THE BLOODY 85th: THE LETTERS OF MILTON McJUNKIN, A WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIER IN THE CIVIL WAR. 2000 compiled and edited by Ronn Palm, Dr. Richard Sauers, and Patrick A. Schroeder. The letters transcribed in this book were penned by Milton E. McJunkin, a 24-year-old farmer who lived near the village of Bentleyville in west Pike Run Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. He joined the Union army on October 15, 1861. These letters provide a different view of the war than that of the average Army of the Potomac soldier--the 85th PA Volunteer Infantry served in both the Army of the Potomac and the Army of the James. This distinguished regiment fought from Williamsburg, PA, to Suffolk, VA, to Goldsboro, NC, to Charleston, SC, and Morris Island. "This work is an apt tribute to a noble spirit and fine soldier as well as commemorating the reputation of a gallant and hard fighting regiment from western Pennsylvania." Included are 63 photos and military biographical sketches of McJunkin's comrades, with a post-war roster. Indexed. ISBN-1-889246-13-1 216 pages, 6 x 9 Hardbound

Great, great Grandfather's regiment August 11, 2014
Reviewer: Eric Miller from Niagara Falls, NY United States  
The letters of Milton McJunkin bring first person accounts of the experiences of a real soldier in my great, great grandfather's regiment.  It confirms the hardships and dangers of the brave men of the Army of the Potomac and the 85th PA volunteers in particular.  The supporting information about the regiment supplements McJunkin's letters and clarify some historical facts.
