Early in May 1861, twenty-one-year-old Sam R. Watkins of Columbia, Tennessee, joined the First Tennessee Regiment, Company H, to fight for the Confederacy. Of the 120 original recruits in his company, Watkins was one of only seven to survive every one of its battles, from Shiloh to Nashville. Twenty years later, with a "house full of young 'rebels' clustering around my knees and bumping about my elbows, " he wrote this remarkable account of "Co. Aytch" - its common foot soldiers, its commanders, its Yankeee enemies, its victories and defeats, and its ultimate surrender on April 26, 1865.
