Also new to the Civil War market is a book I have not read yet but received an outstanding article by the New Hampshire Sunday News on May 26. This book, entitled Letters From a Civil War Surgeon, contains about 160 letters written by William Child. Dr. Child was the surgeon to the famed 5th NH. From the weather outside to the harsh reality of the War around him, this book brings a new voice to the War and to the citizens of New Hampshire.

I know several visitors have asked where they can find copies of books for themselves. I have found a book company in Salem, MA that copies many of the regimental histories for most of the libraries that I have visited and worked with. The name of the business is Higginson Book Company and can be linked by clicking here. Please let them know I sent you!
