Forward, My Brave Boys! tells the story of the 11th Tennessee Infantry, a unit comprised of ten companies of men raised from five Middle Tennessee counties in the early spring of 1861. Join these soldiers as they are transformed from raw citizens into a ferocious band of fighters. The 11th took heavy casualties assaulting the Federal lines in the desperate fighting around Atlanta, and broke the Union defenses at Franklin in some of the war's most brutal hand-to-hand combat. This book takes the reader into their camps, on the march, and onto the line of battle through first-hand accounts taken from diaries, letters, and journals. Many never-before-published photographs of the soldiers, newly created battle maps, as well as an extensive biographical roster make this a valuable resource for historians and genealogists, and a great addition to the story of the Army of Tennessee and the war in the West.

Hard cover, 600 pages.
