"This narrative has been regarded by collectors as highly for its scarcity as for its content. It is well worth reading for its unvarnished description of soldier life and is of some special interest as a narrative by a Jewish immigrant who enlisted in a country Georgia regiment. Hermann served in the Cheat Mountain campaign in western Virginia, at Fort McAllister near Savannah, in Mississippi, and in Hood's Tennessee campaign" - IN TALL COTTON. HOWES H436. IN TALL COTTON 89.
