“Burnside’s Boys: The Union’s Ninth Corps and the Civil War in the East,” by Darin Wipperman

Author Darin Wipperman vividly reconstructs life — and death — in the Union Army’s IX Corps during the Civil War. These tough troops fought in an astounding number of eastern theater campaigns and battles, including the 1862 coastal expeditions in the Carolinas, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, the Wilderness and Spotsylvania, and their final action at the Siege of Petersburg at the war’s end. And all the while they were led by their intriguing general, Ambrose Burnside.


Darin Wipperman is the author of “First for The Union: Life and Death in a Civil War Army Corps from Antietam to Gettysburg.” He served for 17 years as an employee of the U.S. Government, then was a reporter and editor for weekly newspapers in northern New Hampshire prior to retirement.
