Our War: Days and Events in the Fight for the Union
To research "Our War," author and journalist Mike Pride read letters, diaries, memoirs, and contemporary news accounts by and about New Hampshire people. His search for the human stories of the Civil War took him from the rich archives of the New Hampshire Historical Society to the family collections of descendants of New Hampshire veterans all across the state and nation. In the pages of Pride’s book, the voices of people from New Hampshire—soldiers, wives, mothers, doctors, nurses, abolitionists, politicians—tell 50 revealing personal stories. Taken together, their experiences bring to life the war’s tragic course and bittersweet triumph.
