Lost and forgotten in a travel trunk for almost 60 years, the diaries were discovered in the 1950s but languished in silence and obscurity until the recent discovery of the identity of their author, Corporal Timothy J. Regan of Boston's Irish regiment, the 9th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment, in 1998.
Now after 141 years, these diaries originally compiled in two manuscripts, are being published for the first time unedited and in their entirety. These diaries are well-written, lengthy, upbeat and patriotic. They are a real gem that will appeal to both the professional historian, because of the many documented details and to the average person, because it reads like a true adventure story. Mr. Regan documents over 100 Civil War poems, short stories, the battle at Gettysburg, General Orders, an execution, Pres. Lincoln's assassination and many other interesting statistics and events from the war and Boston area.
Relive the life of a Union soldier in the American Civil War from Corporal Timothy J. Regan's 3 year enlistment on June 11, 1861, through the war and beyond to March 10, 1876.
Newly discovered, the diaries of Corporal Timothy J. Regan, a true Irish American Hero, are a must-have for any Civil War History collection. They will be treasured for generations to come!
