Summary

Since its publication, Richard Moe's 'The Last Full Measure' has garnered a reputation as one of a handful of classic regimental histories of the Civil War and the definitive history of the First Minnesota Regiment. Moe's chronicle of the First Minnesota has received wide acclaim from reviewers and historians alike. As James MacGregor Burns notes in his foreword to the book, 'Like Tolstoy's 'War and Peace,' this work sticks close to the men in battle, and hence, like Tolstoy, the author keeps close to the human size of war.' Ken Burns, co-producer of the acclaimed PBS documentary 'The Civil War' notes that 'Richard Moe, in this wonderfully told regimental history, manages to rescue that which Civil War studies so often neglects: the people.'
