Description
One of the most successful combat officers in the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War, Francis Channing Barlow had a clean-shaven, youthful appearance that earned him the nickname "the Boy General," even as his fighting capabilities resulted in frequent promotions and greater responsibilities. Intelligent, ambitious, and confident, Barlow graduated as valedictorian of the Harvard Class of 1855 and launched a legal career in New York. When Lincoln sent out a call for volunteers following the bombardment of Fort Sumter, Barlow dropped his practice and entered the U.S. Army as a private; following the war, he resumed his law practice and entered the political arena. Richard Welch gives us the first full-length biography of Barlow, drawing heavily on primary sources.
