We Are in His Hands Whether We Live or Die

The Letters of Brevet Brigadier General Charles Henry Howard

Author: David K. Thomson

Publisher: Univ. of Tennessee Press

Many soldiers who served in the American Civil War found solace in their faith during the most trying times of the war. But few soldiers took such a providential view of life and the Civil War as Charles Henry Howard. Born in a small town in Maine, Howard came from a family with a distinguished history of soldiering: his grandfather was a Revolutionary War veteran and his brother, the older and more well-known Oliver Otis Howard, attended West Point and rose to command an army in the Civil War. Following in his brother’s footsteps, Charles Henry Howard graduated from Bowdoin College in 1859. Following graduation, Charles visited his older brother at West Point during the tumultuous election of 1860. While at West Point, Howard saw the tensions between Northern and Southern cadets escalate as he weighed his options for a military or theological career. The choice was made for him on April 12, 1861, with the firing on Fort Sumter. Responding to his brother’s plea for the sons of Maine to join the Union cause, Charles found himself a noncommissioned officer fighting in the disastrous Battle of First Bull Run. All told, Howard fought in several major battles of the Eastern Theater, including Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg, and went on to participate in various military actions in the Western Theater including Sherman’s bloody Atlanta Campaign. He was wounded twice, first at the Battle of Fair Oaks and again at Fredericksburg. Yet, despite facing the worst horrors of war, Howard rarely wavered in his faith and rose steadily in rank throughout the conflict. By war’s end, he was a brevet brigadier general in command of the 128th U.S. Colored Troop Regiment. Howard’s letters cover a wide-ranging period, from 1852 to 1908. His concern for his family is typical of a Civil War soldier, but his exceptionally firm reliance on divine providence is what makes these letters an extraordinary window into the mind of a Civil War officer. Howard’s grounded faith was often tested by the viciousness of war, and as a result his letters are rife with stirring confessions and his emotional grappling with the harsh realities he faced. Howard’s letters expose the greater theological and metaphysical dilemmas of the war faced by so many on both sides. David K. Thomson is completing his PhD at the University of Georgia. His research focuses on the role of religion in the Civil War, in particular providential discourse and its impact on wartime efforts in finance, diplomacy, emancipation, politics, the home front, and the battlefield.

Wilson’s Cavalry Corps

Union Campaigns in the Western Theatre, October 1864 through Spring 1865

Author: Jerry Keenan

ISBN: 1476609063

Page: 271

The famed fighting force of Union General William T. Sherman was plagued by a lack of first-rate cavalry—mostly because of Sherman’s belief, after some bad experiences, that the cavalry was largely a waste of good horses. The man Grant sent to change Sherman’s mind was James Harrison Wilson, a bright, ambitious, and outspoken young officer with a penchant for organization. Wilson proved the perfect man for the job, transforming a collection of independent regiments and brigades into a fiercely effective mounted unit. Wilson’s Cavalry, as it came to be known, played a major role in thwarting Confederate General Hood’s 1864 invasion of Tennessee, then moved south for the celebrated capture of Selma, Montgomery, and Columbus. Despite such success, it is this book that is the first overall history of the Cavalry Corps. In addition to meticulous description of military actions, the book affords particular attention to Wilson’s outstanding achievement in creating an infrastructure for his corps, even as he covered the Federal flanks in the withdrawal to Franklin and Nashville.

Träume hat man immer, das hat mit dem Alter nichts zu tun. Anny ist attraktiv, lebenslustig, Single – und fünfundsechzig. Die Suche nach Mr. Right hat sie noch nicht aufgegeben. Doch immer wieder stellen Anny und ihre Freundinnen fest: Männer ihres Alters vergnügen sich lieber mit deutlich jüngeren Frauen – im Zeitalter der kleinen blauen Wunderpille kein Problem. Auch beruflich sieht es nicht gut aus für Anny. Ihre wöchentliche Kolumne steht vor dem Aus, zu langweilig, meint die Chefredakteurin. Da sowieso schon alles egal ist, schreibt Anny sich eben ihren Beziehungsfrust öffentlich von der Seele. Und die Berichte aus dem Haifischbecken Singlewelt treffen einen Nerv. Vor allem ihre Erlebnisse mit dem geheimnisvollen Mr. X elektrisieren die Leserinnen. Zu dem gutaussehenden Kerl mit Silbermähne fühlt Anny sich sofort hingezogen – doch dann ist es plötzlich sie selbst, die sich nach einem Jüngeren umschaut, als sich ihr charmanter Nachbar Ryan für sie interessiert ...
