Camp life and the daily experiences of a Rebel private. Written a couple of decades after the fact, following the fall of Reconstruction. Unrepentant traitor to his country. ( )

A gifted storyteller's first hand account of everything from the day-to-day life of a Confederate private soldier to several major battles of the Civil War. ( )

I'd never heard of Company Aytch before stumbling upon it at LibriVox performed by one of my favorite narrators, Winston Tharp. I'm glad I listened to it since it translates well to audio, Tharp has a natural gift that brings back alive this old southern raconteur's conversational memoir. At times it seemed like a modernist or post-modernist work but really it was just Sam rebelling convention. The most interesting of course is the private's view of the war and I was amazed at how brutal Confederate soldiers were treated by top commanders and other petty acts on down the line. Sam saw a lot of death and details graphically brains slopping out into food plates, etc.. terrible but he remains lighthearted. Great memoir from any war this is a classic that has been widely quoted. ( )

4829. "Co. Aytch," Maury Grays, First Tennessee Regiment, or, A Side Show of the Big Show, by Sam R. Watkins (read 5 Jun 2011) This book was written in 1881 and first published in book form in 1882. The author was in Company H of the First Tennessee all through the Civil WAr, and it is as good a memoir as I have read of that war by one who fought in it. It is fetchingly written, with touches of humor, waxing poetic and sentimental often. As is to be expected,, I suppose, in war memoirs, he claims they lost only one battle. He was devoted to the South's cause and it is clear that that cause was in defense of a great evil (slavery) never entered into his head. But the badness of his cause is what leads me to award the book only three stars. ( )

This book is considered the creme of the first person accounts of Civil War soldiers. And it is a good book. I particularly appreciated the sarcasm dripping from many parts of the book, to the point where one didn't know if Mr. Watkins was being sarcastic or sincere. I was also struck with his contempt for officers, which is fair enough for a private soldier, but the unconscious irony of his praise of most of the officers and generals who had actual influence on his life. It is also striking how high his morale seemed to be, for the most part, despite being part of an Army that was generally defeated, much like the Army of the Potomac was in the East. I recommend it, but it does not leave me thinking that I've now seen into the mind of a Confederate squaddie. ( )

To the memory of my dead comrades of the Maury Grays, and the First Tennessee Regiment, who died in defense of Southern homes and liberties: also to my living comrades, nearly all of whom shed their blood in defense of the same cause, this book is respectfully dedicated by the author.

About twenty years ago, I think it was – I won’t be certain, though – a man whose name, if I remember correctly, was Wm. L. Yancy – I write only from memory, and this was a long time ago – took a strange and peculiar notion that the sun rose in the east and set in the west, and that the compass pointed north and south.

I always shot at privates. It was they that did the shooting and killing, and if I could kill or wound a private, why, my chances were so much the better. I always looked upon officers as harmless personages.
