“Soundly researched, well organized, and readable, Losson’s book about General Cheatham contributes to a more complete picture of the Civil War in the Western theater. Cheatham was a colorful personality who played a significant role throughout the war as an officer in the Army of Tennessee, and his story will appeal not only to Tennesseans, but to all students of the war in the west.”
—James Lee McDonough, author of Chattanooga—A Death Grip on the Confederacy

“Losson’s portrait of Cheatham is a revealing flesh-and-blood depiction.”

“. . . informative and balanced biography . . . . This is a welcome addition to the biographies of the generals who led the troops from Tennessee during the Civil War. Those who are interested in the War, and every Tennessee library which collects books relating to our state’s participation in that horrid war, should add this book to their holdings. I recommend it.”
—James A. Hoobler, Tennessee Librarian
