WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY KENT MASTERSON BROWN

Winner of the General Basil W. Duke Award for best Civil War reprint

A riveting view of frontline Civil War action at Shiloh, Baton Rouge, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Atlanta, and many other crucial battles.

John W. Green (1841-1920), an enlisted man with Kentucky’s famed Confederate Orphan Brigade throughout the Civil War, fought at Shiloh, Baton Rouge, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Atlanta and many other crucial battles. An acute observer with a flair for humanizing the impersonal horror of war, he kept a record of his experiences, and penned an exciting front-line account of America’s defining trial by fire. A.D. Kirwan provides a brief history of the Orphan Brigade and a biography of Johnny Green. Introductions to each chapter explain references in the journal and also set the context for the major campaigns.
