Recipient of the 1998 Jefferson Davis Book Award. Lee's Miserables: Life in the Army of Northern Virginia from the Wilderness to Appomattox, by J. Tracy Power. Exhaustively researched, and based on a wide variety of letters and diaries drawn from manuscript sources throughout the Confederate South, this book traces the cautious optimism after the Wilderness campaign, where soldiers wrote of high spirits, to the rampant despair of the spring of 1865. Covers the standard topics: morale, rations, home front, and the like. This very well-written book gives readers a you-are-there experience. (488 pages, 8.75 x 7, Paperback)
