The God of War by Robert Chambers (signed)
This work of fiction makes the Civil War come alive through a series of letters the narrator, Henry Wylie, writes to his wife,(the Dear Elizabeth), back in Memphis. It is very worthwhile reading. You get the feel of what it was like to ride with General Forrest throughout the entire war. You experience the reality of the war, feel the desperation, the chaos of battle, suffer the hardships of inclement weather and deprivation, and share the comradery that only war can forge. The main character, Henry Wylie, is a pressman for the Memphis Daily Appeal, who joins up as a private with Forrest’s cavalry at the beginning of the war, and gets promoted to corporal, sergeant, and 2nd lieutenant by the end of the war.
