The history of the Fighting Fifth comes alive in this new book by Mike Pride and Mark Travis. Join the regiment in the early days of its organization in Concord and across New Hampshire. Follow Colonel Cross and his Brave Boys at Antietam, Fredericksburg, and the final days at Gettysburg. A must read for all Civil War enthusiasts!!! This book returns to New Hampshire the honor for which these men paid so costly a price!

Meet the men. Read about their stories. See how the States honor them. All in a new collection of books by author Bruce D. Heald, Ph.D. The Civil War History Series brings to us a 128 page history of New Hampshire and the War. This is a must read for the beginers and experienced Civil War enthusiats! New Hampshire In The Civil War by Bruce D. Heald, Ph.D. is now available at most bookstores.

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.

In my recent move to my first house, I have encountered three new books for the New Hampshire Civil War enthusiast:
Constructing Munitions of War The Portsmouth Navy Yard Confronts the Confederacy, 1861-1865 by Richard E Winslow III This book was publisehed by the Portsmouth Marine Society in 1995.
Letters From A Sharpshooter The Civil War letters of Priv William B Greene, Co G 2nd US Sharpshooters (Berdan's) Army of the Potomac 1861-1865 Transcribed by William H Hastings and published by Historic Publications 1993
Mustered! Foot Soldiers of the 12th by JP Fahey. Published by the Hampshire House in 2001

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!
