Item Description...
Through stories of defective ammunition, accidental shooting, inexperienced troops, and deliberate firings, this book is the first to identify when Yankee killed Yankee and Confederate killed Confederate. These tragic accounts strip away the romanticism of the Civil War.

Publishers Description

More than 100 true stories of comrade killing comrade:

  • defective ammunition
  • accidental shootings
  • blinding smoke
  • deliberate fire upon comrade
  • mistaken uniforms
  • inexperienced troops
  • unknown passwords

On May 2, 1863, Stonewall Jackson was on the verge of the greatest victory of his career. Shortly before 10 P.M. he rode through the woods near Chancellorsville, Virginia, to find where the Federals had established their line. As he returned, his own men, in the noise and confusion, opened fire, woulding Jackson several times. One of the Civil War's first heroes died eight days later.

Stonewall Jackson's death is but one example of Confederate killing Confederate or Yankee killing Yankee. No war was as intense and chaotic as the American Civil War. Author Webb Garrison has brought together Jackson's story and 150 other instances of friendly fire in this unique book that strips away the romanticism of the Civil War.

" With] night setting in, it was difficult to distinguish friend from foe. Several of our own command were killed by our own friends." ―Ambrose Wright at Malvern Hill

"I thought it better to kill a Union man or two than to lose the effect of my moral suasion." ―Union Officer Louis M. Goldsborough

"Whilst in this position my regiment was shelled by our own artillery. The officer in command should be made to pay the penalty for this criminal conduct." ―Confederate Col. Edward Willis, speaking of a battle at Gettysburg

"Seemingly not content with the speed that the enemy were slaughtering us, one of our own batteries commenced a heavy and destructive fire on us." ―Union Maj. Thomas S. Tate, speaking of Tupelo, Mississippi

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Friendly fire in the civil war  Jan 23, 2004
In this book Webb Garrison has compiled a number of incidents in which soldiers fired upon men from their own side, be it in a large battle, a skirmish, or an act upon a lone individual. Although he has consulted numerous works and records, it is most likely that due to fog-of-war or willful supression that the incidents about which he writes are but a fraction of those that occurred.

Friendly Fire in the Civil War is an interesting book, and not without its merits. But overall I find that there is just something about Garrison's writing that makes his books too simplistic, and therefore difficult to read.

this book doesn't hold the readers attention  Dec 12, 2003
this book is short only 200 pages and it is a very little talked about subject but though informative it just doesn't hold my attention and I really don't recomend it
