|About the Book|
FOUR YEARS OF FIGHTING is Charles Coffin?s engrossing account of his eyewitness experiences as an Army War Correspondent during the Civil War, from the first battle at Bull Run to the fall of Richmond. Coffin was in Savannah soon after its occupation by Sherman on his great ?March to the Sea?. He walked the streets of Charleston in her hour of deepest humiliation and rode into Richmond on the day that the stars of the Union were thrown in triumph to the breeze above the confederate Capitol. Coffin?s authentic narratives of events and incidents of life in camp, hospital and on the march during the long hours of battle on land and at sea reproduce the scenes of the Civil War.
