Hello, and welcome. This site will deal exclusively with the colorful history of the Fourteenth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry in the American Civil War. The men of the Fourteenth served from August, 1862 until after the war ended, all of that time in the Second Corps of the Army of the Potomac.\r\n\r\nI became interested in the Fourteenth Connecticut while I was doing research for my historical novel, An Eye for Glory: The Civil War Chronicles of a Citizen Soldier.
The men of this regiment were tested in every battle from Antietam to Appomattox, so there was much historical content to draw from.\r\n\r\nThrough a series of weekly posts, you will learn much of the history of the Fourteenth Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. Content will be drawn from a number of sources, including History of the Fourteenth Regiment, Connecticut Vol. Infantry by Charles D. Page (1906). A complete list of bibliographical resources that I used in writing the novel may be found on my website: www.kbacon.com.
