Description - A Hundred Days to Richmond by Jim Leeke

"... an interesting and readable account of those whose service to the Blue was brief but in some cases dangerous and exciting." - The Civil War News"This useful and entertaining book presents, mainly in the words of the participants, the experience of the 35,000 Ohioans who served in 100-day regiments during the summer of 1864." -ChoiceDrawn from Civil War diaries, letters, and eyewitness accounts, A Hundred Days to Richmond tells for the first time the complete story of Ohio's "100-day men," state militia troops offered for Union service for 100 days. Their tales-unique and memorable, and unmistakably American-reflect the hope, fear, determination, horror, humor, and grit of the Civil War.
