The Civil War Memoirs of Pvt. Edgar Warfield, 17th Virginia Infantry. 1996 214p. Softbound. When he marched to war from his Alexandra, Virginia, home, Edgar Warfield was an 18-year-old drugstore clerk. When he returned four years later, his parole in hand, he was a Confederate Army veteran, never to forget the horrors, the hardships, the drama and the camaraderie. With fellow enlistees he early enjoyed drilling before ladies and hearing their sweet voices at twilight campfires. But as the war heated up, Private Warfield learned the hard way how to wield a pick and shovel; ford the Shenandoah; sleep on the hard ground, tentless, in torrential rainstorms and driving snowstorms; fasten the soles of his shoes to the uppers with pieces of bandage; and, starving, forage for crackers and meat in the haversacks of enemy dead and then eat as he fought. Through the short rations and long rolls (calls to battle) in the kaleidoscope of his personal experiences, he encountered his father, his brother and schooltime friends on the battlefield. Heading north towards home for his only furlough of the war, he, with his father, stealthily evaded enemy troops everywhere, and finally achieved a secret reunion with their family. He sadly learned of his brotherís death from a Union prisoner whose wound he was dressing. Warfield recognized the cap the Yank was holding as his brotherís. Forced marches, siege winters, First Manassas, Sharpsburg, peach orchard, county courthouses, Frazierís Farm where brother George lay buried, the steady stream of memories of this "private soldier" recreates the atmosphere of a war that seared the soul.
