Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The title is somewhat misleading if the reader is expecting the author, William L. Burton, to include all ethnic groups in this book. The book is about foreign born ethnic soldiers in the Union Army and excludes Native Americans and Black troops. In fact, the book's major emphasis is on German and Irish soldiers of the Civil War, and largely about the steps taken to organize military units rather than about the battles these groups participated in.
