C. L. Bragg
C. L. Bragg is the author of Distinction in Every Service: Brigadier General Marcellus A. Stovall, C.S.A. and coauthor of the critically acclaimed Never for Want of Powder: The Confederate Powder Works in Augusta, Georgia, also published by the University of South Carolina Press. Bragg's interest in William Moultrie was sparked while researching his family's South Carolina heritage and his personal connection to the Revolutionary War.
"Carefully researched and written, Crescent Moon over Carolina is recommended for both undergraduate and graduate students of southern history."—Michael P. Morris, The Journal of Southern History
"This biography of Moultrie is certainly needed. It will become the standard reference for any researcher interested in virtually any aspect of Moultrie's life and career . . ."—South Carolina Historical Magazine
"Crescent Moon over Carolina offers an engaging narrative, detailed maps and beautiful illustrations that will stand as an important addition to the body of literature for those interested in Revolutionary SC."—Lowcountry Companion
"Bragg offers a rich narrative into the day-to-day activities of Moultrie leading up to the battle, and covers other military events in the South in detail."—J. Mercantini, Choice Magazine
"C.L. Bragg provides the most in-depth examination to date of the life of William Moultrie. His highly readable prose is supported by deep, scholarly research that reveals both the public and private life of Moultrie, who played a critical role in both the Revolutionary War and the history of the early Republic."—David K. Wilson, author of The Southern Strategy: Britain's Conquest of South Carolina and Georgia, 1775-1780.
"Crescent Moon over Carolina is the saga of a man who was the very epitome of a statesman: a man of principle, integrity, and courage—in public office, in civic affairs, in uniform, and in private life. In this first-ever biography of William Moultrie, C. L. Bragg has eloquently captured the man and his times."—Walter Edgar, author of South Carolina: A History
"C.L. Bragg's Crescent Moon over Carolina is a welcome and refreshing look at one of South Carolina's traditional heroes. An excellent addition to the history and biography of the Revolutionary War, Bragg's work provides a thoroughly researched, new perspective on both the triumphs and tragedies of Moultrie's military career and private life."—Carl P. Borick, author of A Gallant Defense: The Siege of Charleston, 1780, and Relieve Us of This Burthen: American Prisoners of War in the Revolutionary South, 1780-1782
"Long overdue, C. L. Bragg's biography of William Moultrie admirably fills a major gap in South Carolina, Revolutionary War, and American history. Well researched and written Crescent Moon over Carolina places Moultrie in his rightful place alongside Francis Marion and Thomas Sumter in the pantheon of the state's heroes in the War for Independence."—Richard W. Hatcher III, historian, Fort Sumter National Monument
