Recommended Reading: The Fifty-Eighth North Carolina Troops: Tar Heels in the Army of Tennessee. Description: North Carolina, commonly referred to as the Tar Heel State, contributed more than 70 regiments to Confederate service during the bloody Civil War, but only four of those regiments were permanently assigned to service in the Army of Tennessee. The Fifty-Eighth North Carolina Troops, hailing primarily from the North Carolina mountains, fought from the fiercely contested Battle of Chickamauga (second bloodiest battle in the Civil War - the first being Gettysburg) to the pitched Battle of Bentonville, North Carolina, against General William Sherman (Sherman's March to the Sea and subsequent March through the Carolinas). Continued below...
This battle-hardened Unit also served under generals such as "Harry" Heth and D. H. Hill, brother-in-law to General "Stonewall" Jackson. This detailed history of the 58th North Carolina is based upon letters, diaries, battle reports, and post-war reminisces composed by men who served in the regiment. It is their story. In chronicling their experiences, Hardy consulted modern battlefield studies, and even visited each of the places where they fought. This interesting book contains maps, photographs, rosters, and information on where they fought, where they camped, and even what they ate. This fascinating account follows the rugged soldiers from conscription to battlefield to readjustment to antebellum life. About the Author: Michael C. Hardy, also of North Carolina mountain ancestry, has written numerous books, articles and essays focusing on the Civil War. He has even won the Willie Parker Peace History Book Award a breathtaking six times, and he has also been presented the Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal by the United Daughters of the Confederacy for his work on preserving Confederate history. Michael resides in the majestic North Carolina mountains, and he continues to travel the Old North State researching and lecturing a variety of Civil War subjects.
