Earl Hess has been on a roll lately, producing his fortifications trilogy, writing a history of the Battle of the Crater, and taking a sweeping view of the Civil War in the west.

      The Knoxville Campaign provides a full rendering of military events in East Tennessee from August through the April Hess begins with a nice, albeit brief, summary of Ambrose Burnside's invasion through the mountains from Kentucky and his army's occupation of East Tennessee. "Cracker Cavaliers: The 2nd Georgia Cavalry under Wheeler and Forrest documents the regiment's participation in major campaigns of the western theater, including the Atlanta Campaign and Sherman's March to the Sea from an ordinary soldier's perspective on the Civil War."--BOOK Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

    In this landmark book, award-winning historian Earl J. Hess fills a gap in Civil War scholarship-a timely contribution that coincides with and commemorates the sesquicentennial of the Civil War The East Tennessee campaign was an important part of the war in the West.   Before The Knoxville Campaign, only one book, appearing over fifty years ago, had been published on the campaign, and today the campaign, if remembered at all, typically is viewed as a sideshow to the big show unfolding between the Union and Confederate forces at Chattanooga. However, Hess’s extensively researched fresh study rewards readers.
