Welcome the Hour of Conflict: William Cowan McClellan and the 9th Alabama
By edited by John C. Carter
Some collections of Civil War letters are either too brief or have too many writers to get a significant sense of life on the march. These letters represent the full four years of camp, march, and battle with much of the time spent in Virginia. Appendices include a list of letters, the regiment’s casualties/enlistment totals, officers and infantry assignments, Private McClellan’s military record, the regimental roster, notes, and an index.
