Told here for the first time is the compelling story of the Bluff City during the Civil War. Historian and preservationist Mike Bunn takes you from the pivotal role Eufaula played in Alabama's secession and early enthusiasm for the Confederate cause to its aborted attempt to become the state's capital and its ultimate capture by Union forces, chronicling the effects of the conflict on Eufaulans along the way. "Civil War Eufaula "draws on a wide range of firsthand individual perspectives, including those of husbands and wives, political leaders, businessmen, journalists, soldiers, students and slaves, to produce a mosaic of observations on shared experiences. Together, they communicate what it was like to live in this riverside trading town during a prolonged and cataclysmic war. It is the story of ordinary people in extraordinary times.

An illustrated guidebook documenting the history and sites of the state's origins. Alabama's territorial and early statehood years represent a crucial formative period in its past, a time in which the state both literally and figuratively took shape. The story of the remarkable changes that occurred within Alabama as it transitioned from frontier territory to a vital part of the American union in less than a quarter century is one of the most compelling in the state's past. This history is rich with stories of charismatic leaders, rugged frontiersmen, a dramatic and pivotal war that shaped the state's trajectory, raging political intrigue, and pervasive sectional rivalry. Many of Alabama's modern cities, counties, and religious, educational, and governmental institutions first took shape within this time period. It also gave way to the creation of sophisticated trade and communication networks, the first large-scale cultivation of cotton, and the advent of the steamboat. Contained within this story of growth and innovation is a parallel story, the dispossession of Native groups of their lands and the forced labor of slaves, which fueled much of Alabama's early development. Early Alabama:An Illustrated Guide to the Formative Years, 1798-1826 serves as a traveler's guidebook with a fast-paced narrative that traces Alabama's developmental years. Despite the great significance of this era in the state's overall growth, these years are perhaps the least understood in all of the state's history and have received relatively scant attention from historians. Mike Bunn has created a detailed guide-appealing to historians and the general public-for touring historic sites and structures including selected homes, churches, businesses, government buildings, battlefields, cemeteries, and museums.

This comprehensive book is the first to chronicle both wars and document the sites on which they were fought. It sheds light on how the wars led to the forced removal of Native Americans from the region, secured the Gulf South against European powers, facilitated increased migration into the area, furthered the development of slavebased agriculture and launched the career of Andrew Jackson.

Includes numerous rare images and also a driving tour of over three dozen historic sites in this historic Western Georgia city This book chronicles- through the eyes of a range of visiotrs-- the first quarter century of the development of Columbus, Georgia. A planned city located at the head of navigation on the Chattahoochee River, the city underwent a remarkably swift transformation from isolated frontier town to Deep South commercial hub between its founding in 1828 and the eve of the Civil War. Many historians have drawn on the rich archive of documents that help us understand antebellum Columbus and its colorful past from the perspective of residents, but few have attempted to provide the fresh insight of those visitors from America and abroad not familiar with the inner workings of the city. Through an overview narrative history of Columbus's early years, dozens of rare images, and an assemblage of over fifteen intriguing, candid, at times humorous visitor accounts, "Well Worth Stopping to See" provides a unique and insightful perspective on an influential and dynamic Southern town. Also included is a driving tour of historic sites that will enable readers to appreciate the town's robust antebellum architectural heritage and better understand the contours of life within the borders of the original city carved from the wilderness nearly two centuries ago.

The Writers - A Sense of Ireland (Hardcover): Peter Fallon, Andrew Carpenter The Writers - A Sense of Ireland (Hardcover)

After ten years of upheaval -- not only the `Troubles' in the north of Ireland but also great political and social changes in the south -- Irish writing is healthier, more vital and more searching than it has been for fifty years. This book marks this high point. The writers whose new work appears in this collection range in age from under twenty five to over eighty and differ widely in their choice of subject and theme: but they share a vision of the world and of experience which is coloured in a haunting way by an Irish perspective. Established writers -- Beckett, O'Flaherty, O Faolain, Heaney -- have all provided unpublished work; and this is placed beside brilliant new work by younger writers and those with growing reputations. The editors have selected writing in Irish as well as English, and included extracts from novels, plays and short stories as well as poetry. The book is arranged so that a photograph of the writer faces the first page of his or her work. These studies, taken especially by Mike Bunn, provide a memorable exploration in themselves of the personalities of the writers. A book of such striking vidual and literaty impact serves as a timely reminder of the power and importance of the culture of modern Ireland.
