Excerpts

General Halbert Eleazer Paine, commanding officer of the Fourth Wisconsin Regiment of Volunteers, took part in most significant military actions in the lower Mississippi Valley during the Civil War. Nearly forty years after the conflict's end, Paine-a former school teacher and attorney who would become a three-term congressman-penned recollections of his wartime exploits, including his involvement in the Vicksburg campaign, the operations that resulted in the capture of New Orleans, the Battle of Baton Rouge, the Bayou Teche offensive, and the siege of Port Hudson. Now available for the first time, A Wisconsin Yankee in the Confederate Bayou offers Paine's excellent eyewitness account of the complexities of war. Introduced and annotated by noted historian Samuel C. Hyde, Jr.
