Two works on important American military and political figures – Joseph Johnston and Jefferson Davis



Joseph E. Johnston was a 19th-century American Army officer who served as a Confederate States Army general, even though he trained at West Point. However, his military acumen was wrecked and constantly criticized by Confederate President Jefferson Davis – with whom Johnston was very displeased. Following his service time as a military officer, Johnston wrote and published his own memoirs – memoirs which were mostly attacks on President Davis and other officers, as well as defending his own actions and decisions during the Civil War.



In Tall Cotton says of this work:

“A vigorous defense of his own actions and necessarily, therefore, a hard-hitting attack on others, particularly on President Davis against whom he records his objections to excess.”



According to Nevins, this work is

“one of the earliest Confederate reminiscences; strongly partisan, anti-Davis, and defensive in tone.”



Per Eicher,

“This is one of the early classic narratives by a senior commanding general of the Confederate armies. Bitterly partisan and constructed to attack the credibility of charges brought against him… The estimates of troops are way off… he sometimes confuses events, as with several incidents in the Vicksburg campaign.”



This 1890 first edition account of the life of Jefferson Davis was published quickly following the Confederate Presidents death in December of 1889. This book covers all of the important military endeavors of Davis from the War in Mexico, Battle of Buena Vista, his appointment in the U.S. Senate, and his election as president of the Confederate States of America. This book also includes important sections on the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and the emancipation of southern slaves.
