The Camden Expidition.jpg (74035 bytes) The Camden Expedition of 1864                                                          by Michael J. Forsyth
The Confederacy squandered a great opportunity to turn the Civil War in its favor in 1864, when because of concerns about other Union forces coming south from Arkansas, it failed to finish off a Union army cornered in Louisiana. Unable to agree on a course of action against both threats, the Confederates were defeated by the Union forces from Arkansas, which saved the one in Louisiana and became known to history as the Camden Expedition. The book is full of "might-have-beens". For instance if Frederick Steele, commander of the VII Federal Army Corp. had not been ordered by General Ulysses S. Grant to move south, disaster would have befallen not only the Army of the Gulf in Louisiana, but, the entire Union cause, and Abraham Lincoln might not have won reelection! 210 pages, indexed.
