Here is the riveting dual biography of two little-known but extraordinary men in Civil War history --- George E. Stephens and James Henry Gooding. These Union soldiers not only served in the Massachusetts 54th Infantry, the well-known black regiment, but were also war correspondents who published eyewitness reports of the battlefields. Their dispatches told the truth of their lives at camp, their intense training and the dangers and tragedies on the battlefield. This fresh perspective on the Civil War includes an author’s note, timeline, bibliography, index and source notes.
