Features:
  • Moral Victory in the Crusade To Clear Mudd. Dr. Samuel Mudd was sentenced to life in prison and almost hanged for conspiring to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. A moot appellate court recently ruled on his conviction. Did Mudd's defense lawyer, the renowned F. Lee Bailey, convince the judges his "client" was innocent?
  • Jeff Davis' Living Tomb. Confederate President Jefferson Davis spend half a year locked in a cramped stone cell at Fort Monroe. Visitors can see that dark chamber and other Civil War-related curiosities at the Virginia fort's Casemate Museum
  • "I'll Live Yet to Dance on That Foot" No man is invulnerable, but some come closer than others. A Civil War Achilees, Colonel Charles Blacknall shrugged off numerous battle wounds and came charging back to the skirmish line, vowing to fight until the south was free.
  • The Beast of New Orleans. Bejamin Butler's most obvious attribute was ugliness, but beneath that repulsive exterior lurked an intelligent, shrewd, and politically well-connected general
  • Custer's Long Summer. With the war all but over, George Custer's Union cavalrymen were ready to return to their families. When sent to Louisiana instead, they began to turn on their superiors. Mutiny loomed.
  • Gunboats of the Upper Tennessee. If Union troops could capture Chattanooga, Tennessee, they might be able to march through Georgia and Alabama and control half the South. But first they would need a gunboat - fast.

  • Gettysburg: A Battle Becomes a Movie.
  • Libblie's Table. The widow Custer prized a table her husband George had given her at the end of the Civil War. Confederate Ulysses S. Grant had signed "the surrender" on it - or had he?
  • Special Book Excerpt: General James Longstreet. During the Civil War, Longstreet was respected by his superiors and men. Later, he was ostracized by old comrades. Was he a good soldier? This book examines the question.
  • Betwixt Wind and Water. It's the battle over a battle. Victors in the fight for Fort Pillow stand accused of murder. It's the story of the "massacre" above Memphis.
  • We Will Stand By You. A slave dealer, a Klansman, a mand accused of allowing the murder of black troops, General Forrest did not appear to be a friend to black Americans. But he thought he was.
  • Georgia's Endangered Gunboats. Visit the Confederate Naval Museum and see two Rebel gunboats on display
