Book Description

September 30, 2012 0786448725 978-0786448722
Until its soldiers mustered out of service in mid-1864, the Pennsylvania Reserve Division was one of only a few one-state divisions in the Union army. Known as the Pennsylvania Reserves, or simply the Reserves, the division saw action in most of the major battles of the Civil War, including Mechanicsville, New Market Crossroads, Second Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania Court House. This history chronicles the division's service from its organization in May 1861 through June 1864, when most of its soldiers reached the end of their service commitment. The book includes short biographical sketches, most with photographs, of the Reserves leadership. Throughout, excerpts from letters, journals, diaries, and books from more than 150 members of the Reserves provide a personal perspective on the action and reveal the human side of battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civil War History At It's Best April 3, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This modern history of a famous Civil War division was long overdue The author provides a clear strong narrative and covers every aspect of the Reserves in detail. The battle descriptions are well-done and easily comprehended by readers unfamiliar with the Civil War. Another strong point is the numerous and detailed biographies of the officers who served with the Reserves during the war. General Ent is a fine military historian; his impressive research serves as a firm foundation for this in-depth picture of one of the Union's finest divisions.
