Spend the day putting down the Rebellion with George

One of my most favorite Civil War “journals” is How Private George W. Peck Put Down the Rebellion, Or The Funny Experiences Of A Raw Recruit.  I read it over a year ago, and I still remember how fast, funny, engaging, and quick-witted it was.

It is definitely near the top of my “MUST READ” Civil War books list.

I just learned this morning from the George W. Peck website that George was in the 4th Wisconsin Cavalry, granted it was Union Cavalry, but you know how I feel about the Cavalry and George just earned another point with me.

Also of interest is the series of stories called “Peck’s Bad Boy”.  You can read the books or watch the movies for free at the internet archive.
