General Duke was John Hunt Morgan's bother-in-law. He assumed command of Morgan's Confederate cavalry following Morgan's death. His narrative is not only military oriented but addresses social life, slavery, etc. A very collectible Confederate account.
ITC-48: "A standard since its publication.." Nevins I-83: "…Exceptionally fine memoir…often consulted and widely quoted."
THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE MANY PUBLISHED WITHOUT A FRONTISE PORTRAIT OF DUKE.
