Publisher's Summary

All for the Union is the astonishing and eloquent diary of Elisha Hunt Rhodes, the Union soldier featured in Ken Burns' highly acclaimed PBS television documentary The Civil War. Enlisting as a private in the 2nd Rhode Island Infantry, Rhodes fought in every major campaign waged by the Army of the Potomac, from Bull Run to Appomattox. Here, in his own powerfully moving words, Rhodes reveals why he was willing to die to preserve his beloved Union.

    "Captivating Narrative"

    All For the Union is a captivating eyewitness account of a young man who fought for the Union in the Civil War. One of the mostly striking part of the book is Rhodes's emphasizes on the camp meetings and Sunday Church services held in camp. Throughout the book Rhodes paints the horror of battle and diffidence of camp life as only a eyewitness can. The book is inspiring instead of depressing. Truly a must listen!

    "Good view into the life of Union soldier."

    Very informative, but not quite as entertaining as other accounts like Sam Watkins' Company Aytch.
