From Our Editors

He was there, fighting his way through so many of the most important battles of the Civil War, from the Battle of Ball’s Bluff to Antietam. Oliver Wendell Holmes was just one man, but he has proven to be an invaluable Civil War resource for historians. He has provided both detailed letters and a comprehensive diary, not to the mention the numerous sketches and maps he drew by his own hand. Touched With Fire is a collection of his letters and the records of his campaigns as provided in his diary. This book is powerful record of the ideals that led young men to war in 1861 and a vivid impression of what it meant to fight in one of the bloodiest wars in history.
