Last Stand in the Carolinas: The Battle of Bentonville by Mark L. Bradley

The Battle of Bentonville, in which Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's Confederates launched a massive assault against one wing of Gen. William T. Sherman's Federal army, was the military climax of the long overlooked but critical Carolinas Campaign. It was also the Southern Confederacy's final hurrah. Never again would the once-vaunted Army of Tennessee deploy and deliver a grand The Battle of Bentonville, in which Gen. Joseph E. Johnston's Confederates launched a massive assault against one wing of Gen. William T. Sherman's Federal army, was the military climax of the long overlooked but critical Carolinas Campaign. It was also the Southern Confederacy's final hurrah. Never again would the once-vaunted Army of Tennessee deploy and deliver a grand charge against the enemy. Never again would the major rivals of the Western Theater of the war, William T. Sherman and Joe Johnston, lock themselves in combat. The war that had dragged on year after bloody year drew to a close for these armies just thirty-six days after Bentonville, when Johnston surrendered his men at the Bennett farm house on April 26, 1865. Mark L. Bradley has written the definitive account of not only the Battle of Bentonville, but Sherman's entire Carolinas Campaign. With a flair for storytelling, Bradley weaves a compelling and thorough the Tar Heel State. His penetrating biographical sketches of the principle commanders on both sides introduce the readers to the fascinating cast of characters who found themselves deeply involved in one of the war's final dramas. Ultimately, however, this book is about the fighting at Bentonville. In sweeping detail, Bradley examines the intensive combat of March 19-21, 1865. Readers will find themselves carried along with the wind-whipped flags on the Army of Tennessee's final charge; in the muddy, hastily-dug trenches full of fighting and dying Union soldiers attempting to stem the tide of the bitter Southern attacks; and around both Union and Confederates campfires for a personal look at the war from the perspective of the men in the ranks.

The Battle of Monroe's Crossroads and the Civil War's Last Campaign by Eric J. Wittenberg , Mark L. Bradley (foreword)

The Battle of Monroe's Crossroads, fought March 10, 1865, was one of most important but least known engagements of William T. Sherman's Carolinas Campaign. Confederate cavalry, led by Lt. Gen. Wade Hampton and Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, launched a savage surprise attack on the sleeping camp of Maj. Gen. Judson Kilpatrick, Sherman's cavalry chief. After three hours of some o The Battle of Monroe's Crossroads, fought March 10, 1865, was one of most important but least known engagements of William T. Sherman's Carolinas Campaign. Confederate cavalry, led by Lt. Gen. Wade Hampton and Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, launched a savage surprise attack on the sleeping camp of Maj. Gen. Judson Kilpatrick, Sherman's cavalry chief. After three hours of some of the toughest cavalry fighting of the entire Civil War, Hampton broke off and withdrew. His attack, however, had stopped Kilpatrick's advance and bought another precious day for Lt. Gen. William J. Hardee to evacuate his command from Fayetteville. This, in turn, permitted Hardee to join the command of Gen. Joseph E. Johnston and set the stage for the climactic Battle of Bentonville nine days later. Noted Civil War author Eric Wittenberg has written the first detailed tactical narrative of this important but long-forgotten battle, and places it in its proper context within the entire campaign. His study features 28 original maps and 50 illustrations. Finally, an author of renown has brought to vivid life this overlooked portion of the Carolinas Campaign. Ohio Attorney Eric J. Wittenberg is a noted Civil War cavalry historian and the author of some dozen books and two dozens articles on the Civil War. His first book, "Gettysburg's Forgotten Cavalry Actions," won the 1998 Bachelder-Coddington Literary Award.
