Stunningly realistic digital effects bring the federal gunboats, Tyler and Lexington back to life and firing from the Tennessee river. What of that dedicated scholar, the advance seeker after possible unpublished battle documentation lying undiscovered in the National Archives?&nbsp The most abundant source of finds for such a person is the Union records.&nbsp There is no overall index that will neatly spell out what there may be on a Mine Run or a Murfreesboro, but patient, extended searching can yield material that will elevate a chronicle from the valuable to the invaluable.&nbsp Some series are reasonably straightforward, but a working knowledge of the units, commanders, and dates involved is indispensable.

Southern planters watched their slaves leave with dismay, having lived under the delusion that their "human property" saw them as patriarchs who provided daily protection from birth to death.
