We Were The Ninth is a translation, carefully edited and thoroughly annotated, of an important Civil War regiment. The Ninth Ohio―composed of Ohio Germans mostly from Cincinnati―saw action at Rich Mountain and Carnifex Ferry in West Virginia, Shiloh, Corinth, Perryville, Hoover’s Gap, Nashville, Chattanooga, and Chickamauga.
The Ninth began the War amid misgivings (Would a German-speaking regiment in the Union Army cause chaos?) and ended its active service among the honored units. It continued as an active German-speaking veterans’ organization. Constantin Grebner published this significant history, in German, in 1897 and noted that it “is intended as neither a history of the war nor a definitive account of battles. Rather, it is restricted to a straightforward, veracious report of what happened to The Ninth, and to recounting as accurately as possible The Ninth’s experiences as a wartime regiment.” Frederic Trautmann’s English translation is faithful to Grebner’s original text, preserving its integrity while maintaining its energy, precision, and grace.
About the Author: Frederic Trautmann is professor emeritus of rhetoric and communication at Temple University. He has written more than fifty articles, reviews, and short translations for professional and historical journals and is the author, editor, or translator of numerous books.

Book Description Kent State University Press, Kent, Ohio, 1987. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Very nice, clean book -- no bumps and no names or writing. Jacket shows no tears or chips and is most handsome in brand new mylar cover. Illustrated. 322 pages. Indexed.The Ninth Ohio was a regiment composed primarily of Ohio Germans, most of whom came from Cincinnati. They fought in West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia and saw action at Rich Mountain, Carnifix Ferry, Shiloh, Corinth, Perryville, Hoover's Gap, Nashville, Chattanooga and Chickamauga.What makes this regiment so interesting is the fact that it was German speaking, a point of controversy at the time due to the probability, or lack thereof, of its effectiveness. But the Ninth prevailed and was not even the only German speaking regiment of the war, but definitely the only one to write its history in its native tongue. For a nearly a century this history was unavailable to an English speaking audience until it was translated by Frederic Trautman. Book contains a complete roster. Seller Inventory # 19617TB
