First edition. Howes C-191: "100 copies printed." Nevins I, p. 67: "Singularly unique, for this volume is composed largely of the letters from the field of four Massachusetts brothers; all served in the Army of the Potomac." Mullins Union Bookshelf 13: "Best of personal reminiscences ... provides a vivid picture of the life of a Union soldier." The author also served in the later Indian wars of the West, publishing a number of highly sought accounts of those experiences.
