The Marching Twelfth: The Story of the Twelfth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry Regiment as Told by the Men Who Served In It - edited by Peggy M. Singer. This book is about the experiences of the Twelfth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry during the Civil War as told by the men. The information has been abstracted from a rare book entitled, The Story of Company E of the Twelfth Wisconsin Regiment of Veteran Volunteer Infantry in the War of the Rebellion, Beginning with September 7, 1861 and ending July 21, 1865. This book was compiled after a reunion of the Twelfth—the men wanted their story to be shared with future generations. Although shortened to a more readable length, the history of the regiment has been retained and the most dramatic events told in the words of men who experienced them. The chapters include: Camp Randall to Kansas; the Vicksburg Campaign; Jackson to Natchez; the Meridian Campaign; Kennesaw Mountain; Nickajack Creek; The Battle for Atlanta; the Battles of Ezra Church, Jonesboro, & the Pursuit of Hood; the March to the Sea and the Carolina Campaign. A full roster of the men who fought for the Twelfth is included. This is a must have for anyone interested in the Civil War! (2002), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 202 pp.
