Riassunto: At the outbreak of the Civil War, Connecticut was one of the smallest states in the Union, but that did not prevent its citizens from joining the Union cause in large numbers. In "Civil War Regiments from Connecticut," the history of each regiment raised for service from the Constitution State is given. Each history names the senior officers, the battles in which the regiments fought, the commands in which it served, the number of men who enlisted, and the casualties it sustained in killed, wounded, missing throughout the war. Connecticut regiments fought primarily in the Eastern Theater. Some, however, saw service along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, and in the Western Theater while attached to Burnsides' Corps. Five Connecticut regiments-the Second Heavy Artillery, and the Seventh, Tenth, Eleventh, and Fourteenth Infantry-made William F. Fox's list of 300 Fighting Regiments, which can be found in "Regimental Losses in the American Civil War." Connecticut sent over 45,000 of its men to fight, losing nearly 2,000 in killed and mortally wounded and another 3,400 by disease. "Civil War Regiments from Connecticut" is a great reference source for any Civil War enthusiast or historian and a necessary volume for anyone studying Connecticut or New England history.
