Overview

Raised from Rhode Island farmers and millworkers in the autumn of 1861, the Union soldiers of Battery G fought in such bloody conflicts as Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, and Cedar Creek. At the storming of Petersburg on April 2, 1865, seven cannoneers were awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism in the face of the enemy. This history captures the battlefield exploits of the "Boys of Hope" but also depicts camp life, emerging cannon technology, and the social events of the Civil War.

Editorial Reviews

Civil War Books and Authors
Good battery studies do not exactly abound in the Civil War literature, making Grandchamp's book all the more important, both as a font of information and an example for others to follow. The Boys of Adams' Battery G is a fine unit history. Highly recommended
