"Fear Was Not In Him": The Civil War Letters of General Francis C. Barlow, U.S.A.by Samito, Christian G., Editor
Publisher: Fordham University Press
Retail Price: $55.00
Issue: Winter 2005
Through explanatory passages and extensive notes that accompany Barlow's letters, Christian G. Samito sheds new light on the life of a major general. The letters, which span the entire war, trace the development of Northern intellectuals' perspective on the war and military life. The book illustrates how a young man, unskilled in military science, eventually became one of the North's strongest combat leaders, and a postwar politician.
