Confederate Generals of North Carolina provides a brief but compelling biography of each of the forty-eight Confederate Generals who served from North Carolina during the Civil War. Each biography includes in addition to the war service a summary of a general's prewar and postwar careers. Author Joe Mobley (editor of the North Carolina Historical Review) also discusses the generals collectively: how many were killed or wounded, who attended West Point before the war, who achieved the highest levels of success both on and off the battlefield, and more.
