Sinopsis:

Only a handful of historians have explored the unique nature of the Galvanized Yankees—Confederate prisoners of war permitted to enlist in the Union army—and the role they played in the West during the Civil War. Rarer still are detailed studies of individual regiments. Michèle Tucker Butts sheds welcome light on the triumphs and travails of one such unit, the First United States Volunteers and their commander, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Dimon. Their story provides a telescopic view of issues that would sweep the nation for the remainder of the nineteenth century: the promise and anxiety inherent in post–Civil War nation building, the complexities involved in westward expansion, and the changing nature of mid-nineteenth century manhood. Butts seamlessly maintains a human face on events of national import, punctuating her thoroughly researched narrative with excerpts from Dimon’s letters home. This compelling account of the First United States Volunteers will appeal to both scholars and general readers interested in the Civil War as well as Western and military history.

Review:

"An important scholarly contribution to the historical profession. [It] should attract a significant reading audience among specialists and armchair historians alike." -- Michael Tate, University of Nebraska, Omaha

"Butt's excellent book should be of interest to historians of the Civil War as well as those interested in the history of the American West. It is a model case study, well written and well researched, that challenges past views about these `galvanized' soldiers and their leadership." -- Civil War History

"... [A] book that belongs on the shelves of Civil War and western historians alike." -- H-CivWar, a division of H-Net Reviews
