Lee's Body Guards: The 39th Battalion Virginia Cavalry

15.50

They considered themselves "Lee's Body Guard," cavalrymen specifically recruited to serve as scouts, guides, and couriers for General Robert E. Lee. Though their battle experiences might pale compared to those of soldiers under J.E.B. Stuart and Wade Hampton, the men of the 39th Battalion served crucial roles in the Confederate army. From the fields of Second Manassas to Appomattox Court House, they were privy to the inner workings of the Confederate high command. They were also firsthand witnesses to the army's victories and triumphs and to its tragedies and trials. The book includes a roster, notes, and a bibliography.  This is the twenty-fourth book for award-winning Civil War historian Michael C. Hardy.
