Billy Yank tells the story of the Union soldiers as few have been able to capture. It covers more than just what the soldier wore, ate, used, etc. From his reasons for fighting, opinions of Lincoln, emancipation (pro AND con) officers, the Southern people, the topics are well covered.

Reenactors of the conflict would benefit from this book.5/5(17). Bought Billy Yank a few years later in paperback. Both worn out and yellowed from re-reading & moving around. Happy to have a hardback ed. for my mil. hist. book shelf. Read more. Helpful. Comment Report abuse.
