The American Civil War: A Handbook of Literature and Research

By Robin Higham; Steven E. Woodworth | Go to book overview

SCHOFIELD AND HOWARD

John M. Schofield gained his greatest Civil War fame at the Battle of Franklin ( 1864) and in the late nineteenth century served as commanding general of the army. His memoirs, Forty-Six Years in the Army ( 1897), are disappointing for their lack of introspection. A modern biography is James Lee McDonough, Schofield. Union General in the Civil War and Reconstruction ( 1972).

Better remembered for his work with the Freedman's Bureau and because Howard University is named after him, Oliver Otis Howard nonetheless played an important part in the Civil War in both the eastern theater and as part of Sherman's army in the West. He wrote an important memoir, Autobiography of Oliver Otis Howard, Major General, U.S. Army ( 1907). Two biographical accounts have been published: John A. Carpenter, Sword and Olive Branch: Oliver Otis Howard ( 1964), and William S. McFeely, Yankee Stepfather. General O. O. Howard and the Freedmen ( 1968).
