The missives of Civil War soldiers have been eagerly read by the general public and the serious scholar for over 130 years. These letters by Capt. Samuel Wheelock Fiske, a minister who served from Antietam to the Wilderness with the Army of the Potomac's 14th Connecticut volunteers, will be popular with both groups. A prewar correspondent and humorist for the Springfield Republican, he continued writing during the conflict under the pseudonym Dunn Browne, informing and entertaining readers with his experiences and opinions on a wide range of political, military, religious, and social topics. The letters were originally compiled for an 1866 edition of the same name. The annotations by respected historian Sears (e.g., Chancellorsville, LJ 1/97) add to the value of the letters and make this edition more useful as well as accessible.
