Letters offer a deeply personal perspective of the war, and remind us that every one of the hundreds of thousands of brave men that died during the four brutal years of the Civil War was someone's father, or son, or brother, or husband. Numerous first-hand accounts of the harsh realities of war have been published, often including or comprised of the letters of survivors. This unique volume contains the final correspondence written by brave soldiers that did not survive the conflict: some died on the battlefield during combat; others understood they were about to die of wounds received in batt...

Born in New Jersey in 1818 and a graduate of West Point in 1843, Samuel G. French won distinction in the Mexican War as a lieutenant of light artillery, serving in the same company with Braxton Bragg, George H. Thomas and John F. Reynolds. He was actively engaged at Palo Alto, Resaca and Monterey, receiving two brevets for gallantry and a serious leg wound in the battle of Buena Vista. Settling later in Mississippi, he readily immersed himself in Southern culture. With the outbreak of war in 1861 French, despite his Northern birth, plainly proved that the South did not have a more dev... View more info

Both the First and Second Maryland Artillery served with distinction with the Army of Northern Virginia for nearly the entire war. Both units suffered extensive losses (killed, wounded and captured) and both units were, as their names imply, made up mainly of men from Maryland. This is their story, presented in the words of the members of the units whenever possible. Material was often gleaned from unpublished manuscripts. The first leader of the First Maryland Artillery, Richard Snowden Andrews, was wounded so severely at the Battle of Cedar Run that no one expected him to live. But he did, w... View more info

Composed of yeomen from the "butternut" portion of Ohio, the 116th Ohio Volunteer Infantry fought with distinction in some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War. Colonel James Washburn acknowledged the unit's distinguished combat record during an address following the Battle of Cedar Creek in October 1864: "You have made for your regiment a name and a fame that will outlive you all, and to which your children and your children's children will point with pride in the years of the future." The 116th was present at Appomattox when General Lee surrendered to ensure that they cou... View more info

Between 1861 and 1865 the United States was divided by a bloody conflict that claimed over 630,000 lives. During those terrible years Americans killed one another, burned cities to the ground, and marched across the land as if they were a pestilential cloud of locust. That conflagration has come down through the years to be known as the American Civil War. Yet, despite the fact that thousands of books and articles have been written about the people, places, and things that made up the Civil War, it remains all too easy to forget that its participants were everyday people.

It has been said that of all the towns impacted by the Civil War, none suffered more than Fredericksburg, Virginia, which changed hands ten times during the course of the war, was the scene of two major battles, and was pillaged and sacked without mercy. The once prosperous town was left desolate, and the once wealthy residents were reduced to poverty. Of all those who lived in Fredericksburg, none suffered more than the people of very modest means who lived on the edge of town along the Sunken Road. Their bullet-riddled homes were located right on the battleground of both the Battles of Frede... View more info
