Another wishlist entry

Flipping by a pledge driven re-airing of Ken Burns' The Civil War, I was reminded of all the diary readings from Elisha Hunt Rhodes. He was a Union soldier, and I seem to remember him surviving all the way from the earliest engagements to the end of the war. I always wanted to read his story.

His letters and diaries were collected in All for the Union, which is still available in paperback and has a Kindle edition, too.

Here is the short Wikipedia page about him. Elisha Hunt Rhodes.

Bonus; he's buried at Swan Point cemetery - the same cemetery where H. P. Lovecraft is buried.

  1. I've been watching some of the PBS series on the Civil War. I'm starting to get interested in doing more reading about it.
