Overview

Although many books have depicted the roles of men and women in the Civil War, Dogs of War, on the other hand, contains important information on the roles that animal played in that brutal war. Few people know that many soldiers carried their pets with them when they went off to war, that dogs provided the recruits with both companionship and a connection to the home front, and that cats, birds and goats, not to mention Old Abe, the eagle, served as mascots.
