Overview -
"He was as great a writer as he was a fighter." --Albert Castel, Civil War Times Illustrated.

Written by one of the Civil War's most celebrated officers, a hero of Gettysburg, this classic book offers a remarkable first-hand account of the final campaign of the Army of the Potomac. This is one of the finest accounts of a campaign penned by a Federal soldier.

He fought with the Twentieth Maine at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his role in the Battle of Gettysburg at Little Round Top.
