OCLC: 4539717 The author describes several of the most important battles of the Civil War and with the vivid detail of first hand account. Berry first saw active service in Mexico in 1846. During his service in the Confederate Army he was captured 13 times, sent to prison seven times and escaped while on the way to prison six times and was twice under death sentence when he escaped. While in prison in Talahome, Tennessee Dr. Berry made his escape made his escape in a lightning and thunderstorm just 15 minutes before the time set for his execution. His second escape was made from Louisville, KY. This Confederate veteran who was surgeon general of the Oklahoma division of the United Confederate Veterans, had a war record, including service in foreign nations, likely unequaled by his peers. He participated in many of the most important engagements that decided the great civil strife, has a vivd recollection of numerous important incidents as well as valuable personal recollections of the characteristics of some of the most noted generals and commanders of the Confederate Army. Includes Morgan's invasion into Indiana, Chickamauga, Rock Island prison, serving with General Jo Shelby in Mexico and much more.
