Morgan was still an unreconstructed rebel when he wrote these memoirs. While there is little new to be learned from his Lost Cause arguments, his experiences of camp, battle, and famous people of the war do, nevertheless, provide a fascinating look into Confederate life in the American Civil War.Though not a member of the famous Morgan family of John Hunt Morgan (whom he never mentions in his memoir), W.H. of the 11th Virginia was on the front lines and eventually a prisoner of the hated Yankees. He provides a report of conditions prior to his release. Like many old soldiers, he also has tales of the humorous side of soldiering.In addition, he provides a view of important battles in which he was engaged from the Confederate side.For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above or download a sample.
