Chicago To Appomattox

"Every volunteer regiment that fought its way through the horrors of the Civil War deserves its own modern study, and Jason Baker's Chicago to Appomattox offers both a solid account of the 39th Illinois's wartime history from recruitment to discharge and a useful collection of reference material related to its officers and men." -- Civil War Books and Authors (cwba.blogspot.com)

When Chicago lawyer Thomas Osborn set out to form a Union regiment in the days following the attack on Fort Sumter, he could not have known it was the beginning of a 6000-mile journey that would end at Appomattox Courthouse four years later. With assistance from Governor Richard Yates, the 39th Illinois Infantry—“The Yates Phalanx”—enlisted young men from Chicago, its modern-day suburbs, and small towns of northern and central Illinois.
While most Illinois regiments fought in the west, the 39th marched through the Shenandoah Valley to fight Stonewall Jackson, to Charleston Harbor for the Second Battle of Fort Sumter, and to Richmond for the year-long siege at Petersburg. This book chronicles day-to-day life in the regiment, the myriad factors that determined its path, and the battles fought by the Chicagoans—including two Medal of Honor recipients—who fired some of the last shots before the Confederate surrender at Appomattox.

Book royalties are donated to the American Battlefield Trust--to preserve and protect hallowed ground--and to local historical organizations of the cities and towns that made up the 39th Illinois.

I always enjoy discovering a new author, and this one did not disappoint. This novel captures the reader from the first paragraph, and it was hard to put this one down. Traditional Western readers should love this novel with its good pacing, plenty of action, and a hint of romance. There is a nice hook for another book to follow, and I will certainly take the bait. This writer has a future in the genre.
-RON SCHWAB, Bestselling author of Old Dogs, The Accidental Sheriff, and other classic Western novels.
