Desperate Days: Last Hope of the Confederacy

After three years of war, with depleting manpower and resources, and a series of stinging defeats, the fate of the Confederacy seemed certain.  The South had to gamble, and take costly risks... and Tennessee would take center stage in that effort.  DESPERATE DAYS: LAST HOPE OF THE CONFEDERACY tells this remarkable story through the words and experiences of men, women, and children who shaped the events of the Civil War in Tennessee, or more often just tried to survive.
