One of the greatest Military minds of his time had his life cut short at the Battle of Shiloh, General Albert Sidney Johnston. It is my humble opinion that had he survived his injury on that fateful day there would be two Nations in North America today.

One General of the Confederacy had a hug impact on the tactics of later wars, Lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Many have tried to run this mans reputation through the mud and such but he was above it all. Read about this man and learn the truth. He put everything he had on the line at every turn of his life.

 One of the best books I have ever read concerning the life of the ordinary soldier of the Confederacy. It is a good read too!
"Co. Aytch" by Samuel R. Watkins
 The title of this one, and the name of its author says more than I can here. SO I leave it to him:
 His son compiled this work to help the world understand his father better. All of this just through his letters. One of the many areas people do not remember was the fact the American Indians DID get involved in the war! They fought on both sides. This book take a decent look at the Trans-Mississippi Indians and what they did. Well work a read!!!

The Gray Book- The first serious attacks on Confederate Heritage on a national level commenced at the onset of WWI. As a form of propaganda, many compared Germany to the Confederacy. In answer to these unfounded attacks, the SCV published the Gray Book. It is a great resource still for setting the record straight.
