This book tells the story of the Colorado Volunteers, a Union regiment, and the New Mexico campaign of 1862. The Volunteers were initially sent to guard the supply routes between Colorado and New Mexico, but were soon involved in the larger conflict. The regiment fought in several engagements, including the Battle of Glorieta Pass, and helped to secure the Union victory in the campaign. The book is a well-written account of the Colorado Volunteers' involvement in the war, and is a valuable resource for students and historians interested in the Civil War in the West.; B&W Photographs; 18mo; 309 pages.
