In Bentonville, veteran historian Nat Hughes has cemented his place at the forefront of Civil War historians with a detailed tactical study. The book is another fine example of what the Civil War community has come to expect from UNC Press publications–a scholarly work that will stand for years to come. Alongside such titles as Harry Pfanz’s two Gettysburg books and Gary Gallagher’s Fighting For the Confederacy, Hughes’ contribution to the UNC catalogue is a worthy addition

Nathaniel Hughes offers a full-length tactical study of the battle of Bentonville, the only major Civil War battle fought in North Carolina and the Confederacy's last attempt to stop the devastating march of Sherman's army north through the Carolinas.

The battle of Bentonville, the only major Civil War battle fought in North Carolina, was the Confederacy's last attempt to stop the devastating march of William Tecumseh Sherman's army north through the Carolinas. Despite their numerical disadvantage, General Joseph E. Johnston's Confederate forces successfully ambushed one wing of Sherman's army on March 19, 1865 but were soon repulsed.

Nathaniel Cheairs J. .Perhaps Sherman's March into the Carolinas is as important, although according to Nathaniel Cheairs Hughes, the battle of Bentonville "should not have been fought" (p. 222).Bentonville: The Final Battle of Sherman and Johnston. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1996. Yet fought it was, for three days in mid-March 1865, between Sherman and Joseph E. Johnston. Sherman had grown exasperated with the kind of warfare that had forced him to follow John Bell Hood's army.

The Battle of Bentonville (March 19 – 21, 1865) was fought in Johnston County, North Carolina, near the village of Bentonville, as part of the Western Theater of the American Civil War. It was the last battle between the armies of Union Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman and Confederate Gen. Joseph E. Johnston

Despite their numerical disadvantage, General Joseph E. Johnston's Confederate forces successfully ambushed one wing of Sherman's army on March 19, 1865 but were soon repulsed. For the Confederates, it was a heroic but futile effort to delay the inevitable: within a month, both Richmond and Raleigh had fallen, and Lee had surrendered. Nathaniel Hughes offers a full-length tactical study of the battle of Bentonville, the only major Civil War battle fought in North Carolina and the Confederacy's last attempt to stop the devastating march of Sherman's army north through the Carolinas. In careful detail, Hughes lays out Confederate and Union troop movements and places the engagement within the larger military framework of the last months of the war. Analyzing the reasons for the initial success and eventual failure of General Joseph E. Johnston's offensive, Hughes maintains that Sherman showed great restraint by remaining committed to the larger goal of reaching Goldsboro rather than stopping to pursue or destroy the defeated Confederates. -->

The Battle of Bentonville is the last time the Confederate Army took the initiative against the Union in a serious way. Within a few short weeks, the Army of Northern Virginia would be retreating to Appomattox.

This book document the battle between Confederate General Johnston and his ragged Confederates and Union General Sherman and his hiking, web-footed boys in blue.

The Confederates never had a chance, by this time Sherman's men had captured Atlanta after a long siege, marched through Georgia, burning all in their path and in South Carolina, they traveled across roads and bridges that they built on the fly.

The Union is caught by surprise, but rallies and wins the battle as their superior numbers are brought in.

A great book for Civil War History Buffs as well as casual readers.

This is a very enjoyable book to read and offers a detailed and well researched account of the final battle between Sherman and Johnston at Bentonville fought on March 19-21, 1865. This was the last full scale battle between the two opposing armies. The book has 9 maps which are well presented and the battle ones are very easy to understand and follow. Overall this book is a well documentated account of this very interesting and bloody battle.
