Curmudgeons, Drunkards, and Outright Fools: The Courts-Martial of Civil War Union Colonels - Lowry, Thomas P, M.D., and Davis, William C (Foreword by)

During the Civil War, a Union colonel was five times more likely to be court-martialed than a private. Among the court-martialed transgressors presented in this volume are an officer nicknamed 'Stumpy' because he tended to hide behind tree stumps during combat and a man tried for calling his superior a 'miserable reptile'.
