about

The missives of Civil War soldiers have been eagerly read by the general public and the serious scholar for over 130 years. These letters by Capt. Samuel Wheelock Fiske, a minister who served from Antietam to the Wilderness with the Army of the Potomac's 14th Connecticut volunteers, will bepopular with both groups. A prewar correspondent and humorist for the Springfield Republican, he continued writing during the conflict under the pseudonym Dunn Browne, informing and entertaining readers with his experiences and opinions on a wide range of political, military, religious, and socialtopics. The letters were originally compiled for an 1866 edition of the same name. The annotations by respected historian Sears (e.g., Chancellorsville, LJ 1/97) add to the value of the letters and make this edition more useful as well as accessible.
Stephen Sears is the author of many acclaimed Civil War histories. A former editor at American Heritage, he lives in Connecticut.
