Title: The Better Part of Valor: Albert Drury & His 1st Vermont Cavalry at Gettysburg, the Shenandoah Valley, and Beyond During the Civil War
Author: Albert Drury, Cameron Davis (editor)
SOPO’s Take: Cameron Davis sets the historical stage and covers interludes between the diaries, notebook and letters of 1st Vermont Cavalryman Albert Drury. Drury’s writing provides readers with a good look at the movements of the 1st Vermont Cavalry from 1862-1865. There is quite a bit of Petersburg coverage, given that the 1st Vermont Cavalry was only there from June 12-early August 1864 and again in March-April 1865. This is a an excellent book for a self-published effort. I highly recommend it if you are interested in the 1st Vermont Cavalry, cavalry in general, and the Petersburg Campaign.
