Little more than a remote outpost in central New York, the rural town of Courtland was home to dozens of men who fought for the 23rd New York Volunteers during the Civil War. Their story, however, goes beyond their battlefield exploits at Antietam and Fredericksburg; the experiences of the 23rd can only be understood fully, suggests author Edmund J. Raus, Jr., when placed in a broader historical context that includes topics such as civilians' attitudes about race and the difficulties that faced soldiers returning home.
