Book Description:
In the heady days of the rush to arms in 1861, comparatively few Southern men volunteered for service in the artillery: most preferred the easily accessible glory of the infantry or cavalry. Yet those that did quickly earned the respect of their fellow soldiers, and a reputation for being able to 'pull through deeper mud, ford deeper springs, shoot faster, swear louder ... than any other class of men in the service'. Given that field artillery was invariably deployed in front of the troops that it was supporting, the artillerymen were exposed to a high level of enemy fire, and losses were significant. This title guides the reader through the life and experiences of the Confederate cannoneer where he came from; how he trained and lived; how he dressed, ate and was equipped; and how he fought.
