FREE this week exclusively for the Kindle.

While many volumes have been written on the war from any number of perspectives and the “top 100 battles” have been dissected in excruciating detail, most of these 6,000 events lie largely unexplored and forgotten.

While we lament the thousands of casualties at Chickamauga, Shiloh, Pea Ridge, Stones River, Franklin, Kennesaw, Fredericksburg, Second Manassas, Gettysburg, Chancellorsville, Petersburg, et. al., I am always touched when I see an account of a minor event that states there were 23 Confederate and 41 Union killed. These “minor” events represent the shattering of 64 families, each with a story to tell of their loss of fathers, brothers, uncles and dreams.

This work focuses on uncovering and telling those stories. It is not our intent or objective to refight the war, but to uncover and document the stories of these families in the war.

We will necessarily limit the scope of our writings when we reach the major battles of ’62 and ’63, but our focus will always be on uncovering as many first hand accounts as possible.

It is our intent to release on Sunday of each week an accounting of the events which occurred that week 150 years ago. We will publish this week’s volume for the Kindle on Amazon FREE for Sunday through Thursday of each week.

This volume is excerpted from our multi-volume work, “All the Battles of the Civil War” which gives a narrative account of the more than 5,000 events which occurred in the war. This work runs to more than 2,700 pages and forms the basis of our series of “Historical Sketch and Roster” volumes on each of the more than 6,000 units formed for both the Union and the Confederacy.
