Tarheels:  Five Points in the Record of North Carolina

in the Great War of 1861-65

with Introduction & New Material by Patrick A. Schroeder

       (Reprinted 2000; 2002).  Originally written and published in 1904 by a committee of veterans to verify North Carolina’s claims of being first at the battle of Big Bethel, farthest to the front of Gettysburg and Chickamauga, and last at Appomattox—the last capture of Union cannons and the last volley fired by Lee’s Army.  The role of North Carolina troops in each engagement is discussed in detail.  The Gettysburg section dealing with Longstreet’s July 3 assault may attract the most attention.  Yet, North Carolina’s participation at Big Bethel and their advance and capture of artillery pieces at Chickamauga are also compelling.  “The Last at Appomattox” reveals scarce details about the final battle for the Army of Northern Virginia.  This reprint offers everyone the opportunity to judge North Carolina’s claims for themselves.  The use of this book for its maps, statistics, and a primary resource is invaluable.  A new introduction, index, photographs, and material on the North Carolina monument at Appomattox have been added.  The book is 92 pages with 23 photographs and six maps. Soft Cover:  $9.95.  ISBN:  1-889246-02-6 Hard Cover:  $16.95.  ISBN:  1-889246-15-8.
