This “war paper” was first read before the Rhode Island Soldiers and Sailors Society, in Providence, October 19, 1886. Subsequently it was read at the annual winter reunion of the Eleventh Rhode Island Regiment (January 27, 1887), two companies of which regiment (B and F) were recruited in Pawtucket, the former commanded by Captain Charles W. Thrasher and Lieutenant Thomas Moies, and the latter by Captain Edward Taft. It has since been read several times before other associations and societies. The paper was not intended for publication, nor was it originally broken into chapters, and in allowing it to be published, the author permits the urgent requests of numerous friends to outweigh his own judgment. It does not assume to be a connected or detailed history of the regiment; nor is it the history of any one company of the regiment; nor is it the diary of an officer of the regiment, but simply what its title indicates, “A RAW RECRUIT’S WAR EXPERIENCES.” More is said about Company B than of any other company in the Eleventh Regiment for the reason that the aforesaid “raw recruit’s war experiences” were especially identified with that company. Being personal recollections, and to a large extent the recital of personal incidents connected with the nine months’ campaign of the regiment in Virginia, must be my apology for the frequent use of the personal pronoun I.
