War Narrative of Arthur Middleton Manigault, Brigadier General, C.S.A. Columbia, SC: USC, 1983. 344 p. E605M27.1983.
Gen. Manigault describes the defense of the South Carolina coast, evacuation of Corinth, Bragg's invasion of Kentucky, Stone's River, The Tullahoma campaign, Chickamauga, the siege of Chattanooga (including Missionary Ridge), and the Atlanta Campaign (including Resaca, Dallas, Peachtree Creek, the battle of Atlanta, Jonesboro, and the evacuation of Atlanta). Manigault deplored the official policy that allowed valuable rice-growing regions of South Carolina to fall into Federal hands early in the war. He assessed as inadequate the care of the sick at Corinth, as well as the food and clothing issued to Bragg's soldiers who were invading Kentucky, and he lamented the Confederacy's preference for supplying troops in Virginia to the neglect of those fighting in the west. At Dallas, Georgia, in the early winter of 1864, Manigault described how the Army changed the deploment of artillery. The artillery was placed into regiments rather than separately with different brigades; introduced tool-wagons to keep track of costly axes and shovels; organized an infirmary corps; and held regular target practices. A stickler for discipline and organization, Manigault believed that the freedom of Wheeler's Cavalry led to neglect of detail and thus contributed to the Confederacy's downfall. He praised Gen. Braxton Bragg's discipline and organization, but not his generalship. Manigault's vignettes of Jefferson Davis reveal the effect of stress on the President between 1862 and 1864. The manuscript ceases with Manigault's description of the depleted condition of the Army of Tennessee as Hood began his Tennessee campaign. Manigault's record of this service with the Charleston Volunteers of the Palmetto Regiment in the War with Mexico is included.
