The men of the Eighth Georgia Infantry Regiment answered the Confederate call to arms in the spring of 1861. They fought hard in most major battles of the war, including Bull Run and Gettysburg, enduring heartbreaking losses and finally, at Appomattox, witnessing their ultimate defeat. A Scythe of Fire tells the remarkable story of this regiment, which held together through long years of victory, defeat, and despair. The magnificent product of meticulous research, Warren Wilkinson and Steven E. Woodworth's stirring chronicle brings the conflict alive through the eyes of the courageous men who fought and died on the nation's battlefields. Based on personal accounts, diaries, letters, and other primary sources, A Scythe of Fire is the history of the Eighth Georgia as experienced by those who carried its standard into battle: doctors and farmers, landowners and simple folk -- each dedicated to victory, yet proud and unbroken in the face of defeat.

Preface
In Defense of Southern Rights
The Elite of the Town
I Go to Illustrate Georgia
A Report That Would Be Heard
Important Movements Are on Foot
To Belong to the Southern Army
Daughter of the Stars
They Would Rush into Danger
Those Halcyon Days in the Valley
We Knew Where We Were a Going
Never Give Up the Field
You Must Get There
Battle and Fighting Mean Death
Get Ready, Men!
I Could Hear the Bullets
That Place of Slaughter
We Have Whipped 'Em
What an Insignificant Creature One Man Is
All Quiet Along the Potomac
I Have Missed It
The Eighth Georgia Is Known
He Caused Them to Have Some Serious Thoughts
Nothing Unusual
Moped Up in a Tent
We Must Not Let the Yankees Take Richmond
The Blighting Effects of War
The Occasional Crack of a Rifle
The Idol of His Regiment
From Some Cause, Not Understood by Me
In Search of the Enemy
Resistless as an Ocean Tide
A Quiet but Deep Work
Deep and Stern Convictions of Duty
Our Generals Seem to Have Failed
Soldiers Must Know No Obstacles
The Grandest Sight I Ever Looked Upon
May the Lord Direct Me
Some of the Prettiest Fighting
We Can Whip Any Army
Much the Worse for Wear
We Could Riddle Him into Doll Rags
Safely Through Another Week
The Best Place to Move From
A Scythe of Fire
Quit Fooling with Them
Abolition Soil
Such as the Army Needs
Today We Shall Whip Them
A Splendid Line of Brave Men
Stand Up and Fight
The Valley of Death
We Had Not Won
The Frown of Heaven
The Worst Part of This War
Our Times Are in His Hands
Like Old Times at Home
