Colonel Oats served in many political offices after the war including Governor and Senator from Alabama. Colonel Oats gives a first hand account of the 48 battles the 15th Alabama Infantry Regiment engaged in during the war. Most notable was the battle of Gettysburg, in which the 15th Alabama engaged the 20th Maine, with Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain but also Shenandoah, 2nd Manassas, Fredericksburg and Chickamauga. Colonel Oates indicates how the south could have won this battle and the war and gives us his personnel opinion of slavery and the causes of the war, from someone who was actually there. He also gives eyewitness observations of the confederate Generals; Lee, Jackson, Longstreet and Stewart.
