Southern Boy in Blue: The Memoir of Marcus Woodcock, 9th Kentucky Infantry (U. S. A.)

The Tennessean describes the action at Stones River, Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, and Corinth; his three- year rise from private to first lieutenant; and his shift of opinion about black troops and the re-election of Lincoln.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
