Coffin's exciting saga, written with the immediacy of a combat correspondent, dramatizes why and how a small, poor, remote Northern state responded so quickly and enthusiastically to President Lincoln's first call to arms in 1861.

From the defense of Washington and the siege of Richmond, from Big Bethel to Cedar Creek, we observe the bravery and exploits of Vermont's farm-bred troops who turned the tide in pivotal battles to preserve the Union. More than 10 percent of Vermont's entire population-34,238 Green Mountain men and boys-served in the war, sustaining one of the largest per capita losses incurred by a Northern state.

About the Author:

Howard Coffin, former press secretary to U.S. senator Jim Jeffords, is the author of The Battered Stars, Full Duty, Guns Over the Champlain Valley, and Nine Months to Gettysburg. He lives in Montpelier, Vermont.

From Booklist:

This presentation of Vermont's participation in the Civil War is an updated example of the state-oriented Civil War volumes that flourished a century ago. That participation was extensive, involving more than 34,000 Vermonters, 5,000 of whom did not return. A gifted amateur historian, Coffin provides ample material on the Vermont background of the men who went to war, and vivid, readable accounts of their presence in virtually every major battle in the eastern theater. He also covers Vermonters who became POWs and those at home who had the novel experience of being raided by Confederate guerrillas operating across the Canadian border. A sound and valuable addition to Civil War and regional history collections. Roland Green
