Synopsis :

Retaining the highest respect of his units, General Joseph B. Palmer, CSA, was an admirable man whose distinctiveness lay in his calm judgement, bravery, and sympathy. Other generals may have received higher rank and wider acclaim, but these qualities in Palmer have made him a biographer’s dream.

   “General Palmer’s life is to the biographer what a sunken treasure is to the deep sea diver,” author Robert O. Neff said. “He was greatly loved by all his troops, and he commanded about 90 percent of all the Tennessee units which ever served the South.”

Tennessee’s Battered Brigadier tells the life story of Palmer, one of 36 Confederate generals from Tennessee. Recently published by Hillsboro Press, the book was previously released in limited numbers by Historic Travellers’ Rest.

   Though Palmer has been praised by many contemporary writers and was applauded by writers of his time, his full story had not been told until Neff heard about his courageous life. The general did not keep a diary and, because he was a widower, did not write letters home during the war; therefore, Neff’s information is mostly gathered from newspapers, contemporary writers, and Palmer’s peers.

   One contemporary testimony reads, “Brave as a soldier, he is yet as gentle as a woman in disposition . . . for a man so gentle, so amiable, and so peaceful in private life, it amazed all his soldiers to see how utterly careless of himself he was in battle.” Tennessee's Battered Brigadier tells the story of General Palmer before, during, and in the aftermath of the Civil War.

Review:

...a well-researched and thoroughly documented account of this ‘courteous and knightly’ brigadier, who was an outstanding leader politically and militarily -- Clay M. Chandler, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Middle Tennessee State Universityformer commander, Murfreesboro Camp No. 33, Sons of Confederate Veterans

General Palmer’s life is a great example of human resilience. This detailed study is to be commended. -- Walter T. Durham, author of Reluctant Partners: Nashville and the Union,Rebellion Revisited, and Nashville: The Occupied Cityauthor of Reluctant Partners: Nashville and the Union,Rebellion Revisited, and Nashville: The Occupied Cityauthor of Reluctant

I now understand why he was so popular with his troops... -- Ridley Wills, Historian and Author of Tennessee Governors at Home, Old Enough to Die, Touring Tennessee, and History of Belle Meade Country Club
