After the war, Confederate Johnson founded the Texas town of Marble Falls. This memoir was first published in 1904. The title of this book is somewhat deceptive, in that this is not a history of the entire Confederate Partisan Ranger Corps. Rather, this is a good book that recounts the organization of Johnson's 10th Kentucky Cavalry, the little known actions that took place in Western Kentucky during 1862, and the service of the unit under General John Hunt Morgan.

Adam Rankin "Stovepipe" Johnson (February 6, 1834 – October 20, 1922) was an antebellum Western frontiersman and later an officer in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War. Johnson obtained notoriety leading the Newburgh Raid using a force of only about 35 men. Johnson and his men confiscated supplies and ammunition without a shot being fired by tricking Newburgh's defenders into thinking the town was surrounded by cannons

On July 18, 1862, Adam Rankin Johnson, a former scout for Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest and former commissioned scout officer on the staff of Gen. John C. Breckinridge, hastily assembled a few dozen Kentucky citizens of Confederate loyalty from nearby Henderson, Kentucky, along the Ohio River to launch a surprise attack on the Union army arms stockpile and hospital located at Newburgh, Indiana. people ever looked," Johnson later recounted. The origins of Kentucky's most famous partisan ranger force during the American Civil War began as a self-constituted guerrilla force recruited by Adam Rankin Johnson, known ever after by the nom de guerre "Stovepipe.

Adam Johnson (1834-1922) came to Texas in 1854 where he engaged in surveying, stage driving and Indian fighting. In 1861 he returned to his native state of Kentucky and became a scout for Nathan Bedford Forrest and later commanded the 10th Kentucky Cavalry Regiment fighting with Forrest and John Hunt Morgan.

One of his most remarkable feats was the capture of Newburg, Indiana, from a sizable Union garrison with only twelve men and two joints of stovepipe mounted on the running gear of an abandoned wagon. This episode won him a nickname of "Stovepipe." He was promoted to Brigadier General in June 1864 but in August 1864 was accidentally shot and blinded by one of his own men. After the war ended, Johnson returned to Texas and became a successful businessman. He founded Marble Falls, Texas, in 1887. His memoir, The Partisan Rangers of the Confederate States Army, was first published in 1904 and was selected by John H. Jenkins III as one of the basic Texas books. One of Johnson's men, Thomas S. Miller, wrote this of Johnson: "Paladin of old was not more daring and heroic than this Southern knight on the field of battle. No man in the Southern army, no matter how high his rank, displayed more military skills. . . . He was literally the 'Swamp Fox' of Kentucky."

Wel
The title of this book is somewhat deceptive, in that this is not a history of the entire Confederate Partisan Ranger Corps. Rather, this is a good book that recounts the organization of Johnson's 10th Kentucky Cavalry, the little known actions that took place in Western Kentucky during 1862, and the service of the unit under General John Hunt Morgan. One of the good points of the book is that Johnson included not only his own memoirs, but war accounts written by several other members of the command. Another good point is the inclusion of a roster of the men who served under Johnson's command. A very good book for those interested in Confederate Cavalry and Partisan Ranger units.

At first I thought this book was merely a grandiose tale but as I began to research General Johnson I could not disprove any of the text. Further I found that General Johnson was even bolder, braver, and a much better leader than he claims. A wonderful book for anyone who follows the Civil War in Kentucky, Tennesse, Indiana, and Ohio.

this book has immense historical value. it has prisoner accounts of camp treatment. it has step by step accounts of escape attempts. and best yet, my ggggrandfather is in it.
