Recommended Reading: Lieutenant General Jubal Anderson Early: Autobiographical Sketch And Narrative Of The War Between The States (1912) (548 pages). Description: General Early, referred to as "Old Jube," was well-known for his fighting prowess in the Valley Campaigns of 1864 and his attempt to capture Washington. In Early's own words, he reflects on the battles of the war, as well as the war itself. The 54th North Carolina served under his command for most of the Civil War. Continued.
It begins with Early's account of his attempts to thwart Virginia's secession attempts, his failure in that endeavor, and his decision to join the Confederate army. He then describes his military experiences, the typical lives of soldiers, his responsibilities as an officer, and several military engagements. The final chapter includes a letter from General Robert E. Lee and the editor's summary of Early's life after the war ended in 1865. Early's Autobiographical Sketch and other writings proved to play a very important historical role; in fact in American National Biography, Gary Gallagher asserts, "No person North or South did more to influence nineteenth-century historiography of the Civil War."
