Part of the attraction of the movie starring Tom Hanks revolves around all the personalities encountered and places visited, amid an endless stream of experiences... almost too many to be believed. Now imagine a Civil War tale that revolves around Confederate Department No.2 and includes visits to Memphis, Fort Pillow and Fort Columbus; participation in the Battle of Belmont; duty at Bowling Green (with subsequent evacuation through Nashville to Corinth.) Having met, or become acquainted, with Albert Sidney Johnston, William Hardee and Leonidas Polk, Sergeant William Stevenson is assigned as special ADC to General Breckinridge and acts as courier, delivering reports to Johnston and Beauregard at Shiloh... Thirteen Months in the Rebel Army by William G. Stevenson was published in New York by A.S. Barnes & Burr in September 1862 ...after New Yorker-by-birth Stevenson was able to sever his connection with the Confederate Cause and flee north in June 1862.

It is not often that I am so taken with a book that I feel the need to read it again... This is one of those books -- Ozzy.
