A Surgeon's Civil War:  The Letters & Diary of Daniel M. Holt, M.D.
Eds: James M. Greiner, Janet L. Coryell, James R. Smither

Experience the Civil War through the eyes of a military surgeon. In his letters and diary entries, written during several of the major eastern campaigns, Holt vividly describes medical field practices, the chaos and hardships faced by the Army of the Potomac, and the gradual reform of the Army Medical Department, which initially was unprepared for the length and carnage of the war. Expert editorial commentary sets the scenes for Holt's descriptions and fills in historical and factual details.
