Sam R. Watkins Ò 6 characters Co Aytch A Confederate Memoir of the Civil War Free read ☆ 6 A classic Civil War memoir Co Aytch is the work of a natural storyteller who balances the horror of war with an irrepressible sense of humor and a sharp eye for the lighter side of battle It is a testament to one man’s enduring humanity courage and wisdom in the midst of death and destructionEarly in May 1861. My G G Grandfather was Sam Watkins sergeant in the 1st Vol Infantry Co H until he was wounded through the knee and subseuentially captured by the Federal troops the battle of Perryville To hear the vivid accounts given in this book by a man directly under the command of my blood relative is exhilarating and very humbling I was even impressed when I started reading the book and found that he was a decent writer My opinion is grossly biased because of my direct connection to the writer but if you want vivid details from a common solider on the course of events of everyday life and even some uncommon insight into some of the most significant battles in American history then I strongly suggest you give this book a chanceDeo Vindice

Sam R. Watkins Ò 6 characters Co Aytch A Confederate Memoir of the Civil War Free read ☆ 6 G ‘rebels’ clustering around my knees and bumping about my elbows” he wrote this remarkable account a memoir of a humble soldier fighting in the American Civil War replete with tales of the common foot soldiers commanders Yankee enemies victories defeats and the South’s ultimate surrender on April 26 186. What an amazing man this was What I thought would basically be a war journal akin to All for the Union or Red Badge of Courage was so much Sam Watkins was an extraordinarily intelligent well spoken nuanced man He balances a tone of whimsical despair with fierce patriotism He speaks of his soldierly duty without lecturing on the divisive issues of the day The Civil War is often called a rich man s war but a poor man s fight To exemplify this read The Cause of the South followed by this You will be disgusted with the lofty rationalizations of slavery and states rights by the former written by aristocrats from their high castle Then when you read from humble Sam the life of the ordinary private soldier you will come to respect the poor men fighting only to defend their homes I think part of what makes this a great read is that Sam wrote it twenty years after the war as a middle aged family man Doubtless the intervening years matured him compared to how he would have written a journal as a 21 year old soldier in the moment
