"Very well-done regimental history...not only describes some of the most pivotal battles of the Civil War but also transports the reader into the unheralded and overlooked backwaters...one of the most comprehensive histories of the war in the West that I have seen. This book goes beyond the narrow perspective of the average regimental history. I enjoyed reading the extensive, unedited excerpts from letters to local newspapers. They went beyond descriptions of skirmishes and killing. I recommend it as a primer for [the Civil War in the West]." --Civil War News
