 1.  Blood & Sacrifice : The Civil War Journal of a Confederate Soldier
William Pitt Chambers, edited by Richard A. Baumgartner
Softcover, acid-free paper, 288 pages, 26 photographs, engravings & maps, notes, five appendices, index., Blue Acorn Press
A schoolteacher turned soldier, William Pitt Chambers served three years in the Army of Vicksburg and the Army of Tennessee, rising in rank from private to sergeant, orderly sergeant, sergeant major and acting adjutant of the 46th Mississippi Infantry Regiment. His 1862-1865 journal provides an open window to the hopes, dreams and fears of an intelligent, thoughtful Confederate enlisted man, and also chronicles nearly the entire history of his company and regiment through daily life and death in camp, on the march and in battles fought at Vicksburg, Port Gibson, Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, Atlanta, Allatoona, Franklin and Fort Blakely.

"Well written, Blood & Sacrifice quickly sends into full retreat any notion that soldiering is a romantic adventure to be envied." - The Houston Post

"William Pitt Chambers left a memorable record that is noteworthy for its setting, quality of style and content. Blood & Sacrifice is a cut above theuutypical memoir; it has the style of Mary Boykin Chesnut's Diary from Dixieand the drama of Sam Watkins' Co. Aytch" - Historian / Author Rod Gragg

"Chambers' journal is one of the most interesting personal accounts of the war." - Curator Gordon A. Cotton, Old Court House Museum, Vicksburg

"Chambers' diary/memoir from the 46th Mississippi rates on a level with the standard by which all are judged, Co. Aytch. This unpretentious, honest account is a must for anyone who wants to understand the war from the front-line Confederate soldier's perspective." - Historian / Author John Michael Priest
