M.P. McConnell vividly exposes the chaos of the first days of the Civil War when the stakes were so high including new details about the “Old Sixth” Regiment’s camp conditions, health problems, number of Baltimore casualties, and discipline challenges at the end of its service. The medical practice of a 19th century New England doctor comes alive in the story along with details of the first amputation of the Civil War by Dr. Smith just steps away from the Capitol Rotunda in the then chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Richly illustrated with the first-ever gathering of period artwork and photographs chronicling the “Old Sixth” Regiment’s service, along with extensive research into archival collections with never before published first-hand accounts from letters, diaries, orderly books, and pension records--this work will appeal to the serious historian and non-historian alike!
