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 siege of Chattanooga. Braxton Braggs Confederate Army of Tennessee had pushed the Army of the Cumberland back to the city after Chickamauga, but the Union was able to break the siege eventually, which would pave the way for Shermans Atlanta Campaign the following year. The siege was broken with the climactic and incredible Union victory at Missionary Ridge. This edition is specially formatted with images of the important military commanders.
