Civil War Diary of Freeman Colby (continued):
“Casey’s Tactics” refers to the standard military manuals of the day:
- 1862: Vol. I: Schools of the Soldier & Company
- 1862: Vol. II: School of the Battalion
- 1862: Vol. III: Evolutions of Bridgade, Corps, &c.
Read them all & be ready for a test tomorrow on the parade grounds!
