Farmers and farmers' sons left their mountain homesteads to enlist with the regiment at Asheville in July and August 1861 and to defend their homeland from a Yankee invasion. The book chronicles the unit's defensive activities in the Carolina coastal regions and the battlefield actions at Seven Days, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Plymouth, Richmond and Petersburg. In addition, casualty and desertion statistics are included, along with a complete regimental roster and 118 photos, illustrations, and maps.

"A well-written, beautifully illustrated history of one of the lesser-known North Carolina units." --Civil War News
"This volume should be deemed the consummate source of information regarding the 25th NC Regiment." --Willie Parker Peace History Book Award
"In my personal opinion, Jones is now the world's leading expert on the 25th North Carolina Infantry Regiment...extremely well written and researched. As regimental histories go, and I've read many of them, this is as good as it gets." --Terrell Garren, renowned western North Carolina Civil War historian and the author of The Secret of War and Mountain Myth
