BUTLER COUNTY IN THE CIVIL WAR. 2003 by Bradley Lee Pflugh. Until seven years ago, little primary source material has been made available on the triumphs and turmoil of Butler's soldiers in this conflict. Then, a large collection of newspapers surfaced containing Civil War content. Letters home, rosters of wounded, and battle reports filled these papers with news of local troops in the war. After seven years in the making, and with this invaluable collection, plus diaries, letters and other sources, Mr. Pflugh has masterfully weaved it all into the most complete account of Butler County in the Civil War to this day. He takes the reader from peace time to war time, through the battles, to going home. This book is complete with B&W photos, roster and index. LOC 2003114433 164 pages, 8 1/2 x 11 Hardbound.
