A local history of the Civil War, with an author reading/signing!

On the morning of April 15, 1861, friends roused Edward E. Sturtevant, the night watchman in Concord, New Hampshire, so that he could become the first man in the state to volunteer to fight for the Union. Thousands of men followed him into uniform during the next four years as the Civil War touched every heart and home.
In Our War, Mike Pride uses letters, diaries, and contemporary newspaper accounts to shape fifty stories of death, love, bravery, and survival. One story leads to another, and the war unfolds as New Hampshire men and women lived it from the heady days of 1861 to the costly victory of 1865.

MIKE PRIDE is an historian and journalist. He is editor emeritus of the Concord Monitor, where he ran the newsroom for thirty years. For nine of those years, Pride served on the Pulitzer Prize board. He has co-authored several books, including My Brave Boys, a history of Colonel Edward E. Cross and the Fifth New Hampshire Volunteers. Pride graduated from the University of South Florida and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. He lives in Concord with his wife Monique.
