Jack C. Mason, "Until Antietam: The Life and Letters of Major General Israel B. Richardson, U.S. Army"
English | ISBN 10: 0809329476 | 2009 | PDF | 256 pages | 4.4 MB
While researching this book, Jack C. Mason made the kind of discovery that historians dream of. He found more than one-hundred unpublished and unknown letters from Union general Israel B. Richardson to his family, written from his time as a West Point cadet until the day before his fatal wounding at the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day in American history. Using these freshly uncovered primary sources as well as extensive research in secondary materials, Mason has written the first-ever biography of Israel Bush Richardson.
