Cannoneers in Gray
summary

Winner of the 1984 Mrs. Simon Baruch University Award from the United Daughters of the Confederacy
Winner of the 1984 Fletcher Pratt Award from the Civil War Roundtable of New York

This enlarged edition of Cannoneers in Gray provides new detail concerning the activities of artillery units operating in key campaigns of the western theater of the Civil War—at Stones River, Missionary Ridge, Kennesaw Mountain, Shiloh, Peachtree Creek. Larry Daniel traces the four-year history of the artillery branch of the Army of Tennessee from its organization through its demise at the war's end. He shows that Civil War cannons were of little consequence when used as offensive weapons but could be highly effective in defense. Daniel includes five new maps of campaigns and battles central to his discussion of larger issues, such as command and strategy on the western front.
