Title: No Prouder Fate: The Story of the 11th South Carolina Volunteer Infantry
Author: Baxley, N.
BTC’s Take: Neil Baxley’s No Prouder Fate is a worthy addition to the South Carolina Regimental-Roster Set series from Broadfoot Publishing. The book focuses on a lesser known South Carolina regiment which only briefly served with the Army of Northern Virginia. The regimental history suffered a bit from lack of maps and a general lack of “voice” from the men who were there. Some readers may also note a partisan Confederate viewpoint from the author. Readers interested in the operations along the coast of the Carolinas and students of the Bermuda Hundred and Petersburg Campaigns will definitely want to own this book. Researchers, genealogists, and descendants of members of the 11th South Carolina will also find this a useful addition to their libraries.
