Ed Rutan: If I Have To Go and Fight, I Am Willing

Taking a broad view of the Union soldiers’ experience in the Petersburg campaign, “If I Have Got to Go and Fight, I Am Willing” covers in depth not just the battles, but also subjects such as motivations for enlistment, ties with home, medical care, religious faith, citizen-soldiers, the 1864 election, prisoners of war, desertion, the post-war lives of the soldiers, and even the weather. A fighting regiment, the 179th New York Volunteers served in the Petersburg campaign from start to finish.
