Beneath the Starry Flag: New Jersey's Civil War Experience
Rutgers University Press, 2001 - 252 pages

Their motives, emotions, and deeds are chronicled in this collection of stories, some which have been out of print for many years, others that have not been heard since they were first written more than a century ago.
