Description
As a young New England intellectual, Francis Channing Barlow counted Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Russell Lowell Jr., and Winslow Homer's family among his friends. He enlisted with the Union army in April 1861 at the age of 26, and though originally untrained in military science, ended the Civil War as one of the North's premier combat generals. Barlow played key roles at Antietam, Spotsylvania, and Petersburg, and suffered two serious wounds in combat. Left for dead at Gettysburg, Barlow survived the war and later served as New York's Secretary of State and Attorney General. Superbly edited by Christian Samito, Barlow's letters not only illuminate the life of a talented battlefield commander; they also fill a gap in Civil War scholarship by providing a valuable window into Northern intellectual responses to the war.

"Through explanatory passages and extensive notes that accompany Barlow's letters, Christian Samito sheds new light on the life of a major general. The letters, which span the entire war, trace the development of Northern intellectuals' perspective on the war and military life. The book illustrates how a young man, unskilled in military science, eventually became one of the North's strongest combat leaders, and a postwar politician."Civil War Book Review
