About this Book

The most valuable sources for historians studying Confederate and Federal units are accounts written by the soldiers themselves. Consistent with the mission of Regimental Studies, Inc. and with The Museum of the confederacy's continuing effort to make its collections accessible to the public, this issue of Civil War Regiments features previously unpublished materials from the Museum's rich manuscript collections. Topics include:

  • Introduction
  • Regimental History Research Sources at The Museum of the Confederacy
  • "The Sun never shined on a braver & truer Set of Soldiers": The 14th Tennessee Infantry Regiment
  • "What I Know I Know, and I dare express it": The History of the 40th Georgia Infantry in the Vicksburg Campaign
  • "In the Field and on the Town with the Washington Artillery": Selections from the Documents in The Museum of the Confederacy Collections
  • Book Reviews
  • Index
