These are the personal journals of Homer A. Plimpton, who joined the 39th Volunteer Regiment of Illinois in 1861 and rose from Private to Colonel of the regiment. "On April 2nd of 1865, what remained of the 39th participated in the attack on Fort Gregg, a rebel defense position guarding Petersburg. Led by Captain Plimpton, the 39th charged the fort, which was made of earthworks in a semi-circle with a deep moat in front. The 1889 regimental history has this to say about Homer: 'His career as a soldier was noticeable for the unwearied attention to duty of whatever kind and was remarkable as an example of rapid and well-deserved promotion'." Charles Stanley, student of the 39th regiment and Chicago based reporter. The Mural on the front cover is the Battle of Fort Gregg, used by permission of the US National Park Service.
