On August 7, 1862, George Alfred Hitchcock (born in Massachusetts in 1844) was mustered into Company A, 21st Massachusetts Infantry. From this date until January 1, 1865, he kept a meticulous daily diary. His first experience in battle was at Fox's Gap on South Mountain, and then an attack across Burnside's Bridge at Antietam. Then came the disastrous Union advance toward Marye's Heights at Fredericksburg; a journey by rail to Paris, Kentucky, via Pittsburgh, Columbus (drunken 21st Infantry soldiers in conflict with local security) and Cincinnati; the protection of the Mount Sterling, Kentucky, area from guerrillas; an expedition from Camp Nelson through the Cumberland Gap to eastern Tennessee; Burnside's Knoxville campaign; the arduous winter return march to Camp Nelson with Confederate prisoners; efforts to regain his health and a return to the 21st Regiment; and a compelling account of his capture at Cold Harbor and imprisonment at Andersonville and Millen, Georgia, and Florence, South Carolina; and finally, his release.

About the Author:

New Jersey high school principal Ronald G. Watson retired to Burlington, North Carolina. In 1992, President George H.W. Bush selected Watson as the 704th Daily Point of Light in his "Thousand Points of Light" recognition of outstanding community service.

Review:

"an exceptional, down-to-earth, insightful diary"--Civil War News; "most welcome...highly recommended"--Blue & Gray Magazine; "well organized and handsome volume. Scholars and other interested readers will appreciate a diary from an enlisted man who experienced so much of the Civil War and who wrote about it with such astuteness and eloquence"--Army History; "A rare and comprehensive look at one infantry soldier's experiences in the America Civil War.... This book would be of interest to a number of Civil War audiences. This includes the experiences of an infantry soldier; the movements and campaigns of the 21st Massachusetts Infantry; and prisoner of war conditions. In addition, persons studying war in any time period would find value in Hitchcock's entries."--Janie C. Morris, retired Research Librarian, Special Collection Library, Duke University.
