“The author… has done extensive research and has richly illustrated this volume which is also the story of a regiment whose march through Baltimore to save Washington City inspired a nation in the early days of the conflict. All in all, a very easy to read, entertaining volume about one group of men who answered the first call to preserve the Union. Surgeon of the “Old Sixth” is recommended to our membership.”
