At head of title: An American Civil War chronicle.

Bibliography: p. 346-348.

"[Bolivar] shares with us his impressions of the war and everyday life as a common soldier. Few subjects are left untouched. We learn of everything from weaponry and the art of killing lice to vivid descriptions of combat and survival in prison. He includes interesting assessments of his enemy, as both their captor and captive. With respect to the latter, Bolivar speaks with legitimate authority; he was captured and imprisioned at two locations early in the war but paroled to fight again. And finally, he was wounded, recaptured and sent to Andersonville Prison, Georgia, where he died"--Introd.

"The writings of Simon Bolivar Hulbert depict a brief but tumultuous period in the lives of a Union soldier and his family, and in the history of a young and troubled nation at war with itself. Herein is a chronicle, in diary and letter form, of one soldier's experiences from December 1861 to August 1864 while fighting and dying for a cause he considered moral. Simon Bolivar Hulbert... was neither an acclaimed fighting hero nor a leader of men. To the contrary, he was an obscure, almost nondescript foot soldier who never surpassed the rank of private. He was not associated with legendary battles such as Antietam or Gettysburg, but fought elsewhere and witnessed the same horrors of war. Death, fear and pain were no less traumatic in a minor battle than in a major, well publicized one."
