7 Barefoot, Daniel W. General Robert F. Hoke: Lee's Modest Warrior.

Signed and inscribed by the author. Octavo, cloth & boards (hardcover), xvii + 452 pp. Fine, in a Fine, mylar protected dust jacket. From dust jacket: Neglected by modern historians, Robert F. Hoke was a towering figure in his time. Mustered into Confederate service as a second lieutenant in April 1861, he was a major within five months, a lieutenant colonel within nine months, a colonel within sixteen months, a brigadier general within two years, and a major general within three years -- becoming, at age twenty-six, the youngest Southern officer of that rank in the Civil War. Of the 125,000 men his state contributed to the Confederate cause, it was Hoke who was called “the North Carolina Lee” and “the most distinguished solider of North Carolina.” In a face-to-face meeting after the war, U. S. Grant admired that Hoke had administed “the worst drubbing I ever got,” at Cold Harbor. He fought in nearly every significant battle in the Eastern theater - Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Plymouth, Petersburg, Richmond, Cold Harbor, Fort Fisher, Bentonville. He witnessed the first Confederate casualty at Bethel and provided the rear guard as Joseph E. Johnston met Sherman at Bennett Farm to arrange the last surrender. Back home, Hoke hitched his war-horse to a plow and quietly set about rebuildilng the South, a cause that later inspired him to leadership positions in industry. A private man, he declined every honor offered him by North Carolinaians, including the governorship...

From dust jacket: Throughout history, from antiquity to the present, service in the armed forces of one's country has provided the veteran with an almost endless source of material to entertain and even enlighten his listeners. Military life has usually been a unique and peculiar experience for most civilians exposed to it. In “Hard Tack and Coffee” the everyday life of the footsoldier in the U. S. Army of one hundred years ago is presented in a fascinating and fully illustrated account... Its author, John Billings, had served with the Army of The Potomac during the Civil War. He joined forces with the illustrator, Charles Reed, and utilized the many sketches of field life Reed had made during the Civil War to enliven an already facsinating text with pen and ink drawings of all aspects of a soldier's life. Included in this long out-of-print classic are chapters on living quarters, foraging, wagon trains, offences and punishments, equipment, transportation, food, hospitals and much more. This is a detailed comprehensive, highly abosrbing and informative resource on the common soldier's life in the Civil War army.
