Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This skillfully edited and annotated collection of Abbott's Civil War letters presents no new revelations about the conflict but will be appreciated nonetheless by scholars and enthusiasts alike for its accessibility. Abbott, a youthful Harvard graduate who served as a field officer in the 20th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry until his death in the Wilderness Campaign, wrote in a lively modern style. His letters describing life in the army of the Potomac are honest, highly readable, and full of detail. Editor Scott provides chapters about Abbott's early life and death in battle and a model bibliographic essay. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am very anxious to read this book completely. The author is related to me and the civil war is a very interesting period in American history.
