about

Though he had served with distinction during the Civil War, it was Porter Alexanders memoirs that have kept his name alive today. Though many prominent officers on both sides wrote memoirs, Porter Alexanders were among the most insightful and often considered by historians as the most evenhanded. With a sense of humor and a good narrative, Porter Alexander skillfully narrates the war, his service, and he isnt afraid to criticize officers, including Lee, when he thought they had made mistakes. As a result, historians continue to rely heavily on his memoirs as a source for Civil War history. This account of the Petersburg Campaign comes from Alexanders memoirs, Military Memoirs of a Confederate: A Critical Narrative. In addition to discussing his participation during that campaign, Porter Alexander also discusses the battles and campaigns out west in the Fall of 1864, including Shermans Atlanta Campaign. It is specially formatted with a Table of Contents, images and maps of the Petersburg Campaign, and pictures of Alexander.
