About Book

Book Description
Originally written and published in 1904 by a committee of veterans to verify North Carolina's claims of being the first at the battle of Big Bethel, farthest to the front at Gettsburg 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 as a primary source is invaluable. A new introduction, index, 34 photographs, seven maps, and material on the North Carolina monument at Appomattox have been added. Full color cover.
