Summary
"The Civil War, however, the major event of Willcox's life, is the focus of this book. Whether Willcox was on the field at Bull Run, within the confines of Libby Prison, at dinner with President Lincoln, or desperately defending Fort Stedman against Lee's effort to break the siege at Petersburg, through his recollections we are able to view history as it was being made through the eyes of one who lived it."--BOOK JACKET
