Just 16 years old at enlistment, Baltimore native George Wilson Booth cast his lot with the fledgling Confederacy, and headed south in time to participate in First Manassas. In later service with the CSA's 1st Maryland Infantry and 2nd Maryland Cavalry, as well as in staff roles, Booth earned the respect and notice of his superiors. This memoir, first composed in 1898, contains Booth's account of four years' service in such campaigns as the Shenandoah Valley, Seven Days, Second Manassas, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, and Richmond.
