    1. A regimental style history of the most famous artillery battalion of the Army of Northern Virginia written by its Adjutant.

    2. Great book on the War Between the States and only one who tells story from the common soldier view The Washington Artillery in N.O is a famous unit which still exists today It fought in every war My Great Grandfather, Paul T Patin, joined the unit at 16 years old and served until Appamattox end He was only a private and I am sure the thousands of deaths and injuries he witnessed had a lasting effect on his life Paul is listed in this book as a private in the Third Company.

    3. This is a valuable addition for any Civil War student This is on my list of to read again My great great grandfather gave his life in service wearing Blue But in reading this I felt as if it were my family s record of the honor and horror of our War from within.
