Historical narrative. Charlottesville, war-torn, one hundred forty years ago. The motives of those who wore gray. A Private, a common soldier. Yet eloquent and captivating prose of home and friends... More > and family, of defining sense of duty, and of mortal combat. Private Neese’s memoirs shine light on Charlottesville’s rich history. Snapshots of the buildings, the streets, the mountainsides, and the people who lived here, and who fought and died here. Neese felt no animosity for the enemy, no glee in bloodshed. A warrior poet, he experienced homesickness, melancholy, happiness, satisfaction, mournfulness, hunger, aggravation, camaraderie and fatigue. In these memoirs he forged a bridge across time to leave in today’s reader a new and appreciably different perspective of Charlottesville. —Michael Waitz, USAF. by George M. Neese, introduced by Henry D. Molumphy, former officer of the United Nations< Less
