Chicago to Appomattox: The 39th Illinois Infantry in the Civil War (Paperback)Jason B. Baker (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
While most Illinois regiments fought in the west, the 39th marched through the Shenandoah Valley to fight Stonewall Jackson, to Charleston Harbor for the Second Battle of Fort Sumter and to Richmond for the year-long siege at Petersburg. This book chronicles day-to-day life in the regiment, the myriad factors that determined its path, and the battles fought by the Chicagoans-including two Medal of Honor recipients-who fired some of the last shots before the Confederate surrender.
