Writing and Fighting the Civil War: Soldier Correspondence to the New York Sunday Mercury based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
'Writing and Fighting the Civil War' is, without a doubt, one of the finest collections of Union Civil War soldier letters ever published. This vast, but eminently readable, compilation covers the war from beginning to end, on land and at sea. It provides valuable insights into the life of the Union fighting man in camp and on the march, as well as in battle. Mr. Styple deserves to be thanked for culling these extraordinary eyewitness accounts from stacks of dusty newspapers and blurry rolls of microfilm and making them available to the public.
