Summary

Summary

You (the reader) are a farmer living in Connecticut. Shortly after eleven southern states secede from the Union, you decide to Join the Union Army to fight in the civil war. As a soldier in the Union Army you will get an insider's look at what life was like for Union and Confederate soldiers and an overview of some of the most important battles, such as the Battle of Bull Run, The Seesaw Battles of 1862, Gettysburg, and Vicksburg. After reading this book there will be no doubt in your mind that this is definitely a war you'd rather not fight.
