John Quigley didn’t perform great heroic feats, but he did carry out his duties with honor even while he suffered to see his family and grew angry when he couldn’t obtain a furlough. He was very human. His diary and letters are a unique and personal view of regimental politics, camp life, battles, and the land in which he traveled. His papers create snapshots of historical events from one man’s perspective.

    I am not a civil war buff, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A first hand account of life as an officer during the civil war, complete with the niceties of correspondance of the times, made for and informative and charming read. The compilation of both dairy and letters home in time line fashion works well. Wyckoff's research and explanation of names and places truely helped to understand dairy entries and letters.
