Blood & Sacrifice
The Civil War Journal
of a Confederate Soldier

By William Pitt Chambers

     A schoolteacher turned soldier, William Pitt Chambers served three years in the Army of Vicksburg and the Army of Tennessee, rising in rank from private to sergeant, orderly sergeant, sergeant major and acting adjutant of the 46th Mississippi Infantry Regiment. His 1862-1865 journal provides an open window to the hopes, dreams and fears of an intelligent, thoughtful Confederate enlisted man, and also chronicles nearly the entire history of his company and regiment through daily life and death in camp, on the march and in battles fought at Vicksburg, Port Gibson, Dallas, Kennesaw Mountain, Atlanta, Allatoona, Franklin and Fort Blakely.
