“In most standard texts on the Civil War, Mobile appears only in reference to the famous Battle of Mobile Bay. It is thus refreshing to find a work that illuminates the complete war years of this major southern city. . . . Confederate Mobile is an indispensable and thoroughly researched volume on Mobile’s role in the Confederacy. . . . It will prove an invaluable guide to anyone wishing to understand wartime Mobile and the military maneuvers involved in defending the important southern port.”—Florida Historical Quarterly
“Bergeron’s depiction of this colorful port city and how it reacted to the throes of war is a landmark in Civil War history.”—History Book Club Review
