Summary
In May 1861, the prominent young Virginian Thomas Henry Carter raised an artillery battery and joined the Confederate army during the American Civil War. Over the next four years he rose steadily in rank from captain to colonel, placing him among the senior artillerists in Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. During the war, Carter wrote more than 100 revealing letters to his wife Susan about his service. This book presents Carter's letters, one of the best first-hand accounts of Lee's army and Confederate life in Virginia
