Title: “We Are Coming Father Abra’am”: The History of the 9th Vermont Volunteer Infantry, 1862-1865

Author: Don Wickman

SOPO’s Take: This is an excellent unit history.  The 9th Vermont did not arrive at the Siege of Petersburg until September 15, 1864, replacing two worn out Massachusetts regiments. Even with their abbreviated timeline at Petersburg, the author still uses over 90 pages to cover the period from September 15, 1864 to April 3, 1865.  This is a doubly valuable book given this regiment was part of the Army of the James, whose activities in front of Petersburg and Richmond are often overlooked.
