John Armstrong Bross is forgotten today, while Robert Gould Shaw, the commander portrayed by Matthew Broderick in the film, "Glory," gained fame immediately upon his death that has endured. Both events are remarkably similar -- two young Union colonels who lead African-American troops and who died very nearly one year apart.

This long-forgotten volume was published for Bross' friends and family in Chicago. But it has much wider appeal as the story of a man who was deeply committed to doing what he felt was his duty during the Civil War. He was proud of his troops and they loved him because he treated them like men.

He fell in battle with them at the crater in the siege of Petersburg on July 30, 1864.

Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever.

For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
