Excerpt from The Twentieth Regiment of Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, 1861-1865

Some time after the close of the war Mr. John C. Ropes, widely known as a lawyer, and the world over as one of the most critical and gifted of writers upon military subjects, was chosen as our historian, and the position was accepted by him. The pressure of business and the completion of other literary works in which he was interested so consumed his time that he was not able to perform a task which would have been for him a work of love.

Mr. Ropes was' an intimate friend of many officers of the regiment, and he followed its career with an interest that never ceased. His brother, Lieutenant Henry Ropes, one of its most promising young Officers, was killed at Gettysburg. Subsequently Captain Edward B. Robins, who joined the regiment in thé fall of 1864, was chosen his successor.

The circumstances under which the present volume has been prepared are set forth in the following letter from Colonel George A. Bruce, who served in Vir ginia until the close of the war.
