The Nineteenth Massachusetts Regiment had a long and glorious history during the American Civil War, as the author states in his introduction- "For thirty-four years I have waited patiently for someone to write a history of the 19th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers, but fearing that it may never be accomplished, I have concluded to send out this story. I do not dignify it by calling it a history. It is simply a soldier's story, told by one of the "boys." Most of it is written from memory. The account of prison life is taken from an imperfect diary, kept by the writer while a prisoner of war. " Captain Adams recounts the history of his illustrious regiment through the battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville to perhaps their finest hour at Gettysburg, where five men of the 19th won the Congressional Medal of Honour. His own troubles in the war became worse upon his capture by Confederate soldiers after the battle of Cold Harbor, and, despite escaping, was recaptured. As he says, his is a soldier's story. A very engaging one at that.
