In A Free Live Video Presentation

The XI Corps served in the Army of the Potomac for just twelve months (September 1862-August 1863), during which it played a pivotal role in the critical battles of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Thereafter, the corps hastened westward to reinforce a Union army in besieged Chattanooga, and marched through brutal December weather without adequate clothing, shoes, or provisions to help rescue a second Northern army under siege in Knoxville, Tennessee. Despite its sacrifices in the Eastern campaigns and successes in Tennessee, the reputation of the XI Corps is one of cowardice and failure. Under the Crescent Moon
(a reference to the crescent badge assigned to the corps) is the first study of this misunderstood organization.

Volume 2 - From Gettysburg to Victory, offers seven chapters on the XI Corps at Gettysburg, followed by a rich exploration of the corps’ participation in the fighting around Chattanooga, the grueling journey into Eastern Tennessee in the dead of winter, and its role in the Knoxville Campaign. In early 1864, the corps’ two divisions are broken up to serve elsewhere. Drawing extensively on primary sources Pula allows the participants to speak directly to readers as he follows their experiences through to the war’s successful conclusion.

James S. Pula is a Professor of History Emeritus at Purdue University Northwest and the editor-in-chief of Gettysburg Magazine. Dr. Pula is the author or editor of more than two dozen books, including Under the Crescent Moon with the Eleventh Corps in the Civil War, winner of the U. S. Army Historical Foundation Distinguished Writing Award; The Civil War from Its Origins to Reconstruction; For Liberty and Justice: A Biography of Brig. Gen. Włodzimierz B. Krzyżanowski; and The Sigel Regiment: A History of the 26th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, 1862-1865, winner of the Gambrinus Prize in History from the Milwaukee County Historical Society.
