From President Lincoln's 1861 call-to-arms through General Lee's surrender at Appomattox in 1865, this volume details the Civil War experiences of the 11th Wisconsin Volunteers as they traveled over 9000 miles in the service of their country. Taking a look at the attitude prevalent in Wisconsin at the start of the Civil War, it discusses the background of the men who comprised the regiment, 72 percent of whom were farmers. Compiled primarily from the letters and diaries of the men who served in the 11th Wisconsin, the work focuses on the firsthand, day-to-day experiences of the common soldier including rations (or lack thereof), clothing, disease, and, at times, the simple act of waiting. Losing more men to disease than to battle, the 11th Wisconsin presents an accurate picture not only of the heroic but also the sometimes humdrum yet perilous existence of the wartime soldier.
