In 1863, the news of Northern victories at Gettysburg and Vicksbury made the outcome of the Civil War clear to young Wiley Britton, who was fighting for the Union with the Sixth Kansas Cavalry. Trying to do his job and stay alive, private Britton wrote about engagements at Pea Ridge, Prairie Grove, Cane Hill, and elsewhere. "Memoirs of the Rebellion on the Border, 1863" supplies a personal dimension unavailable to later historians, describing at firsthand the look of the countryside, the plight of its citizens, and, most poignantly, the faces and voices of comrades marching into history. Reprinted from the original 1882 edition.
