In [this book], Brian R. McEnany follows a group of cadets through their initiation, coursework, and experiences on the battlefield. Even before graduation, their class motto--"Joined in common cause"--was severely tested when half the class resigned, leaving only twenty-eight cadets to finish the program. Drawing heavily on primary sources, McEnany presents a fascinating chronicle of twelve Union and four Confederate classmates who became allies and enemies during the largest conflict ever on American soil. Their vivid accounts provide new perspectives, not only on legendary battles such as Antietam, Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, and the Overland and Atlanta campaigns, but also on lesser-known battles such as Port Hudson, Olustee, High Bridge, and Pleasant Hills. There are numerous studies of West Point and its more famous graduates, but McEnany's groundbreaking book brings to life the struggles and contributions of its graduates as junior officers and in small units. Generously illustrated with more than one hundred photographs and maps, this enthralling collective biography illuminates the war's impact on a unique group of soldiers and the institution that shaped them. -- Back cover
