Abstract:

An intimate look at a young Norwich, Connecticut cavalry officer -- in war, love, and his attempts to strike it rich -- and his fierce ambition to make his mark in the Civil War and early Reconstruction. Lieutenant Colonel Charles Farnsworth's letters and diaries form the conerstone for this short biography about an adventurer who helped organize the First Connecticut Cavalry. The book covers "Charlie's" near-fatal shooting while searching for Confederate bushwackers in Virginia, his protests against incompetent Union leadership, his capture and confinement in Richmond's notorious Libby Prison, his romantic entanglements, his political connections with PResident Lincoln that sent him south in early 1865, and his tragic struggle to make his mark in Georgia during the early years of Reconstruction.
