In the course of history, few human events have had so compelling an effect and left such a deep mark on the nation's soul as has the Civil War. New Hampshire in the Civil War presents a unique and concise pictorial chronicle of the state's volunteer regiments that served during the four very long and costly war years. This volume includes more than 200 vivid and accurate pictures depicting heroic battles scenes, maps, camp life, and more than 40 portraits of the men who served New Hampshire in battle. These chapters contain accounts of battles from the first bombardment of Fort Sumter to the sinking of the Alabama. Also included are glimpses of camp life, with its frying pan meals of "slosh" and the illnesses accompanied by "cold clammy sweat," and of the famous Libby Prison.
