Review of Hurrah For Georgia: History of 38th Georgia Infantry

Hurrah For Georgia! (The History of the 38th Georgia Regiment)
By D. Gary Nichols
A15 Publishing

Reviewed by Keith Jones

This is an excellent work of regimental history. Nichols great flow and style is backed up by meticulous research and fact checking. This beautifully laid out book contains dozens of hard to find photographs of members of the 38th Georgia Infantry.

I was glad to see a history of the 38th Georgia Infantry as this was the regiment in which both grandfathers of my mother served. The vivid detail and thorough research Nichols poured into this project brings the actions of these men to life on the page before you.

Overall, this is among the best regimental histories I have read. This should be in the collection of any Georgian, or any military history buff, who wants to understand the bravery and sacrifice of the common citizen in this bloody war.
