This is exceptionally well written book by a surviving Confederate soldier. Reading it, you feel you are living it. It's not just an account of battles or lists of men. Instead, you feel you are with this writer as he marches down a hot, dry, dusty road, sweaty & thirsty. You feel the lice crawl under your jacket collar. You understand the need to fight & win, because you just yearn to go home. You feel the monotony, the confusion, the fear, the misery, the pride. What a great view into what the writer calls this "horrid game of death" of 150 years ago.
After reviewing this book on this site, I am THRILLED to find a photo of Rev. J. Tyler Frazier, a brother to my GGGrandmother, Amanda Melvina Frazier Rogers, whose portrait hangs in my home. I am purchasing the book right now....and cannot wait to sit down and read it from cover to cover. Jane Crutchfield, Belchertown, Massachusetts.
