The Iron Brigade suffered the greatest proportion of casualties in all the Union Army at Gettysburg. To compensate for the Iron Brigade’s casualties, hundreds of Easterners were folded into it after Gettysburg

The Iron Brigade suffered the greatest proportion of casualties in all the Union Army at Gettysburg. On July 1, the brigade and the Confederates pushed each other back and forth at Seminary Ridge. That afternoon, the dread beauty of battle seduced Dawes, as he watched from the height, with Battery B, the grand advance of the enemy. To compensate for the Iron Brigade’s casualties, hundreds of Easterners were folded into it after Gettysburg. This new blood forever destroyed the identity of the unique Western organization, said Alan T. Nolan in his classic history of the unit.

It is difficult finding books that cover single regiments with solid information that only pertains to the unit itself sometimes. Author Craig Dunn has put together a very comprehensive book that covers the birth of the 19th Indiana to final muster in 1865. I liked the fact that Dunn didn't dwell on only officers but brought the private soldier to life as short biographies and the details of their involvement were written about. Dunn covers early exhaustive marches, campaigns, camp life, politics and explains the many personalities within the 19th. Dunn backs his material up well with references and also many statistics are added that enhance this book tremendously. This book serves as a great resource tool in learning about the hard fighting 19th and I recommend it to many interested in learning about the tough regiment of the famous Iron Brigade.

It was bought because my great grandfather was mentioned in it.

As an ardent student of Indiana and Civil War history, I was extremely interested in this book. I knew this was the first book written exclusively on the Nineteenth Indiana, but recently there have been a slew of 19th Indiana books, so I was very curious about this first one. I guess what attracted me was the beautiful cover and wealth of original images from the author's collection. Upon finishing the book I came to this conclusion. This was one fine piece of written history. I visited the Indiana Archives, the Indiana Historical Society and the Indiana State Library to view some of the amazing letters, diaries and records that Mr. Dunn used in putting this history together. I could not believe the painstaking accuracy with which he footnoted each of his quoted comments and revealing passages. It is quite obvious to me that the author loves the Civil War and Indiana History. I also liked the fact that he is donating his net profits from the book to the restoration of Indiana's Civil War battleflags. Quite noble in this day of mercenary tendencies. I can't rate this historical work highly enough. Simply superb!

I duplicated Mr. Dunn's research when conducting my senior honors thesis at Ball State University a few years ago, and it made me view his book in a whole new light. Mr. Dunn lept to conclusions that I cannot agree with and he took entirely too much of William Roby Moore's autobigographies (available at the Indiana Historical Society library) at face value. Mr. Moore was writing his autobios. beginning in 1919. Between the war's end (for him, after Gettysburg in 1863) and 1919 he suffered from mental illness. Many of his statements in his autobiographies are contrary to statements he made in his war letters (which are also at the IHS). Mr. Dunn should have relied less on the autobiography and more on the letters. He wanted to help preserve battle flags, a noble intent to be sure, but his book is not well researched, perhaps due to haste to get it out.

Many Civil War regimental histories become bogged down in a morass of minutiae and detail. This book focuses on the men of the regiment and tells the history of this Iron Brigade regiment in their words with over 1,200 footnoted entries. The book contains a wealth of photographs of the men of the regiment so the reader can see the men whose words flesh out this history. This is a brilliant book by an up and coming Civil War historian.

This book was simply a pleasure to read. While it was well documented, the documentation did not grind the book to a halt. I would consider this more as an anecdotal history rather than a military history. The author puts a human face on a serious topic. I have now read all of the books in print on the Iron Brigade and the Nineteenth Indiana Volunteers and this one is the best.

What a great book on the Nineteenth Indiana Volunteers of the Iron Brigade. The book was maticulously researched and documented. The best part about the book was that the documentation did not detract from the enjoyable reading. The pictures and roster were very helpful. I have personally read over 200 Civil War regimental histories and this one was my favorite. I have read two other books on the Nineteenth Indiana and found them to be lacking in documentation and in ease of reading. This book is the best.
I've had this book for about 5 yrs. and just got around to reading it. Dunn's book is very readable and informative, he blends fact with a strong human element. I look forward to more of his work
