Summary
Footprints of a Regiment chronicles W.H. Andrews' four years in the War Between the States from the Siege of Yorktown to the war's last battle at Bentonville, North Carolina. Based on his war journals and written in the 1890s, Andrews' moving memoir offers unusual access to the war -- the perspective of a foot soldier reflecting some thirty years later. Andrews gives vivid and dramatic descriptions of his company's twenty-plus battles, including their violence and tragedy. No less fascinating are the descriptions of his everyday experiences through the southern battleground states -- long, hard marches, foraging as a result of scant rations and pay, soldiers deserting to relieve starving families, silly antics to ease restlessness or exhaustion. - Jacket flap
