The Language of the Civil War by John D. Wright



I have sought to put together an engaging book for the casual reader, a reference work for students, a special dictionary for the libraries of Civil War buffs, and a source of historical information for writers of reference and fictional works. The entries have been assembled from the massive array of books and writings about the war, material that seems to grow like Topsy on a daily basis.

This is a reference book everyone interested in Civil War should have  . A nice reference book to have. I use it all the time.

This is a unique compilation of slang.

Horatio Gouverneur Wright (March 6, 1820 – July 2, 1899) was an engineer and general in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He took command of the VI Corps in May 1864 following the death of General John Sedgwick. In this capacity, he was responsible for building the fortifications around Washington DC, and in the Overland Campaign he commanded the first troops to break through the Confederate defenses at Petersburg.

There is nothing surprisingly new in Wright’s gathering of United States Civil War facts, and most of the material centers on slavery and battles. The book is mostly laid out in page-long spreads, built up of colored boxes of highlights, an eye-catching collection of artwork, and a timeline running along the foot of the page. Various characters receive modest attention: generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, John Brown, Andrew Johnson, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and, of course, Abraham Lincoln throughout. Signal battles, technology, and political maneuvering are also touched upon.
