Hard to put into words how I felt reading this book. It was so well written, and told us so much more about the 19th Indiana regiment than we had ever read or heard before. I have an epalet from Col. Samuel Williams uniform -- the one he was buried in. Would like to get in touch with the author if at all possible!
The book outlays every detail of the Indiana 19th's movement during the Gettysburg campaign all of the way down the graphic depictions of death scenes. It was difficult to gain an overview of the regiments role within the larger conflict (which I anticipated) due to lengthy explanations of specific individuals movements. The details were thouroughly researched and presented in a very logical manner, but the importance the 19th played in this pivotal battle was underscored by long-winded explanations of each death that occurred during the three year period being studied. Approximately 1/3 of the books contents were detailed footnotes and this made the reading somewhat difficult.
this is my uncle and its great to see that he can be seen by many other people here on the internet. Thanks jamie
