Overview

"The heroism of the men in the Eleventh Battalion Georgia Light Artillery is a story that needs to be told. They typify those who voluntarily left their homes in the North and South and offered their lives to support a cause in which they believed."
-Jimmy Carter, former president of the United States

"Speicher brings to life not only the battle activities, but also the personal and camp life [of the artillerymen]. It is like stepping back into history. The Sumter Flying Artillery would make an excellent Hollywood movie."
-Dr. Donald McLellan, Walden University

"James Speicher has done an outstanding job researching and chronicling the history of this unsung battalion of artillery in its service with the principal army of the Confederacy. . . . In addition, his appendixes prove most useful for those readers who are not familiar with specifics of artillery and those who are interested in the military service of the men in the battalion."
-R. W. Hatcher III, historian, Fort Sumter National Monument

"Speicher weaves an interesting story while he outlines the unit's action for the duration of the war in a manner that will hold your attention throughout the entire book. . . . The unique photographs and thorough individual war service record briefs make this book valuable as a research tool for personal, school, and public libraries alike."
-Ben C. Sewell III, executive director, Sons of Confederate Veterans
