Abstract:

Of all the works relating to the War Between the States, not one is designed to record the camps of the men who spent most of their time in bivouac or encampments. More men died in various camps of disease and wounds from battle than died on the battlefield. Thousand of letters were written in these camps. Many have survived fires, floods, and the indifference of generations since they reached the homes of anxious friends and relatives. They record family history, the battles, the mood of the army, troop movements, activities in camp, the sickness, the death, and the sad and happy times whenever a letter was received form home. This book is an attempt to record the camps of Georgia's troops that were named in honor of the martyrs for the lost cause, prominent citizens, past and present leaders and those who gave of their time and resources to assist the men and boys in camp. Some were named for their location, and others reflected their moods or environment.
