The Story of the Forty-Eighth : A Record of the Campaigns of the Forty-Eighth Regiment, Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry, During the Four Eventful Years of Its Service in the War for the Preservation of the Union (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Story of the Forty-Eighth: A Record of the Campaigns of the Forty-Eighth Regiment, Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Infantry, During the Four Eventful Years of Its Service in the War for the Preservation of the Union In the preparation of this work, which has required much labor and research, some slight error or misstatement of fact may have crept in; if such be found, let the reader be not too critical or severe, but remember that the events herein portrayed occurred over forty-two years ago. The object has been, in a general way, to add to the history of those stirring times the story of a Regiment proud of its achievements and inspired by the hope that its record shall not be for gotten when taps shall have been sounded over the resting place of the last survivor, but that the youth of the land who may perchance read its history may emulate its deeds by similar patriotic service should their country call them to do battle for its preservation or in defense of its ﬂag. The author extends his thanks to all those who have aided him with their advice or labor. Especially is he under obligation to the editors of the Miners' Journal, who sokindly placed the files of their paper at his disposal; to Ser geant P. H. Monaghan, of Company F, and Robert A. Reid, of Company G, for original articles descriptive of some special operation observed by them; to Color Sergeant, Samuel Bed dall, of Company E, Sergeant Daniel Donne, of Company G, and Captain F. D. Koch, of Company I; and especially to Sergeant William]. Wells, of Company F, for several origi nal articles and for his valuable services in preparing and editing the work. Joseph gould, Late Quartermaster Sergeant, 48th Regiment, P. V. V. I. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
