about

Banners to the Breeze analyzes three major Civil War campaigns that were conducted following a series of devastating Confederate defeats at the hands of Ulysses S. Grant in the spring of 1862. After the recapture of Tennessee, Confederate armies under Braxton Bragg and Edmund Kirby Smith conducted a brilliant advance into the deeply divided state of Kentucky. Meanwhile, other Confederate forces under Sterling Price and Earl Van Dorn attempted to recapture the town of Corinth, Mississippi. As the year drew to a close, Bragg’s army was involved in a tactical draw at the battle of Stones River. Earl J. Hess mixes dramatic narrative and new analysis as he brings these campaigns together in a coherent whole. Previously unpublished historic photographs of the battlefields are included.
Earl J. Hess is an associate professor of history at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. He is the author of The Union Soldier in Battle: Enduring the Ordeal of Combat and other works. For related information, please visit http://www.love-and-learning.info/

Editorial Reviews

"A well-written book. It is informative and objective. The author comments on the shortcomings of both sides with sound reasoning. His descriptions of the movements of the various forces are detailed and point out the difficulties encountered. This book contains far more than just the stories of these three battles. I recommend this excellent book to all Civil War readers."—Duane A. Benell, Civil War Courier - Duane A. Benell - Civil War Courier
