Synopsis: With a New Appendix of Excepts from His 1865 Diary.
Edited by Thomas D. Cockrell and Michael B. Ballard.
Born the eighth child in a wealthy Mississippi plantation family in 1843, David Eldred Holt joined Company K of the 16th Mississippi Regiment in 1861 and served in the Virginia theater throughout the Civil War. Late in his life, at a time when many former soldiers, both Union and Confederate, were reliving their memories of that event, Holt penned this memoir, recounting the idyllic life of an affluent southern boy before the war and the exhilarating, sometimes humorous, often terrifying experiences of a common soldier in camp and battle. This new paperback edition has been expanded to include Holt's never-before-published diary entries from the last year of the Civil War.
About the Author: Thomas D. Cockrell is head of the department of history at Blue Mountain College in Mississippi. Michael B.
