Excerpt from The Seventieth Indiana: Volunteer Infantry in the War of the Rebellion

A New England clergyman with a wide experience in literary affairs, hearing that the author had undertaken the history of the Seventieth Indiana Regiment, wrote to a friend: I am very, very sorry, for do what he may, he Will please nobody, will displease a good many, will con sume an immense amount of time, and will make neither money nor reputation.

His prophecy in regard to time has proved true, and very likely the rest of it will be fulfilled, yet as the work was entered upon without thought of any of these things, and only in response to the urgent request of the survivors of the regiment, it is to be hoped that every member, bear ing in mind the impossibility of producing anything satis factory at this late date, will view the result indulgently, and that at least nobody will be offended.

It will be seen by those who read the story, that while the men Who composed this organization were the equals of any to be found in other regiments, and far superior to the average of the men who staid at home, they were only human beings; that no effort has been made to hide faults or mistakes, and that the aim of the writer has been sim ply to give a truthful record of the life of plain American youth, Who followed the ?ag until it ?oated over every spot from which it had been torn down.

The children of the veterans, who may look in vain for an account of the personal exploits of their fathers, must lay their disappointment to the modesty of those fathers.
