MEDIA REVIEWS

"One Michigan farm boy, who wrote [during the Civil War], I don t no wat is a going on, and proved his point repeatedly, eventually attracted a modern scholar willing to explain wat to posterity. Books of routine and redundant soldier letters form a thicket that conceals those of value. One truly remarkable and incisive soldier s account, privately published in a small edition in 1906, has become a neglected classic."John Y. Simon, from the Foreword"
