A Union soldier's general history of The Maryland Campaign and the Battle of Antietam and personal account of his life as a soldier in and out of battle. "When we fought battles the physical and mental strain was terrific. We did more actual labor every day - carrying rifle equipment, ammunition food, water, clothing, blankets, etc., than those who remained at home did in a month, and all that for 43 cents a day - $13.00 a month - and on a diet the average tramp of today would spurn." Illustrations are from "Harper's Weekly" and the "Brady" series, and from photographs made by M. C. Huyette in September, 1914.
