Miller has produced an exhaustive history on one Union regiment. This regimental history earned its nickname from having most of its officers being Harvard educated and it gained a reputation for taking on and triumphing over difficult circumstances. Prominent engagements for the regiment include attacking Marye's Heights at Fredricksburg, facing Picket's Charge at Gettysburg, and fighting at the Orange and Plank Roads intersection in the Wilderness.
