Synopsis

Henry Martyn Cist (February 20, 1839 December 16, 1902) was an American soldier, lawyer, and author who became a brevet brigadier general in the Union Army during the Civil War. In April 1862, Cist joined the 74th Ohio Infantry as a first lieutenant and became its regimental adjutant, serving under Colonel Granville Moody. He later served as the assistant adjutant general with the rank of captain on the staff of Major General William S. Rosecrans in the Army of the Cumberland. Later he was on the staff of Major General George H. Thomas. After the war, Cist wrote The Army of the Cumberland about the famous Union army out west. Among its many battles was the battle of Chickamauga, one of the biggest battles in the Western theater. In that campaign, Braxton Braggs Confederate army routed the Union Army of the Cumberland led by William Rosecrans, but the retreating Federals were rallied by George H. Thomas, forever known as the Rock of Chickamauga, and they made a defensive stand that allowed the Union army to regroup and retreat in an orderly fashion back to Chattanooga. The Union would eventually break the Confederates siege and pave the way for Shermans Atlanta Campaign. This edition is specially formatted with images of the important military commanders.
