A highly regarded resource on a critical aspect of the Civil War
This enlarged edition of Cannoneers in Gray provides new detail concerning the activities of artillery units operating in key campaigns of the western theater of the Civil War—at Stones River, Missionary Ridge, Kennesaw Mountain, Shiloh, Peachtree Creek. Larry Daniel traces the four-year history of the artillery branch of the Army of Tennessee from its organization through its demise at the war's end. He shows that Civil War cannons were of little consequence when used as offensive weapons but could be highly effective in defense.
Includes five new maps of campaigns and battles central to his discussion of larger issues, such as command and strategy on the western front.
Larry J. Daniel is author of Days of Glory: The Army of the Cumberland, 1861-1865, Shiloh: The Battle That Changed the Civil War, and Island No. 10: Key to the Mississippi Valley. Daniel lives in Murray, Kentucky, where he is the minister of First United Methodist Church.
Praise for the First Edition
“A delightful surprise. Daniel has made a significant contribution to our knowledge of Civil War history—no easy task. Major strengths of the book are the sources discovered and used by Daniel and his ability to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the artillery as well as the way that it was used.”
—Grady McWhiney, author of Attack and Die: Civil War Military Tactics and the Southern Heritage
“For Civil War enthusiasts who prefer the Western campaigns, for Southern partisans, academics, wargamers, or today’s military personnel, this book should be must reading.”
—Blue & Gray
