Books: Indiana Civil War

The Martin Guards left this southern Indiana county in 1861 and fought through the major battles of the East: Antietam, Fredericksburg. Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor.

The book is the only Civil War company history available in Indiana. It contains background area and family histories and letters; C Company monthly reports (first time published); and history of the group which went to Mt. Pleasant schoolhouse and then enlisted—and fought together.

Illustrations by Richard Day of Vincennes. Many photos.
