This work is taken from a massive multi volume hand written and illustrated daily account set down by Major John Mead Gould of the 1st, 10th & 29th Maine Volunteer Infantry. Carefully transcribed by historian Wm. Jordan from the originals in our personal collection with extensive footnotes, chapter introductions and index by nationally noted Civil War scholar Richard A. Sauers, this quality 8 ½ X 11 inch, 574 page hard bound book is extensively illustrated with Major. Gould’s period drawings and vintage photographs In his Civil War News review Ethan Rafuse states in part: Researchers looking for a common soldier’s perspective on life in camp, Banks retreat from Winchester, the battle of Cedar Mountain, Maryland and Red River Campaigns and Sheridan’s 1864 operations in the Shenandoah Valley will be hard pressed to find primary sources, published or unpublished that match the value of this observant (and quotable) young staff officer’s writings. In our forty (plus) years of avid interest and almost daily contact with Civil War material, we have considered acquisition of Major Gould’s journals from his descendant, the sharing of the colorful firsthand account and finally placement of the originals in the Maine Historical Society collection, a highlight of our years in the field. An enjoyable read (those familiar with the Time / Life series VOICES OF THE CIVIL WAR will recognize Mjr. Gould as a primary source). An outstanding reference with limited availability.
INDEPENDENT REVIEWS:
Of particular interest to collectors are Gould’s observations about Civil War arms and accoutrements. His description of his growing collection of Confederate buttons and other ‘Secesh’—souvenirs he ‘liberated’ with impunity—is fascinating. This is a well-edited, handsomely presented work... North South Trader’s Civil War.
[the Gould piece] will instantly become one of the most commonly cited of all primary sources relating to the topics it covers. It is a fabulous document. Its’ immediate, unvarnished, and full of detail and observation rarely found in a document of this sort. John Hennessy.
...an outstanding addition to Civil War literature --- clear and appropriate maps and a useful index....a book that deserves a place in every research library Ethan Rafuse, Civil War News.
