In this unique collection of unusual and often bizarre true stories from the Civil War, Webb Garrison has gathered little-known anecdotes and colorful stories not found in textbooks or reference books. Rare curiosities include "newfangled" weapons, outrageous inaccuracies in the press, grisly tales of missing limbs, disguises, "jinxed" horses, hostage-taking, friendly fire casualties and the unperfected art of spying. Even seasoned history buffs will find new and fresh material about obscure characters and events, offered in brief, dramatic narratives. This rare glimpse behind the scenes of the Civil War includes a selected bibliography and index. Webb Garrison's fascinating collection reveals that with more than 3 million men in uniform during the Civil War, anything could happen...and often did.
