Description

NEW 2012 Second Edition. This work is based on a 3-year collection of letters and diaries by American Civil War Union soldier George W. Belles, the great-great-grandfather of the author's wife, a member of 139th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers. Included are passionate and detailed narratives of both on and off the battlefield experiences; excruciating physical hardships endured; an occasional wondrous high and numerous agonizing lows. What prompted the author to produce this book was the following from the diary: "This book I trust shall live when I with my companions in the army have passed away. I want its pages kept secure for generations to come for their benefit and good of all. Who may chance to read it preserve it reader in remembrance of me." With minimal editing, arranged in chronological order and grouped into chapters by a prevailing theme, George's writings take the reader along with this exceptional man on his extraordinary 33-month American Civil War journey.
