Overview

COMPANY AYTCH has reigned as one of the most memorable and honest depictions of the American Civil War since its original publication in 1882. Sam R. Watkins’s firsthand account of life as a Confederate soldier eloquently captured the realities of war, the humor and pathos of soldiering, and the tragic, historic events in which he participated. Although there have been other versions of Company Aytch published, this is the first with new material and revisions by Sam Watkins himself. Featuring over forty images, including his own pencil-marked edits, this volume combines the ageless text with Sam’s intended revisions—at once an incredible memoir of one man’s experience during war and the story that forever shaped American history.

Meet the Author

Samuel R. Watkins (1839–1901) was born in 1839 near Columbia, Tennessee. He enlisted into the First Tennessee Infantry, Company H at the beginning of the Civil War. Upon surrender, Watkins was one out of only seven men remaining from the 120 originally listed in his regiment. Encouraged by friends and family, Watkins first published his memories as a newspaper series and then finally in book form in 1882. His great-granddaughter Ruth Hill Fulton McAllister earned a bachelor’s degree in History from Vanderbilt University, and lives in Columbia, Tennessee.

I enjoyed reading Company "H" because it is real history as viewed by this CSA soldier. I would recommend this book to history buffs or anyone interested in the Civil War period.
