“A New Orleans soldier’s personal account of the best and the worst of war.”—Maine Sunday Telegram

This edition of Napier Bartlett’s 1875 memoir makes again available a valuable resource on Louisiana troops’ participation in the Civil War. Bartlett served throughout the war in Louisiana’s elite Washington Artillery and fought in many battles in Virginia and the East. He later wrote an engaging account of his experiences, A Soldier’s Story of the War, which constitutes a substantial portion of this book. The balance of the volume provides much detailed information and official data concerning Louisiana units in the Confederate Army, including muster rolls, lists of casualties and the cemeteries where they were buried, and company journals. 

T. Harry Williams (19091979) was Boyd Professor of History at Louisiana State University. He won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for Huey Long: A Biography. Among his other works are Lincoln and His Generals, With Beauregard in Mexico, Romance and Realism in Southern Politics, and Americans at War: The Development of the American Military System.
