WITH THE SOUTHA HISTORY OF THE LATE REBELLION WITH BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES OF LEADING STATESMAN AND DISTINGUISHED NAVEL AND MILITARY COMMANDERS, ETC. BY ROBERT TOMES, M.D. VOLUME II CIRCA 1866This is volume II only of an original three volume set. It begins with the final months of 1861 and covers the Civil War through the end of 1862. During that year Confederate Generals Stonewall Jackson and Robert E.. Lee emerge as leaders. Following General Joseph E. Johnston's severe injuries at the battle of Seven Pines, Lee moves into command of the Army of Northern Virginia. At the Second Battle of Manassas Lee faced General John Pope for a victory that pushed Abraham Lincoln to grudgingly call back George B. McClellan for leadership. General Lee's invasion of the North is checked by McClellan at the Battle of Antietam in Maryland. In the bloodiest single day of the Civil War, Union casualties are 2, 108 killed and 9, 549 wounded; Confederate casualties are 2, 700 killed and 9,029 wounded. When McClellan fails to pursue Lee after the battle, he is permanently removed from command. General Stonewall Jackson and 18,000 troops successfully pinned down two
armies with more than twice as many soldiers in the Shenandoah Valley of
Virginia. As the war continued,
abolitionists and African-American leaders like Frederick Douglass
pressured the president to recognize abolishing slavery as the central
issue. Lincoln had insisted that the conflict was about preserving the
Union, not about slavery, but five days after the battle of Antietam, he
issued the Emancipation Proclamation. The Emancipation Proclamation changes the ethical object of the war, making it unlikely that
England or France would aid the South.Chapter I begins with the words:"Kentucky was destined to become a chief battle-field from its position as a border State - bounded on the north by the loyal States of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, and on the east, south and west by Virginia, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Missouri, more or less within the power of the enemy - from the conflict of opinion among its own citizens and its relation geographically to the Mississippi, the great channel of intercourse between the northern lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. Both antagonists, conscious of the importance of holding the supremacy in a State thus situated, made great efforts to secure This book is circa 147 years old! and is in Good antique condition.

Gun-boats were stationed at all points on the river, from its northern banks to the Gulf of Mexico, where there was danger of molestation from guerrillas. The Admiral could thus proudly declare that 'vessels need not wait for convoy.'
