I have wondered for years what my great-grandfather did in the War.
He served in the 1st Maine Cavalry, Company G from January, 1864 (enlisted at age 18) to March, 1865 when he was discharged. I knew
that from his discharge certificate. What I didn't know was that he was discharged as a result of wounds suffered in the Battle of Dinwiddie Courthouse, Virginia.
This well written, extensively documented and detailed book answered that question. It described the battle to the extent that I could almost feel him being shot!
I recommend this book to other "Sons of The War of the Rebellion" whose ancestor served in the 1st Maine.
