War journal, November 22, 1862-April 25, 1864 -- War letters, August 4, 1861-May 18, 1864.
Higginson served as Colonel of the 1st South Carolina Volunteers which was a regiment of freedmen in the Union Army.
"In 1870, Thomas Wentworth Higginson - the colonel of the first black regiment in the Civil War - published his account of Civil War life in Army Life in a Black Regiment. Still in print today, and based in part on Higginson's extensive war diary, the book has become a classic of Civil War literature. Now, for the first time, Higginson's journal of his war experiences is available in its entirety. Accompanied by a selection of his letters, this diary is politically and ethically stirring, vividly literary, and simultaneously evocative and descriptive. It will be recognized as one of the most important chronicles of the Civil War as well as a gripping account of one of the most radical racial experiments in American history." -- book jacket.
