Army Life in a Black Regiment is Higginson's stirring account of his wartime experiences. Shaped by American Romanticism and imbued with Higginson's interest in both man and nature, the narrative ranges from detailed reports on daily life to a vivid description of the author's near escape from cannon fire to sketches that conjure up the beauty and mystery of the Sea Islands.
This edition of Army Life also features a selection of Higginson's essays, including "Nat Turner's Insurrection" and "Emily Dickinson's Letters".
