The Selected Letters and Papers of Major Eugene Blackford

Eugene Blackford was a native of Fredericksburg, and the family house still stands. Blackford has quite a bit to say about the Battle of Fredericksburg, damage to the town and about visiting local plantations (e.g. Santee Moss Neck, etc.), so this will be of special interest. A Virginia officer in an Alabama regiment and commander of the Army of Northern Virginia's elite sharpshooters, Blackford's correspondence spans nearly the entire war and allows the modern reader to see this turbulent era through the eyes of someone who lived it. The battles, however, are only part of the story. Blackford also wrote about camp life, food, foraging, the hardships of the picket line, as well as the marches. He makes candid comments on his leaders at all levels and prays for those he admires. 

Speaker and author Fred L. Ray is president and CEO of CFS Pres, Inc. He is a U.S Army veteran who spent most of his time in armored cavalry, during which he served two tours in Vietnam.
