Synopsis : A perceptive and detailed Civil War memoir of the First Minnesota Regiment chronicling such famous battles as Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Gettysburg. James A. Wright was an orderly sergeant in Company F of the First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment in the Civil War. His memoir, based on his diaries and letters, is the fullest personal account of the battles, marches, and soldier life of one of the most renowned regiments in the Army of the Potomac. The First took part in every significant battle and action in the war in the East from 1861 to 1864. In remarkable detail, he describes the fighting at Bull Run, the Peninsula Campaign, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, and Bristoe Station. At Gettysburg, the First Minnesota halted the Confederate charge and suffered an 82 percent casualty rate. Wright's account of the battle is striking in its description of the horror the men felt at facing their foes, their determination to do their duty, and the shock of the loss of so many of their comrades. With an eloquence rare in war memoirs, Wright recalls the long marches, the poor food, the inadequate shelter, the dedicated officers, the debilitating illnesses, the longing for home, and the sense of pride in carrying out the struggle to preserve the Union. For conveying what the Civil War meant to one man, it is unmatched.

Description de la librairie : My wife and I are inveterate book collectors who have accumulated large collections prior to our marriage. Cindy has collected modern firsts but has not listed many yet, and I have had a greater interest in Midwest history, sports, autographed editions, and non-fiction. We are now officially outta shelves and want to find good homes for some of our duplicates, tag-a-longs from buying collections, and other items that we have loved too much to put back. We are merely part-time book dealers with other full time work. We endeavor to grade strictly and describe accurately with true book collectors/lovers in mind. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for any reason for a full refund, excluding return shipping. We are also interested in buying Midwest history, archaeology, Indian history, auto racing, and autographed presidential books and journals.
