It is also the story of a 20-year-old private in the military whose engaging writing belies his age. He tells of the battles he fought; the games he played; of his friends, fellow soldiers, and officers; and of the regiment's activities in Missouri and Arkansas, at Vicksburg, in Louisiana, and on the Texas Gulf Coast. It is not a complete story of the 33rd Illinois Infantry Regiment, known as the 'Normal Regiment', nor is it a complete roster of regiment members, of those killed, or wounded.
