Sermons of the Confederacy 1861-1862, edited by Dr. William G. Peters, is the first volume in a collection of sermons by Southern ministers, bishops, priests, and a rabbi from 1861-1865. Several are in response to calls by President Jefferson Davis for national days of prayer, and illustrates the South's commitment to Christian values, aligning one's life and nation with God's plan, and the need for divine aid and mercy. These ministers cover, in their sermons and discourses, a wide range of subjects, from the cause of the War, differences between Yankees and Southerners, Negroes and their purpose among Southerners, the life and death of Confederate heroes, service to God, military service and Christian Faith, etc. This is an excellent book who wants to understand our Confederate ancestors, the C.S.A., and the South's Faith in God and victory in the face of implacable Northern invasion.

In 1877, the American Humane Society was formed as the national organization for animal and child protection. Thirty years later, there were 354 anticruelty organizations chartered in the United States, nearly 200 of which were similarly invested in the welfare of both humans and animals. In The Rights of the Defenseless, Susan J. Pearson seeks to understand the institutional, cultural, legal, and political significance of the perceived bond between these two kinds of helpless creatures, and the attempts made to protect them. Unlike many of today’s humane organizations, those Pearson follows were delegated police powers to make arrests and bring cases of cruelty to animals and children before local magistrates. Those whom they prosecuted were subject to fines, jail time, and the removal of either animal or child from their possession. Pearson explores the limits of and motivation behind this power and argues that while these reformers claimed nothing more than sympathy with the helpless and a desire to protect their rights, they turned “cruelty” into a social problem, stretched government resources, and expanded the state through private associations. The first book to explore these dual organizations and their storied history, The Rights of the Defenseless will appeal broadly to reform-minded historians and social theorists alike.

Harry Gilmor started out in Baltimore but at the outbreak of the American Civil War, immediately lent his sympathies to the Confederate cause. Twice captured and held prisoners by Union forces, he nevertheless along the way fought in many battles, including at Gettysburg and actions against General Phil Sheridan's forces in the Shenandoah Valley. As a major, he commanded the First Maryland Cavalry and Second Maryland Cavalry, supporting Brig. Gen. George Steuart's infantry brigade. Remarkably, after the war, he became president of a veterans group that included old soldiers from the Union and the Confederate armies. He also became the Baltimore City Police Commissioner from 1874 to 1879. He succumbed to complications of a war wound when he was only 45 years old. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.
