From Vicksburg to Bennett Place

Coming soon...

Purchase Book:

From Vicksburg to Bennett Place is also a true story based on the 70 letters written by Captain George Washington Porter about his experiences in the Civil War that are entirely different than Seeing the Elephant. 


Author T.W. Harvey has used those letters and other primary and secondary research as Captain Porter was the aide-de-camp to Brigadier General Mortimer Leggett, assisting the general as the Army of Tennessee moved south, then east, and finally north to the surrender of Confederate General Joseph Johnston at Bennett Place in North Carolina two weeks after Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the Civil War.


This book concludes the trilogy that relates what those young men from Muskingum County, Ohio, went through before and during the Civil War. It is a unique narration of what the war really was and how they reacted to it as told in the letters they sent home to their families.
