Benning's Brigade: Volume 1


A History and Roster of the Fifteenth Georgia

A history and roster of the individual regiments which comprised Benning's Brigade. First and primarily, the book is intended to accurately reflect the composition, strength, and disposition of the brigade, chronologically, throughout the Civil War, from its inception to its ultimate demobilization. Secondly, the narrative is filled with excerpts from diaries, journals, correspondence, and reports from the officers and men that wrote them. These personal reflections are intended to provide the reader with an intimate and uniquely southern perspective of the American Civil War.

A detailed analysis of the brigade at the regimental and company level provides an accurate graphic and historical representation, and the roster of the regiment highlights each soldier individually. More than half the regiment did not survive the war; however, their legacy survived and they are forever an integral part of our American heritage. Numerous vintage photographs, maps and charts augment the text.
