REFLECTIONS OF A GREAT WAR
The War Between the States As  I Saw It.
Reminiscent, Historical, and Personal
By A. W. Sparks.

Read the personal memoirs of a teenage soldier from North Texas in Titus Grays, Company I, 9th Texas Cavalry,  Ross' Texas Brigade. The daily accounts of hardship, combat, and the life of an enlisted man, is fantastic. The similarities of his service in the 1860's is so like  the 1960's in Vietnam, it's amazing.
