The Encyclopedia of the Battle of Franklin, by award-winning historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook, is the ultimate guidebook for all those interested in this truly momentous conflict. For tourists it's an imperative traveling companion; for Civil War buffs and scholars an indispensable reference; for history students an essential educational tool; and for the casual reader a fascinating chronicle of one of American history's most significant political and military struggles. With nearly 1,000 entries on subjects ranging from Confederate and Union regiments to biographies of important figures associated with the battle, the work also includes hundreds of illustrations, maps, and photos, eyewitness descriptions of the fight, a full list of the Rebel dead at the McGavock Confederate Cemetery, and a complete record of both the C.S. and U.S. forces present on the Franklin battlefield November 30, 1864. This Civil War Sesquicentennial Edition, the first and only encyclopedia ever written that is devoted solely to a single Civil War battle, also includes official battle reports, command structure charts, genealogical information, an entry index, a 1,000 book bibliography, and 19th-Century tributes to Confederate officers who perished at the Battle of Franklin. In addition, Colonel Seabrook generously provides material on the battles that immediately preceded it (Columbia and Spring Hill) as well as those that followed it (Nashville and Franklin III), covering nearly every war related historical site on the popular "Antebellum Trail" that today runs through Middle Tennessee. This handy detailed compendium is destined to become a classic in its field. The Foreword is by Michael Givens, former Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner! His other titles include: The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn't Want You to Know About Lincoln's War; Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition; Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross; Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy; Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!; The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained; A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest; The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest; Slavery 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's "Peculiar Institution"; Confederate Blood and Treasure: An Interview With Lochlainn Seabrook; Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View; The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln; Give This Book to a Yankee: A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners; and Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War.
