About this Book

Charleston -- the appropriately titled "Cradle of the Confederacy"-- was for years the objective of a determined and well-equipped enemy. Indeed, the critical seaport would stand defiant against all comers until flanked by William T. Sherman's army in February 1865, just two months before Appomattox.
