Description
In the mid-19th century John Crawford Vaughn was one of the most famous men in Tennessee. He was the first man to raise a regiment in the state and the last Confederate general in the eastern theater to surrender. Military analyst Larry Gordon follows the often-maligned Vaughn and his East Tennessee Cavalry to Manassas, Vicksburg, and other crucial battles, telling the story from Vaughn's perspective and discussing both his strengths and his weaknesses. He portrays Vaughn as a staunch secessionist, a close friend to Jefferson Davis and his senior escort at the end of the war, and one of the few Confederate generals to return to Tennessee, where he became president of the state senate.

"The Last Confederate General is a fine read for anyone: Action, adventure, love, drama, war and perseverance—what more can you ask for in a book? Five stars for Larry Gordon for a job well done ... a fascinating story of courage, determination and self worth."—OurHistoryProject.com

"Modern reappraisals of maligned Civil War figures like Confederate General John Crawford Vaughn often attempt to even the score by either going too far in the other direction or attacking the subject's critics. Fortunately, Charles Larry Gordon's The Last Confederate General avoids such tactics, and instead attempts a balanced, 'warts and all' portrait of the man.... The Last Confederate General is a largely sympathetic yet evenhanded appraisal of the checkered military career of John C. Vaughn. In addition to the narrative account of the general's military service, the lengthy biographical sketch is useful, both as a portrait of a neglected Civil War figure and a personalized example of the deep divisions within East Tennessee politics and society."—Civil War Books & Authors
