A Grassroots History of the American Civil War, Volume II: The Bully Seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry


Camp Dennison, Ohio, was the temporary home of the Seventh Ohio Volunteers. Many of them wrote letters to the local newspapers to spread the word to the people back home of their continued commitment to the Union cause. Friends and relatives of the soldiers also contributed their letters to the newspapers. Here are their first hand accounts of campaigns in Western Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley, the winter of 1861-1862, Winchester, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Chattanooga, Ringgold, the Atlanta Campaign and the aftermath. Includes footnotes, bibliography and index.
