Rebel Private: Front and Rear

by William A. Fletcher

The recent rediscovery of Rebel Private: Front and Rear, effectively lost for decades, marks an authentic publishing event in the literature of the Civil War. A rare insight into the conflict from the point of view of a Confederate Army enlisted man, William A. Fletcher's compelling memoir has been hailed by historians as a classic and indispensable key to understanding the Southern perspective. Margaret Mitchell even described the volume as her single most valuable source of research for Gone With the Wind.
