This remarkable first volume covers the Union Army of the Cumberland (A of C) during the command of Maj. Gen. W.S. Rosecrans from Stone's River through Chickamauga. It was written shortly after Chickamauga, incredibly well researched, consists of short bios of the command and also includes excerpts from soldiers' letters, newspaper reports, police reports and official battle reports filed by the commanding officers of the North and South. The author had exceptional access to documents and wrote contemporaneously to events. He wrote to encourage the Union, but anyone interested in this period in Kentucky or Tennessee history will find it fascinating.
