Great book on the War Between the States and only one who tells story from the common soldier view. The Washington Artillery in N.O. is a famous unit which still exists today. It fought in every war. My Great Grandfather, Paul T. Patin, joined the unit at 16 years old and served until Appamattox (end). He was only a private and I am sure the thousands of deaths and injuries he witnessed had a lasting effect on his life. Paul is listed in this book as a private in the Third Company.

This is a valuable addition for any 'Civil War' student. This is on my list of "to read again". My great-great grandfather gave his life in service wearing 'Blue'. But in reading this I felt as if it were my family's record of the honor and horror of our 'War from within'.
