At first glance it appears there is little Civil War content. However, Green enlisted as a private in the (2nd NC which became the 12th) in 1861 where he earned a commission a few months later. Defeated in a commissioning re-election he served as an aide-de-camp on General's Rodes’ and Daniel’s staffs. He became a POW at Roanoke Island but was paroled shortly after. He suffered a head wound at Gettysburg on Day One and became a POW again. He attained the rank of full colonel in 1862. The book is a full biography containing exploits during the Texas War of Independence, plantation life and political activities are among numerous anecdotes.
