Synopsis

Suffering a casualty rate of more than 80 percent by the war's end, the Seventh Rhode Island participated in some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War. From its muster in the fall of 1862 through the death of the Seventh's last surviving veteran in 1939, this regimental history follows the Seventh from Providence, Rhode Island, through the swamps of the Mississippi to the grueling Overland Campaign, providing a gripping historical narrative enlivened by the words of those who were actually present. Researched primarily from firsthand sources such as letters and diaries, it includes period photographs, portraits and sketches.
