Otsego County In The Civil War
This collection of letters, memoirs, newspaper articles, and diary entries; from Otsego County in central New York; has now been revised and greatly expanded for the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War.
This book portrays what the soldiers went through and how they felt the initial excitement of enlistment, adjusting to camp life, and what they experienced with the despair and horrors of battle. The newspaper articles from the home front reveal a picture of how this county dealt with the issues of slavery and abolition before the war, and provide a glimpse of how they honored the combatants after the war.
