The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865 by Leander Stillwell Book Summary

The Story of a Common Soldier is a compelling coming of age tale that will appeal not only to Civil War buffs but to anyone who enjoys autobiographies. Written at the urging of his youngest son, when Stillwell was a mature man--a lawyer, judge, and member of the Kansas legislature, it combines graphic detail (provided by his war diary and letters written at the time to his family) with the insights of a thoughtful man looking back on those horrific times.

The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865 (Leander Stillwell) Book Reviews

Great bookA very interesting look at the Civil War through the eyes of a Union Soldier. Gives you a real look into the life of an ordinary soldier. The things you don't read in a history book. Fascinating prospective with things you would never think about in any other historical book. Highly recommend!!!!!!!.Score: 5/5

The Story of a Common Soldier of Army Life in the Civil War, 1861-1865A most excellent and authentic account of Civil War life. It made me feel like I lived it myself for a brief time while reading this account. Highly recommend it. Gary Slicker.Score: 5/5

Very worth the timeLeander’s story of his time fighting in the war of the union is very vivid and eye opening. The writing is dated using terms and words not common now however there is a simplicity to his writing that allows people not experienced in old books to read it much easier. This story is not particularly action packed he participated in multiple battles but they are his own accounts not a story fine tuned to get the blood pumping. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a better insight to the life of a infantry man slowly working his way up the ranks. Great piece of history right here..Score: 4/5

CaptivatingWritten as thought a friend on the front porch back in the 1860s. Easy to read, and a period piece with comments about life no only during the Civil War, but life back then. Highly recommended and easy reading..Score: 5/5

Good BookAn interesting read for those interested in the civil war. The book helps you see what the life of a soldier was like through the eyes of the one who lived it. Even though his regiment didn't take part in any of the major battles, it still gave an informative narrative of everyday experiences of a soldier..Score: 4/5

One of the Best!This is one of the best Civil War memoirs I have ever read. I was reading three other books at the time and let them go in favor of this one. It's well-written, informative, interesting and a pleasure to read! Wish I could have known Leander Stillwell or at least be able to tell his family how impressed I was by his story. Don't miss this one if you have an interest in the Civil War!.Score: 5/5
