Excerpt from Southern Martyrs: A History of Alabama's White Regiments During the Spanish-American War, Touching Incidentally on the Experiences of the Entire First Division of the Seventh Army Corps<br><br>History ranks in the class of compensatory literature be cause truth is its essence. Southern Martyrs is intended as a truthful narrative. Imagery has been abandoned for accuracy. Such truths in these chapters as may pain indi vidually are calculated to benefit generally through the les sons they teach. And, therefore, though the few compari sons employed may be reckoned by some as odious, though the descriptions given and the facts recited may earn the resentment of. Some and the gratification of others, the author will feel his object attained if the book succeeds in extend ing the agitation for a military regimen under which Amer ican patriots will cease to suffer such martyrdom as Miami.<br><br>To the surviving members of the First and Second Ala bama, Southern Martyrs may prove useful for souvenir and record purposes. Great pain has been taken to chron iole in unbiased verbiage those incidents that really compose regimental history. Necessarily, many episodes of interest are omitted, because to print all would be practically im possible and to select only some would be as unsatisfactory to the majority of the two regiments as it would be embar rassing to the author.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
