We see the Moody family making the difficult journey from their New England home to northern Ohio in the 1830's and going by way of the newly opened Erie Canal A few years later, hard times made it necessary for Loman to give up his business in Ohio and return to New England. While in Elyria, Kate Moody met the man who was to become her husband, William L. Smith, a widower with five children. Six of their own were added to this family. When she was fifty and he sixty-six, they felt the urge of Horace Greeley's slogan, "Go West, young man!" and set out for Washington Territory, where two of their sons had preceded them. ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 252 pages;

Brigadier General John D. Imboden  Confederate Commander in the Shenandoah, Tucker, Spencer C.
204 Tucker, Spencer C. Brigadier General John D. Imboden Confederate Commander in the Shenandoah
The University Press of Kentucky 2002 081312266X / 9780813122663 First Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed bookplate in front of book to former owner and signed by author. John D. Imboden is an important but often overlooked figure in Civil War history. With only limited militia training, the Virginia lawyer and politician rose to the rank of brigadier general in the Confederate Army and commanded the Shenandoah Valley District, which had been created for Stonewall Jackson.

Imboden organized and led the Staunton Artillery in the capture of the U.S. arsenal at Harper’s Ferry. He participated in the First Battle of Bull Run/Manassas and organized a cavalry command that fought alongside Stonewall Jackson in his Shenandoah Valley Campaign. The Jones/Imboden Raid into West Virginia cut the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and ravaged the Kanawha Valley petroleum fields. Imboden covered the Confederate withdrawal from Gettysburg and later led cavalry accompanying Jubal Early in his operations against Philip Sheridan in Sheridan’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Imboden completed his war service in command of Confederate prisons in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Spencer C. Tucker fully examines the life of this Confederate cavalry commander, including analysis of Imboden’s own post-war writing, and explores overlooked facets of his life, such as his involvement in the Confederate prison system, his later efforts to restore the economic life of his home state of Virginia by developing its natural resources, and his founding of the city of Damascus, which he hoped to make into a new iron and steel center.
