"Through Ordinary Eyes is highly recommended reading. Through these letters, the reader gains not only a glimpse of one Civil War soldier's life and death but also a much fuller understanding of the support provided by his family back home as they sustained their eldest son and brother in his determination to support the Union." Thomas R. Turner, Professor of History, Bridgewater State College. "Whether one studies religious life, the history of medicine and disease, the industrialization of America, or military history in its fullest sense, this manuscript provides valuable information ... I see it as a uniquely valuable addition to the history of the United States, and a resource that both scholars and students will want to exploit." Mary R. Habeck, Asst. Professor, Department of History, Yale University.
