Summary
Few Union soldiers had the vantage point of William Horton Kimball, a member of the First Michigan Engineers and Mechanics. As a military engineer, Kimball spent most of his time behind the major lines of conflict and often worked among civilians who sympathized with the enemy. In Among the Enemy: A Michigan Soldier's Civil War Journal, author Mark Hoffman presents Kimball's journal as a unique window into wartime experience, including detailed accounts of expeditions into a hostile countryside, the bitter war against guerillas, and the civilians caught in the middle of a traditional war waged with nontraditional means.--Publisher's description.
