About this product
- DescriptionVoices of Civil War soldiers rise from the pages of Heroes for All Time. This book presents the war straight from the minds and pens of its participants; rich passages from soldiers letters and diaries complement hundreds of outstanding period photographs, most previously unpublished. The soldiers moving experiences, thoughts, and images animate each chapter. Written accounts by nurses and doctors, soldiers families, and volunteers on the home front add intriguing details to our picture of the struggle, which claimed roughly 6,000 Connecticut lives. Rare war artifacts a bone ring carved on the battlefield or a wad of tobacco acquired from a rebel picket connect the reader to the men and boys who once owned them. From camp life to battle, from Virginia to Louisiana, from the opening shot at Bull Run to the cheering at Appomattox, Heroes for All Time tells the story of the war through vivid, personal portrayals.
