Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Tells the exciting tale of a highly ambitious Frenchman who commanded a New York Regiment during the American Civil War.

Millions of soldiers and civilians passionately supported one side or the other in the American Civil War. For Colonel Lionel Jobert d’Epineuil of the Fifty-Third New York Volunteer Regiment, however, his own advancement mattered more than the outcome of the conflict. This biography analyzes the remarkable exploits of a man driven by ambition—and unhindered by scruples—to attain position and prestige in the Atlantic region during the second half of the nineteenth century.

Lionel Jobert (1829–1881) was born in France, but is described as having an Atlantic identity. A ship captain by trade, Jobert exploited unstable governmental conditions in Haiti and the United States to pursue his private interests. Drawing on previously unused sources, Stephen D. Bosworth allows us to view the Civil War from the perspective of a foreign participant whose life constitutes one colorful tile in the vast mosaic that makes up the history of the nineteenth-century Atlantic.

Stephen D. Bosworth is Professor of History at Austin Community College in Austin, Texas.
