Sinopsis: Book by None

Críticas: "Scholarly publications dealing with the Civil War in the South Atlantic theater, especially in the sphere of military operations, still lag far behind those associated with the other major regions of conflict, making A Confederate Englishman a welcome addition to this sporadic literature."--Civil War Books and Authors "Feilden's frank and vivid letters have been rescued from several different sources. As a Confederate staff officer he traveled widely and experienced and observed much of military and civilian life in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida in the last years of the war. This book is a significant addition to our primary knowledge of the Confederate experience."--Clyde N. Wilson, University of South Carolina and editor of The Papers of John C. Calhoun "Henry Wemyss Feilden's Civil War letters spin an engaging tale of wartime deprivations in Charleston and of a love affair that led to a rewarding marriage that lasted for the rest of Feilden's long and eventful life. Feilden's astute recounting of events and personalities during his sojourn in the American South make his letters an important addition to the wealth of primary sources for that era."--Gordon C. Rhea, author of The Battle of the Wilderness, May 56, 1864; The Battles for Spotsylvania Court House and the Road to Yellow Tavern, May 7-12, 1864; and To the North Anna River: Grant and Lee, May 13-25, 1864 "Henry Feilden remains one of the most gallant and charming Englishmen ever to have crossed the Atlantic. As a foreign eyewitness, and volunteer in the Confederate army, his name should stand alongside that of Colonel Arthur Fremantle and Heros Von Borcke. This new edition of Feilden's letters is a deserving accolade to his contribution to Civil War history."--Amanda Foreman, author of A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War "This collection of letters from Henry Wemyss Feilden represents a valuable addition to the literature and raises awareness of this Englishman's unique experiences in Confederate uniform."-- Jonathan Newell, Blue & Gray Magazone, Vol. XXX, #5

Descripción University of South Carolina Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condición: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A Confederate Englishman presents for the first time the fascinating Civil War correspondence of Henry Wemyss Feilden (1838-1921), a young British officer who resigned his commission and ran the blockade to become a Confederate staff officer in Charleston, South Carolina. Editors W. Eric Emerson and Karen Stokes have compiled Feilden s letters to chart the history of his eventful career in the Confederacy from the time of his arrival in South Carolina in 1863 to the end of the war. Born the second son of the Baronet of Feniscowles, Feilden had experienced much before his arrival in America. As a young officer, he served during the Indian Mutiny and during the Second Opium War in China. His fascination and empathy with the Confederacy, however, propelled the young Englishman to risk his life to run the Federal blockade of Charleston. After traveling to Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederacy, to obtain a commission as captain in the Confederate Army, he returned to Charleston to serve on the staff of General P. G. T. Beauregard, whom he greatly admired. During the war Feilden married a young South Carolinian, Julia McCord. His witty, vivid, highly readable, and sometimes romantic letters to her offer a compelling view into the operations of the military department headquartered in Charleston, conditions and events in and around the besieged city, and the heart of a man in love. A Confederate Englishman provides the insight and perspective of Feilden s experiences with operations in the large and vital Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida during the war s final two years. After the war Feilden returned to England with his wife to resume his career in the British army, and later he became a noted Arctic explorer and naturalist. In addition to his Civil War correspondence, A Confederate Englishman features a selection of Feilden s letters from the early twentieth century that include his reflections on his extraordinary life, his service to the Confederacy, and his beloved wife of fifty-six years. Emerson s introduction examines Feilden s background and character and the reasons behind his choice to fight for the Confederacy. It also delves into Feilden s astute assessment of Confederate capabilities late in the war and his decision to benefit financially from blockade running. Nº de ref. del artículo: POW9781611171358
