Excerpt from History of the Seventh Maine Light Battery, Volunteers in the Great Rebellion: Containing a Brief Daily Account of Its Services, Without Comments or Attempt to Criticise or Praise the Brave Boys in This Command
The writing of any history is a difficult task, espe... cially such an one as this, after so long a time and where so few of all the people are interested, but where those few have an interest beyond the usual historic events which are made matters of public record.
Ours is a history of personal events, which deeply interest all those who were members of. Our organization, and as such will be scanned and criticised by every member: and it will 'be a miracle if 'no one finds within its pages something wrong, either of omission or commission; but, being pressed into the service as your historian, I have done the best I could. You could not expect more.
