Review:

"Awarded the 2002 Seaborg Civil War Prize." --



"An indispensable source for an understanding of the events in Kentucky in the fall of 1862, when Braxton Bragg's Southern soldiers fought courageously to achieve what turned out to be the 'high water mark' of the western Confederacy." -- America's Civil War



"Full of facts, details, and descriptions of the battle, but it also contains vivid descriptions of the soldiers and civilians caught in the wake of the battle making it interesting reading for not only the avid Civil War buff, but the casual reader." -- Back Home in Kentucky



"For anyone seriously interested in the Civil War in Kentucky, Noe's books is a must buy. It should remain the definitive work of the Perryville campaign for many years." -- Bowling Green Daily News



"Noe has authored the essential book on this battle." -- Civil War Book Review



"About as detailed as it can get regarding this long-overlooked and recently discovered Civil War battle for Kentucky." -- Civil War Courier



"None of the professional works that touch on Perryville... can offer the breadth of perspective and the innovative investigation that inform Noe's Perryville." -- Civil War History



"An exceptional book. Buffs and serious scholars alike will enjoy what should be the definitive work on this battle for some time to come." -- Civil War News



"A conversational, easy-to-follow style with vivid imagery, Perryville clearly sets out the battle lines and savagery that took place there." -- Danville Advocate-Messenger



"Does a masterful job of placing the Battle of Perryville, and Kentucky more generally, in the context of the Civil War and southern history." -- Filson History Quarterly

Book Description The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Winner of the Seaborg Award A History Book Club SelectionOn October 8, 1862, Union and Confederate forces clashed near Perryville, Kentucky, in what would be the largest battle ever fought on Kentucky soil. The climax of a campaign that began two months before in northern Mississippi, Perryville came to be recognized as the high water mark of the western Confederacy. Some said the hard-fought battle, forever remembered by participants for its sheer savagery and for their commanders' confusion, was the worst battle of the war, losing the last chance to bring the Commonwealth into the Confederacy and leaving Kentucky firmly under Federal control. Although Gen. Braxton Bragg's Confederates won the day, Bragg soon retreated in the face of Gen. Don Carlos Buell's overwhelming numbers. Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle is the definitive account of this important conflict.While providing all the parry and thrust one might expect from an excellent battle narrative, the book also reflects the new trends in Civil War history in its concern for ordinary soldiers and civilians caught in the slaughterhouse. The last chapter, unique among Civil War battle narratives, even discusses the battle's veterans, their families, efforts to preserve the battlefield, and the many ways Americans have remembered and commemorated Perryville.

Book Description The University Press of Kentucky, United States, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Kentucky attracted an amazing variety of would-be settlers in pioneer days, but none with brighter talent than John James Audubon. Although his years in the state came long before publication of the monumental Birds of America, he was already painting the scenes from nature that were to make him famous. Audubon: The Kentucky Years is the captivating account of Audubon's sojourn in Kentucky from his arrival in in 1807 as a gregarious twenty-two-year-old storekeeper to his departure in 1819, when his failure in business was about to force him to seek a livelihood from his skill as an artist.
