18 CD: Grand Army of the Republic: Civil War Veterans, Department of Massachusetts, 1866-1947
A. Dean Sargent
2002, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v5, PC and Mac, 800 pp, Heritage Books
This CD-ROM was created for the purpose of preserving the records of the Grand Army of the Republic, Department of Massachusetts and to offer a convenient source of the membership for historians and genealogists. The Civil War Veteran upon joining the Grand Army of the Republic registered at his local post. The post was required to forward reports to the department headquarters containing the members’ status. It has been estimated that over 14,000 members’ records can be found here on file in varying forms of print. Additional records have been located in cities and towns throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This book includes the names of over 36,000 members from these sources. The CD also includes the Sons of Veterans and the Ladies Auxiliaries, which totals over 100,000 members. The first official charter issued in Massachusetts was dated October 4, 1866 and was awarded to the William Logan Rodman post located in the city of New Bedford. There are 268 posts listed and within each post the entries are in alphabetical order by the last name and include names, rank, military unit, post #, location of the post, birth and death date and the place where either they were born or resided. This GRAPHIC IMAGE CD-ROM uses the powerful Adobe Acrobat Reader provided free on the CD for Windows and Macintosh operating systems.

19 CD: The Secret Service, The Field, The Dungeon, and The Escape
Albert D. Richardson
(1865), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, index, 531 pp, Heritage Books
"Early in 1861, I felt a strong desire to look at the Secession movement for myself; to learn, by personal observation, whether it sprang from the people or not; what the Revolutionists wanted, what they hoped, and what they feared. But the southern climate, never propitious to the longevity of Abolitionists, was now unfavorable to the health of every northerner, no matter how strong his political constitution." As a correspondent for THE TRIBUNE, Albert D. Richardson traveled throughout the southern states reporting on his travels and adventures in the Civil War. He describes how he and his fellow journalists managed to get their stories to their respective journals in the midst of the chaos of war. Attempting to join General Grant at Grand Gulf, below Vicksburg, he and other journalists were captured by the Rebel forces and taken to Vicksburg, then transported to the "filthy, vermin-infested military prison" in Atlanta, and finally transferred to Libby Prison, then Castle Thunder in Richmond. Conditions worsened with each transfer and the men tried various schemes to secure their release. "We were constantly trying to escape. During the last fifteen months of our imprisonment, I think there was no day when we had not some plan which we hoped soon to put in execution." The final chapters explain the details of their successful escape and the hardships and hazards of the journey home. An everyname index provides easy access to the many characters who shared this adventure.The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

Alvah Bessie, Edited by Dan Bessie
128 pages, 5 x 8, illus, cloth, University of Kentucky Press
Blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Alvah Bessie, praised by both Time and The Nation as one of the finest chroniclers of the Spanish Civil War, was a foot soldier in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion. During his training and service in 1938, he kept detailed notebooks that described everything from his battlefield experiences, his work on the battalion newspaper, and morale among the troops to his meetings with Ernest Hemingway. Not simply a combat record, Bessie's notebooks also diagram loyalist and fascist positions and record the soldiers' favorite songs, their opinions of their officers, and their feelings about politics and the conduct of the war. Lending a fresh perspective to one of the most important conflicts of the 1930s, Alvah Bessie's Spanish Civil War Notebooks provides insight into the highly ideological nature of what many have called the last great cause.

About Author
Alvah Bessie is best known today as a member of the Hollywood Ten, blacklisted in the 1950s. He died in 1985. Dan Bessie is, like his father, a screenwriter, as well as a film director. The author of Rare Birds, he lives in California’s Sierra foothills.

“Alvah Bessie’s notebooks give immediacy and historical basis to his Men in Battle yet stand alone as a readable record not only of Bessie’s activities but also of his impressions of the moment.”—Edward M. Coffman
“An interesting account of the Spanish Civil War, and the author’s frankness and the narrative’s sense of immediacy recommend it.”—Journal of Military History
“A valuable record which offers a useful corrective to the sometimes hagiographic literature of the Spanish Civil War.”—Canadian Military History
“Offers an unexpurgated account of the life of a soldier during war.”—Bulletin of Spanish Studies
