Abstract:

"This is a war journal that moves humans to the front lines, rather than battles and strategies. It is a war journal written nearly thirty years after the fact with all the humor, irony, and sadness that one would expect such a removal to bring. Being aware that three decades would also bring forgetfulness, Sprott enlisted the aid of fellow veterans, who regularly sent emendations to his weekly writings in a local paper.

The collation and publication of this journal is not only a boon to all American Civil War buffs, it is a boon to understanding our own American past."--Jacket.
