Keep Up Good Coverage: The Correspondence of Cpl. Lewis Q. Smith of Sandwich, New Hampshire, Fourteenth Regiment, New Hampshire Volunteers 1862-1865 collects the correspondence and diaries of an ordinary man who, along with half his small New Hampshire town, volunteered to fight in the American Civil War. Author Alan Fraser Houston offers far more than just an assembly of transcribed writings; his narration places each letter or entry in explicitly detailed context of both historical events and personal happenings in Smith's life. Endnotes, an extensive bibliography, and an index round out this intimate portrait of the Civil War and its repercussions from a ground soldier's eyes. An invaluable contribution to Civil War reference shelves.
