Unit Affiliation: (Wise), Johnson, Anderson

Title: 59th Virginia Infantry

Author: G. L. Sherwood and Jeffrey C. Weaver

BTC’s Take: The authors obviously mined some sources not easily available to the public like the Confederate Inspection reports to add more to the 59th’s story.  Unfortunately, even with those sources, there just does not appear to be a lot of information on the 59th’s activities during the Siege of Petersburg.  With a few exceptions, large gaps appear in their story.  With that said, this was one of the better H. E. Howard books in terms of the unit history length.
