Synopsis

US HISTORY/Civil War The author has fit his great Grandfather's single line Civil War diary into a narrative that would give breath and color to the experiences. The result is a fascinating narrative, with historic references and annotations that give depth of meaning to such entries as sample on 1 July 1863: "We was about tuckered." The compiler explains why: Amos's poorly shod 16th Regiments of Vermont Volunteers had marched 138 miles in six days, through Virginia, across the Potomac River, and on through Maryland, to finally reach Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The first half of the book has explanations, references, annotations, and illustrations to complement the diary. The second half has a transcription of the diary itself, which cover 1862 to 1863.
