About the Book

The 112th New York Infantry Regiment served 1,017 days during the Civil War, from 1862 to 1865. They campaigned in four states, fought in 16 battles and lost 324 men, including two regimental commanders. This unit history is based on the personal papers of Chaplain William Lyman Hyde, including his war diary, journals, reports and letters to his wife. A prolific writer, Hyde’s remarkable story of service to God and country is told in his own words, providing vivid depictions of camp life, combat and its aftermath and the daily trials faced by the “Chautauqua Regiment.”
