Reminiscences of a Rebel The True Adventures of a Confederate Soldier
In April 1861, upon the outbreak of Civil War in the United States, Wayland Fuller Dunaway left his college classroom and entered the ranks of the men who fought the bloodiest war ever waged on the North American continent. A captain in the Army of Northern Virginia, he marched hundreds of miles in Stonewall Jackson’s command; saw Generals Lee and Longstreet; was among the first soldiers to fight at Gettysburg, where he also participated in Pickett’s Charge; and fought against the lines of strangers in blue who, no matter how many times they were defeated, always returned to invade his beloved Virginia.
We have no time machine with which to visit the America of 1861, but Captain Dunaway’s humble narrative of an ordinary participant in the Civil War shines a light back through the mists of time to show what we were like as a people.
