I was asked about a year ago if the publisher could borrow my copy so that he could republish the book and was glad to see history being preserved. I have 2 ancestors that were in the same regiment and knew each other- one on my mother's side and one on my father's side. The book gave me a true perspective of what my ancestors faced on a daily basis during the war. I have read the book several times and always learn something new from it. One example being that the troops were so hungry and without food that they picked through the dirt and mud to get crackers that had been crushed and left behind. I look back at the pictures of my great great grandfathers as old men and try to imagine them being that hungry on their knees looking for cracker crumbs. For the individual who is interested in history and daily camp life of this period I highly recommend the book.
