"This From George"
by Eileen M. Patch


You could call it one manís perspective on his American Civil War experience or a biography of a short life. This set of letters written home from assignments with the 89th NY Regiment of Volunteer Infantry reveals the personality and values of George Magusta Englis. Like peeling layers from an onion, each letter puts the reader closer to the soldierís soul. Using timely phrases such as "On to Richmond," and "All for the Union," he most often closed his letters "This from George."
