1800-987-323 The Confederate Alamo: Bloodbath at Petersburg's Fort Gregg on April 2, 1865 (English) by John J. III Fox

Format Hardcover

Condition Brand New

Language English

Robert E. Lee faced the most monumental crisis of his military career on the morning of April 2, 1865. By sunrise that morning, the Union 6th Corps had punched a huge hole in Lees outer line, southwest of Petersburg. He needed time for reinforcements to arrive from Richmond, but how could his depleted army buy that time? Amidst overwhelming odds, this suicide mission fell to a handful of Confederates who made a desperate last stand at Fort Gregg. Douglas Southall Freeman called this epic fight one of the most dramatic incidents of an overwhelming day, and yet it has been overshadowed by all the other historic events of April 1865. Fourteen Union soldiers received the Medal of Honor for their bravery at Fort Gregg. Many battle-scarred veterans from both sides described this clash as the nastiest of their four-year war experience.

Review

"This is a powerfully written story and will make you proud of the Americans that fought for the Blue and Gray." The Lone Star Book Review, August 2010. "Fox has done an excellent job tracking down quite a number of unpublished primary sources on both sides and alternates between a tactical overview and the soldiers-eye perspective." "This handsome volume is a great example of the sort of polished, professionally done book that is coming out of some of the better small presses today." Fred Ray, TOCWOC- A Civil War blog, July 23, 2010, and author of "Shock Troops of the Confederacy".
