Published in 1967, the letters in this volume reveal the
experiences of four Georgia soldiers who served in Company H of the
Eleventh Regiment, Georgia Volunteers, under Stonewall Jackson.
Most of the letters were written by James Thomas Thompson, a young
farmer from Walton County. During the two years he served, Thompson
seems to have never lost his enthusiasm for the soldier's life. His
letters are full of admiration for his offi cers, comments about
his duties, requests for clothing, accounts of marching, advice to
his father about managing the plantation, and indications of his
religious faith. Other letters were written by Kittrell Warren,
Captain Matthew Talbot Nunnally, and William Laseter. From their
correspondence emerges a vivid description of a soldier's daily
life in the Civil War. Austin's historical narrative provides the
reader with a context for the events discussed.
