In 1863 the news of Northern victories at Gettysburg and Vicksbury made the outcome of the Civil War clear to young Wiley Britton, who was fighting for the Union with the Sixth Kansas Cavalry. But there was still hell to pay before anyone could go home. Nowhere else was the war so brutal as on the borders of Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, and the Indian territory, where bushwhackers and guerrilas dogged the heels of men going into battle. Always just ahead was the artillery fire of the Confederates. Trying to do his job and stay alive, private Britton wrote about engagements at Pea Ridge, Prairie Grove, Cane Hill, and elsewhere. Memoirs of the Rebellion on the Border, supplies a personal dimension unavailable to later historians, describing at firsthand the look of the countryside, the plight of its citizens, and, most poignantly, the faces and voices of comrades marching into history.

Good, though a close personal view by the author. Excuses excess (like other authors bios) as being not as bad as others say, or pretending they had to do it in response to the other side.

Good information but format makes it hard to read with ease.

Wiley Britton's memoirs offer the reader an interesting glimpse into the life of a union solider during the Civil War. Unlike the bulk of written material about the war, this centers on the lesser known western operations along the borders of Missouri, Kansas, and Arkansas.
What makes Britton's book most entertaining and informative is that he wrote about life as it happened. While his book was edited and published after the war, it is based on daily diaries he kept. As an enlisted solider, Britton's memoirs let the reader experience what the average soldier did on a day by day basis. His observations about people, life, and the events and circumstances around him will leave you feeling you know him, and his progressive thoughts for his day leave you feeling he is your contemporary. In fact, at times you may not believe these words were written over one hundred years ago- you will be startled to realize that while time separates you, the basic thoughts and motivations of people haven't really changed all that much over the centuries. We all still want the same things from life and we still wonder about the same questions.
Memoirs of the Rebellion on the Border is a good read, and highly recommended for those interested in the lesser known campaigns of the war.
