>>303 pages, $10.00.

Gang this is a great book, chock full of all the little details we like to read about the experiences, large and small, of the soldiers in the ranks. Anyone who has an interest in the western federal soldier, Illinois troops, POW camps or the war in general will enjoy this one. The Red River Expedition (apparently expedition was a more popular period term than campaign, at least for this author) has some good detail on the movements, life, attitudes, civilian vs military, etc.
