Sons of Confederate Veterans
  • The latest book from the Kennedy brothers. Jefferson Davis was a proponent of the high road to emancipation. He looked to the day in which slaves would be prepared to live within and participate in a democratic society. He did more than advocate for the high road to emancipation - as this book documents, he practiced his belief in the ultimate emancipation of Southern slaves. Many of his former slaves left for posterity their testimony about their former master - a master who prepared them for freedom as self-sustaining members of society. The North's ruling elites justified their invasion, conquest, and occupation of the Confederate States of America by declaring that the South was fighting to preserve slavery and that secession was treason. After the unfortunate end of the War for Southern Independence, the United States arrested Jefferson Davis on charges of treason. Davis demanded a trial, yet the United States never brought Davis to trial - why? Were they afraid they would lose in court? Davis, and through him the South, was unjustly tried in the court of public opinion - a court controlled by the North's ruling elites. This book gives the defense that Davis and the South never had.

  • ONLY ONE COPY AVAILABLE - EXCELLENT CONDITION! Hardback. The military events surrounding the frontier village of Westport, Missouri, during the autumn of 1864 were part of a Confederate raid that exceeded any Civil War cavalry raid. The climax of a last-ditch Confederate invasion of Missouri, the battle ended forever the bitter fighting that had devastated the Missouri-Kansas border. First published more than thirty years ago and now available with a new introduction and notes that update the text, Action Before Westport presents the only full account of that most unusual and daring Civil War battle. In addition to incorporating official records, newspaper accounts, letters, diaries, journals, and privately printed records, Monnett consulted several previously undiscovered manuscripts, two of them the work of key Confederate generals in the raid. The result is a classic work that is both immensely readable and impressive in its documentation.

  • A Southern Soldier Boy (hardback)-The Diary of Sergeant Beaufort Simpson Buzhardt 1838-1862. Annotated and Edited by H.V. Traywick, Jr. The wartime diary of a Confederate infantryman who served from the outbreak of the War Between the States until he was killed in one of the Seven Days' Battles near Richmond in 1862.

Augustus Dickert's "History of Kershaw's Brigade" to put the diary into a broader context. Chapters include South Carolina's secession, the call to arms and the march to Virginia, the first Battle of Manassas, winter quarters in Northern Virginia, the Peninsula Campaign and the Seven Days' Battles around Richmond. This work gives the reader a portrait of Southern hopes in the early days of the War and introduces to the reader the stormy birth of General Lee's legendary Army of Northern Virginia.
