Product Description

From Western Deserts to Carolina Swamps: A Civil War Soldier's Journals and Letters Home. Edited by John P. Wilson. While eyewitness accounts of the Civil War by enlisted men are uncommon, even scarcer are personal narratives from the Civil War in the West. These journals and letters were written by Lewis Roe, an Illinois farm boy who served in the 7th U.S. Infantry and the 50th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. They offer details of an epic march from Fort Bridger, Wyoming to New Mexico, and includes a firsthand account of the Battle of Valverde. University of New Mexico Press, 2012. Dust jacket.
