he wrote most often about the Battle of Gettysburg; one of his most often sited articles concerned the roll artillery played throughout the course of that decisive contest.

In the attached four page article Purifoy summarized some of the key events from a rebel perspective. In the last paragraph he pointed out the one crucial error Lee soon came to regret- take a look.

 

''The African-Confederates'' (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1922)

By the time this small paragraph appeared in the 1922 pages of Confederate Veteran Magazine the vast majority of their readership was living on their Confederate pensions. This article serves to remind the subscribers that there were numerous "faithful Negroes" who were also deserving of same. The author recounts a few stories of the devotion he witnessed.

In 2012, The Enquirer-Journal, news organ of Union County, North Carolina, ran an interesting article about a monument that was erected in that community celebrating the memory of ten men who "were Union County's Confederate Pensioners of Color, nine slaves and one free person." - Click here to read the article on their website...

 

Corn on the March (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1918)

Forty-three years after the bloody end of the American Civil War, this reminiscence by a Southern officer appeared in print recalling the important roll that corn played during those days as it had throughout all American history:

"During the war I commanded the 1st Arkansas Regiment, consisting of twelve hundred men, and during the four years we never saw a piece of bread that contained a grain of wheat flower. We lived entirely on plain corn bread, and my men were strong and kept the best of health...."

 

Civil War Reunion Clothing (Confederate Veteran Magazine, 1922)

What did the smart, re-constructed Confederate soldier wear to the reunions, you ask? Why an eight buttoned sack coat with matching trousers composed of Dixie Gray wool, of course! It was all the rage among the apple-sauce crowd of 1922 - and by clicking the link below you will see a black and white ad from "Confederate Veteran Magazine" which pictured the togs.

 

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."

"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."
