Vermont Books

cannonTHREE YEARS IN THE TENTH VERMONT BY OSCAR E. WAIT Edited by Don Wickman; 172 large format pages $40.

Kevin Graffagnino Executive Director of the Vt. Historical Society says Relatively few veterans matched Oscar Wait's care in rewriting his memories of the war. Don Wickman is truly one of Vermont's best Civil War authors.


cannonLUTHER B. HARRIS - A PRISON STORY A Vermont Soldier's Memoir of Andersonville and Other Rebel Camps by Denise Brown & Virginia Downs 137 pages $35.

This diary could easily have been lost to history were it not for the efforts of these two Vt authors. Luther was from Lyndonville Vt and became quite well off after the war and donated many things to the town. His story is a little different because he writes it as if he is telling the story to the northern soldiers who semi-rescued him many years before.


cannonIT IS SWEET AND HONORABLE TO DIE FOR THE FATHERLAND The story of the soldiers from Cabot Vermont in the Civil War by David Book 169 large format pages of text and 22 pages of pictures. $40.

Dave was the principle of the Cabot school and gave his students the project of learning everything they could about the town Civil War monument. The Latin inscription on that monument became the title of the book. What was suppose to be a school project took on a life of it's own for Dave and consumed years of his retirement. This book is a true labor of love.
