The 27th Alabama Infantry served three years and four months in eight states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, and North and South Carolina. The soldiers from Northern Alabama were engaged in more than twenty battles, besides hundreds of skirmishes, some of which were almost as destructive to the small number engaged as many battles fought. The thoughts and reactions of Private J. P. Cannon, 27th Alabama Infantry, take the reader into the Civil War through his eyes. This most uncommon viewpoint takes the reader on a journey through times and places not seen by many Civil War historians. The reader will feel the emotions of this infantryman and his regiment as he traces his war years from activation to surrender.
