MoreThis book is a compilation of human-interest stories and historical accounts of the Civil War as fought in the bayou country of Louisiana, a part of Acadiana, where Yankees and Rebels roamed the countryside and fought in bloody encounters. The stories were extracted from The Official Records of the U.S. Government, regimental histories, works of several authors, diaries and letters of soldiers, and reminiscences of others. Raphael has expertly molded historical reports into readable form. Publication of this book coincides with the Sesquicentennial - the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War, which was declared on April 12, 1861.
