about

Includes Civil War Map and Illustrations Pack – 224 battle plans, campaign maps and detailed analyses of actions spanning the entire period of hostilities.
General Boggs was a native of Georgia and after much service as an engineer in the pre-war army resigned his command when his home state succeeded from the Union. He was appointed to organize defences, purchase arms and complete defences, serving in South Carolina, Georgia and Trans-Mississippi theaters. An upright passionate man, his memoirs are peppered with accounts of his forthright disagreements with his superiors. He also comments on his attempts to combat the inertia of the Confederate bureaucracy, which were often in vain, and his opposition to the pilfering and plundering that dogged the war efforts.
This book offers a fascinating insight into the disagreements that dogged the Confederate effort in the Western theater of operations during the Civil War.
