Read full description of the books:
An inspiring narrative of a young Civil War soldier, as told through his letters from the battlefield.
In 1862 twenty-one-year-old Morris Brown Jr. left his studies at Hamilton College to take up the Union cause. He quickly rose in rank from sergeant major to captain and acting regimental commander for the 126th New York Volunteers. In letters written to his family in Penn Yan, New York, Brown describes his experiences at war: the unseemly carping between fellow officers, the fear that gripped men facing battle, and the longing to return home. Brown’s letters also reveal an ambitious young man who not only wanted recognition but also wanted to assure himself of a financial future. Above all, this is the story of a courageous young man, told mostly in his own words. Few Civil War soldiers were as articulate as Morris Brown Jr., fewer served in a regiment that saw so much combat, still fewer commanded a regiment at such a young age, and even fewer were recognized by the newly minted Medal of Honor.
“The pungent letters of Capt. Morris Brown Jr., of the 126th New York show us that ambition, bravery, and a willingness to scrap with fellow officers was alive and well in the Civil War. An interesting and lively look at the war experiences of a Medal of Honor winner and a survivor of Gettysburg, who gave his life for his country early in the Petersburg campaign. Thanks to Wayne Mahood for bringing these unusual letters to our attention.” — Earl J. Hess, author of In the Trenches at Petersburg: Field Fortifications and Confederate Defeat
