New Brunswick, 1961, Rutgers, US First edition in DJ, Fine/Fine- ( dj price clipped and several small wear spots to dj), 6x9, xxxiii, 340 pages. maps, notes, roster. ----------------------------------------------In the anxious days that followed the firing on Fort Sumter, New Jersey was caught in the wave of patriotic ardor that swept the North. By the first of September, 1861, a private regiment known as Halsted's Horse had left its headquarters in Trenton and was on its way to Washington. A few months later, by order of the War Department, Halsted's Horse became the First New Jersey Cavalry. "The North did not win the war by accident," writes Earl Schenck Miers. This Northern regiment "rode doggedly to its campaigns from one year to the next; and when finally Lee surrendered at Appomattox, the First New Jersey Cavalry was there at full strength and still brimming with fight." The record of the First New Jersey Cavalry, written by Henry R. Pyne, the regiment's self-appointed chronicler and its chaplain during most of the war, is one of the most readable and exciting of Civil War regimental histories. Chaplain Pyne had a keen eye for detail, a vivid memory, and a gift for language and quiet humor. His was a labor of love, and his pride in his regiment shines through every page. Along with his concern for routine matters of battle and troop movement was a deep concern for the officers and men who served with him, and he writes of them vigorously and acutely. (Of special interest to librarians and genealogists is the fact that Mr. Miers, the editor of this edition, has traced the subsequent record of many of the men.)Mr. Miers has supplied a substantial historical introduction and numerous annotations of the text. He has thoroughly and painstakingly revised the appendix which contains the list of members of the First New Jersey Cavalry, for there were inaccuracies in the original edition when it appeared in 1871. He has also worked closely with Leonard Vosburgh to prepare the battle maps pinpointing the engagements of "the first regiment of volunteer cavalry that entered the field and was the last to leave it, and whose history from the time it was fairly organized and equipped was one of continuous service and brilliant achievements.".
