  • Biographical Sketches of the Commissioned Officers of the Confederate States Marine Corps

Biographical Sketches of the Commissioned Officers of the Confederate States Marine Corps tells the stories of the 58 officers commissioned in the Confederate States Marine Corps. This small band of men provided their new nation with a Marine Corps that would serve it both on ship and shore for the duration of the war. Founded by former United States Marine Corps officers, the efforts of this small group of gallants and rogues in combat and in garrison reflect the coastal and maritime struggles of the Confederate States as a whole.

Sullivan provides us with a completely revised and updated edition of the late Ralph W. Donnelly's groundbreaking and long-out-of-print book. Greatly expanded and including new images, this work is a valuable companion to Donnelly's The Confederate States Marine Corps: The Rebel Leathernecks.
