This work presents an engaging account of a young Union soldier. In 1884, when Albert O. Marshall published ""Army Life"", a memoir of his service as a private in the Thirty-Third Illinois Regiment, twenty years had passed since his 1861 discharge. At publication, Marshall left the journal untouched, and today it is a journal that is rare in what it is not. This memoir is not a complete story of the Thirty-Third (known as the 'Normal Regiment' because many of its soldiers were from Illinois State Normal University), nor is it a complete roster of regiment members, nor a list of killed and wounded. ""Army Life"" is not, even, a purely military account written from an officer's point of view. It is the story of a twenty-year-old private whose engaging writing belies his age but also allows his youth to shine through. Marshall tells of the battles he fought and the games he played, of his friends, fellow soldiers, and officers, and of the regiment's activities in Missouri and Arkansas, at Vicksburg, and in Louisiana and on the Texas Gulf Coast. Enhanced with careful editing and thorough annotations, this journal Marshall carried faithfully to every mustering out is a rich and important Civil War memoir.
