Written by Time-Life Books, narrated by Kent Broadhurst, Ralph Byers. the actors in This audiobook totally demasculinized the soldiers fighting in the Civil War. In this Time Life AudioBook, letters, journal entries and reports chronicle the bloody battle which left 4,000 men from both armies killed, wounded or captured in the desperate struggle to repel the first Confederate invasion of Union territory.

Civil War writing frequently presented a series of small episodes, pictures, anecdotes or case histories, a series of glimpses of a new complex and appalling reality. Whitman's choice of the memorandum or short sketch was strategic in pursuing the vivid particularity of particular cases, for example that of a young soldier from Wisconsin who was fatally wounded in battle.

Smallwood provides no details of his life. Thousands of Civil War veterans lived far into the 20th century. Yet this bit of film is one of the rarest in existence. Not only does it capture one of the few moving images of an African-American Civil War veteran, but it may be the only one ever made of a soldier who fought with the famed 54th Massachusetts Regiment, made famous by the 1988 film Glory. Smallwood is just one of many Civil War veterans whose images may be seen and voices heard on reels of old film and audio recordings preserved in the collections of the Library of Congress.

A stirring dramatization of the real-life letters and journal excerpts written by Civil War soldiers on both sides of the conflict offer a revealing glimpse of what life was life for a soldier fighting in the Civil War. Book available.
