The 25Th North Carolina Infantry: History and Roster of a Mountain-bred Regiment in the Civil War

by Carroll C. Jones

From the publisher:
This historical account covers the 25th Regiment North Carolina infantry troops during the Civil War. Farmers and farmers' sons left their mountain homesteads to enlist with the regiment at Asheville in August 1861 in order to defend their homeland from a Yankee invasion. The book chronicles the unit's defensive activities in the Carolina coastal regions and the battlefield actions at Seven Days, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Plymouth, and Petersburg. In addition, casualty and desertion statistics are included, along with a complete regimental roster and more than 125 photos, illustrations, and maps.
