Excerpt from The First Campaign of the Second Rhode Island Infantry
A few years since, it occurred to some of the comrades re siding in this city, who served in the United States Army and Navy during the war of the rebellion, to form themselves into an association under the n... ame of the Rhode Island Soldiers and Sailors Historical Society, for the purpose of collecting, as far as they were able, documents concerning the civil war, and of putting on record some of the unwritten history of that contest, in the hope that their labors might, perhaps, be of value to the future historian. As a part of the means to this end, these comrades have, from time to time, written and read before the Society papers treating of their own experiences and recol lections of notable events as they saw them. In the belief that these papers will be pleasant reading for all who were inter ested in the great con¿ict, and contain many facts of historical value, as well as tend to keep alive memories of patriotism, bravery and self-sacrifice. It is proposed to publish them in a series of pamphlets uniform in size and style for preserva tion. The initial number, The Campaign of the Second Rhode Island Infantry by Colonel Rhodes, is here presented. It was read before the Society, November 3rd, 1875, and was the first one of the series. Others are in preparation and will speedily follow.
