9781611212044: “The Bloody Fifth”―The 5th Texas Infantry Regiment, Hood’s Texas Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia: Volume 1: Secession to the Suffolk Campaign

Vol. 1: Secession to the Suffolk Campaign The 5th Texas Infantry―“The Bloody Fifth”―was one of only three Texas regiments to fight with Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. The 5th Texas established an exceptional combat record in an army known for its fighting capabilities. The regiment took part in 38 engagements, including nearly every significant battle in the Eastern Theater, as well as the Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Knoxville campaigns in the Western Theater, before laying down its arms forever at Appomattox. “The Bloody Fifth”, in a pair of magnificent volumes, is the first full-length study to document this fabled regimental command. The first installment, Secession to the Suffolk Campaign, opens the regiment’s rich history from the withdrawal of the Lone Star State from the Union and the organization of ten independent east and central Texas companies, through the spring of 1863 and its complex and often-misunderstood mission around Suffolk, Virginia. The 5th’s battlefield prowess was demonstrated early in its inaugural fighting on the Virginia peninsula in early 1862, but it was at Second Manassas later that year where the regiment earned its enduring nickname by attacking and crushing the 5th New York Zouaves. Flushed with victory, the Texans pushed through the disintegrating Federal lines and outdistanced not only the remainder of the brigade but the rest of the Confederate army. The 5th Texas, boasted Gen. John Bell Hood in his official report, had “slipped the bridle.” The undying sobriquet “The Bloody Fifth” was now part of American military history. Schmutz’s definitive study is based upon years of archival battlefield research that uncovered hundreds of primary sources, many never before used. The result is a lively account of not only the regiment’s marches and battles but also a personal look into the lives of these Texans as they struggled to survive a vicious war 2,000 miles from home. The second installment, Gettysburg to Appomattox, will complete the history. “The Bloody Fifth”―The 5th Texas Infantry, Hood’s Texas Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia, with photos, original maps, explanatory footnotes, and important and useful appendices, is a significant contribution to the history of Texas and the American Civil War.

From the Back Cover :

"A thoroughly researched account of a legendary Confederateinfantry regiment that
will be of deep interest to the legion of Civil War buffs whofollow the exploits of
Hood's Texas Brigade."
-- Richard M. McMurry, author of Two Great Rebel Armies,Atlanta 1864,
and John Bell Hood and the War for SouthernIndependence
 
"John F. Schmutz's 'The Bloody Fifth' is, to date, the most comprehensive, thoroughly
researched account of the 5th Texas Infantry and belongs in thelibrary of every serious
student of the Civil War."
-- John Michael Priest, author of "Stand to It and Give ThemHell":
Gettysburg as the SoldiersExperienced it From Cemetery Ridge to Little Round Top
 
" 'The Bloody Fifth' is everything a regimental history should be:diligently researched,
well-written, and brimming with hard to find factual detail andpersonal experiences.
The author deftly weaves the history of the Fifth Texas into theoverall tale of the war
without straying from his primary goal--telling the very humanstory of one regiment
whose members lived those events hour-by-hour for many years.Whenever possible
he lets the Texans tell their story in their own words and allowsthe reader to walk
alongside some of the best soldiers--perhaps THE best soldiers--inthe Army of
Northern Virginia. This is an enormous achievement."
-- Jeffrey Wm Hunt, Director, Texas MilitaryForces Museum and author of
The Last Battle of the CivilWar: Palmetto Ranch
 
"From their mustering in the towns and farms of east and centralTexas to the killing
fields of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, thestories of the men of the
Fifth Texas Infantry Regiment are brought to life in impeccabledetail. Although not
elite in appearance or demeanor, these roughhewn and rugged menand their leaders
were Robert E' Lee's elite shock troops, repeatedly called upon tofight where the
fighting would be the most difficult. This is the story of the'Bloody Fifth' and the
soldiers whose blood was spilled, attaining not ultimate victory,but more importantly,
eternal glory."
-- Stephen M. Hood, author of John Bell Hood: The Rise,Fall, and Resurrection of a
Confederate General and TheLost Papers of Confederate General John Bell Hood

The 5th Texas Infantry- The Bloody Fifth -was one of only three Texas regiments to fight with Robert E. Lee s Army of Northern Virginia. Much like the army in which it served, the 5th Texas established a stellar combat record. The regiment took part in 38 engagements, including nearly every significant battle in the Eastern Theater, as well as the Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Knoxville campaigns in the Western Theater. John F. Schmutz s The Bloody Fifth : The 5th Texas Infantry, Hood s Texas Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia is the first full-length study to document this fabled regimental command. The Bloody Fifth presents the regiment s rich history from the secession of the Lone Star State and the organization of ten independent east and central Texas companies, through four years of arduous marching and fighting. The 5th Texas s battlefield exploits are legendary, from its inaugural fighting on the Virginia peninsula in early 1862 through Appomattox. At Gettysburg, the Texans suffered horrendous losses repeatedly assaulting Little Round Top s rocky slopes, and in the Wilderness on May 6, 1864, helped save the collapsing Confederate line while the eyes of General Lee were upon them. But it was at Second Manassas where the regiment earned its enduring nickname by attacking and crushing the 5th New York Zouaves.
