As a lieutenant and later a commander, Opdycke played pivotal roles in some of major battles of the western theater, including Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Missionary Ridge. His brigade saved the Union Army from defeat at the Battle of Franklin. Opdycke's wartime letters to his wife, Lucy, offer the immediacy of the action as it unfolded. They also reveal the political passions and provide a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a Union soldier. A thorough introduction by editors Glenn V. Longacre and John E. Haas and a preface by Peter Cozzens provide additional historical context and biographical information. _x000B__x000B_
