9780820321745: Blue-Eyed Child of Fortune: The Civil War Letters of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw

"In Russell Duncan's new edition of the colonel's letters, we meet Robert Gould Shaw at last as a person, not as a symbol. . . . Readers of Shaw's letters will find a young man, not always deep or profound, but with a quality of character forged in conflict. . . . Of course, most readers will want to turn to the letters recounting his experiences as commander of the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts, and they will not be disappointed in the story of how colonel and soldiers taught one another how to be men as well as soldiers. . . . There is something heroic in struggling against one's limitations to achieve greatness. Editor Duncan should be congratulated for reminding us of this truth through bringing us closer to Shaw."--"Journal of American History"

Vom Verlag:

The letters presented in this volume portray abolitionist hero Robert Gould Shaw in his own words, as he describes his coming of age in upper-class Boston circles and in two years of battle. They detail the transformation of a cosmopolitan son into a disciplines soldier.
