Men of Granite: New Hampshire's Soldiers in the Civil War by Duane E. Shaffer


pdf epub fb2 djvu



More than one-tenth of the total population of New Hampshire fought in the Civil War, and this book examines the development of these regiments from the years immediately preceding the conflict to their subsequent role in such seminal battles as Antietam, Bull Run and Gettysburg. Shaffer, a library director in the Granite State, uses a chronological format to describe the daily lives of soldiers and often uses journals and correspondence from these men to illustrates the hardships they endured. Civil War and history buffs will appreciate the meticulous manner in which these archives are presented, including several illustrations and maps of these events.
