Maryland in the Civil War: An Annotated Bibliography
Maryland in the Civil War: An Annotated Bibliography - Steven B. Rhodes. The sources collected in this book are representative of Maryland’s experience in the Civil War and a valuable guide for anyone interested in Maryland’s heritage. Numerous historical works have been published in which the major battles in Maryland are remembered and studied, but the same may not be said of Maryland’s people. Maryland contributed men to both sides of the war, but produced no Lee or Stuart, no Grant, Sherman or Sheridan. With the exception of Harriet Tubman and Raphael Semmes, those Marylanders who achieved notoriety in their lifetimes are largely forgotten. Ask the average person if they know of John Reese Kenly, Bradley T. Johnson, Harry Gilmore, the men of the 1st Maryland Infantry (U.S.), the Maryland Cavalry (C.S.A.), or the 7th United States Colored Troops and few will respond. Still, if not well remembered, the Maryland men and women of the Civil War are not lost. Their lives are preserved in published works; or, resting in archives and libraries. This book will help you find them. The author’s passion for his subject shines through in his fascinating “Introduction: A Historiography of Maryland in the Civil War,” which precedes the listings. Sections include: Published Sources, Broadsides, and Manuscripts. An index to full-names, places and subjects adds to the value of this work. 2015, 7x10, paper, index, 570 pp.
