This is the second of two volumes in a collection of Civil War letters written by Vermont soldiers to their hometown paper, the Rutland Herald, while they served in the infantry, the artillery, and in Vermont's highly regarded cavalry regiment. Included are tales of campaigns from Louisiana to Virginia, and from the Shenandoah Valley to the Carolina coast. The soldiers garrison lonely bayou outposts, stand to their guns in defense of Washington, and ride to glory with George Armstrong Custer. The book is illustrated with 26 engravings and prints, 15 maps, and 22 historical photographs.
