James Kendall Hosmer was a Civil War-era American historian who is remembered for books on American politics and the development in the American south. One of his best works was ‘The Color-Guard’ which, according to Nevins, is

“an excellent and even-tempered memoir of Army life in Louisiana’.

In it, Hosmer describes Confederate and Union camp life, descriptions and observations of the carnage of war, the role of the negro in various troops, and various strategies used in combat.
