1 POPCHOCK, Barry, Editor SOLDIER BOY. The Civil War Letters of Charles O. Musser, 29th Iowa
Iowa City University of Iowa Press 1995 0877455236 / 9780877455233 First Edition Hardcover Fine VG 
260pp. Illus. in text. Blood and anger, bragging and pain, are all part of this young Iowa soldier's vigorous words about war and soldiering. A 20-year-old farmer from Council Bluffs, Charles O. Musser was one of 76,000 Iowans who enlisted to wear the blue uniform. He was a prolific writer, sending at least 130 letters home during his service with the 29th Iowa Volunteer Infantry. A fine view of the common soldier which takes a rare look at the Trans-Mississippi theatre, traditionally undervalued by historians. Musser was in the midst of the action on Independence Day, 1863, and lived to graphically describe one of the bloodiest Civil War battles. Bibliography and Index.
