A War of the People covers the war chronologically, with editor Jeffrey D. Marshall providing running commentary on both the war overall and Vermonters' experiences. Supplemented with maps and photographs, it includes many voices--from privates to colonels, mothers, wives, and best friends, young and old--writing about battles, camp life, family matters, and much more. An African-American soldier from Hinesburg, a French-Canadian soldier who enlisted in Milton, and dozens of others record their experiences in unforgettable words. Marshall's battlefront/homefront choice of letters provides a deeper understanding of the social and political dimensions that, although secondary to military concerns, were an intergral part of Vermont's war years.
