The book contains eight letters written to Simon from a school mate, Miss C. E. Churchill and one from a cousin who interrupts her own letter by writing: "Oh my, Rouse has just come in with dreadful news. He says the report is that they have shot Lincoln, but we can’t believe it." Very few letters written to soldiers have been preserved and are extremely rare.
"Food, taste, smells, feelings come alive
through these letters... Here then is a portrait
of the Army of the Potomac's soldiers from the ground up! It comes at an inexpensive price
and will provide many hours of enjoyment and enlightenment." Benjamin F. Cooling, "The Civil War Courier"
"You have done a magnificent job of editing,your
and other family papers." Philip P. Mason, Distinguished Professor of History, Wayne State University
"I congratulate you on the content, the
high level of scholarship, and the
attractiveness of your book." Clifford P. Lillya, Earl V. More Professor, University of Michigan
"Anyone interested in history in general,
or the Civil War in particular,
will find this book fascinating. I reommend it highly." Andrew Grgurich, "U.P. Books"
