Format: Paperback
Mr. Hines' extensive work on Connecticut Volunteers is a very good start for anyone looking into the experience of Connecticut volunteer troops in the Civil War. He has used this book to compile data on these men that would otherwise be spread across numerous primary and secondary sources, and should be well commended for what must have been an exhaustive undertaking.

That having been said, I found some errors, or perhaps decisions made intentionally, by the author that were rather perplexing. I work in a historical library in Hartford, Connecticut, and have the luxury of access to the 1889 Records of Connecticut Men in the War of the Rebellion on a daily basis. Not knowing this book existed, and being very interested in the data surrounding Connecticut troops in the Civil War, I compiled a series of spreadsheets and Word documents with each Regiment's service record, including all its battle and losses sustained in each...very similar to what Mr. Hines has done in his book. Having done so, I am quite perplexed that, using the very same primary source as I did, Mr. Hines either did not or chose not to include a statistical category for men fatally wounded in a given engagement. The exclusion of this category only makes sense (to me), if you include the number of mortally wounded men with the killed in action, since death was the result of the wound even if it did not come on the field itself. Mr. Hines includes the fatally wounded along with the wounded, and does not specify how many of the wounded died of them, leading the reader to believe that all of these wounded men survived their wounds. For example:

Hines lists the 16th Connecticut Volunteers as losing 44 men killed at the Battle of Antietam, with 1 man missing, and 159 wounded.

This book is basically a compilation of facts from two volumes of Ct State Records on Volunteers during the Civil War. I have the earliest version of the State book, from 1869 and it was revised in 1889. The Hines book uses mostly material from the later more correct version of the tome. Data is organized and presented so you can trace the actions and men of the various units from CT as they evolved during the War. A very useful resource for quick searches of who fought in what unit and where. Also has info on what happened to these men (captured, deserted, re-enlisted etc). If you are into CT history or the Civil War, a fine book to own.

Format: Paperback
An excellent and thorough collage of disparate, previously hard-to-access details about Connecticut participants in the American Civil War! His workaday knowledge of regimental regalia and its significance and that of numerous accoutrements of the time have produced an enjoyable experience, both on and off the page!

This is a one-of-a-kind reference book for any serious researcher of Connecticut Civil War history. A historian or advanced Civil War reader will find himself picking up this book time and time again to check out an ocean of statistics regarding the boys in blue who fought in the war from the Nutmeg State.
