He wrote this book after his retirement. Many of his recollections of his years as a Confederate soldier are taken from a diary that he kept during the War Between the States. Rev. Goodloe states in his Introduction his reasons for joining the Confederate army, despite the fact that he had a young wife and family. He recalls his early days in the war and his participation in battles in North Mississippi, and further along around Jackson in Central Mississippi, and Louisiana where his regiment was deployed. He writes of the Battle of Vicksburg and his observations of the commanders. Goodloe gives a keen insight into the camaraderie of camp life with its discomforts and even happy times. He gives an account of religion in the army and of his opportunities to share the gospel with his fellow soldiers. To this electronic reprint, newly typeset and formatted, are added illustrations and photographs to make for a more enjoyable reading experience. An Appendix has been added by the editor, a former history teacher, containing a brief history of the 35th Alabama Regiment and excerpts from “Hardee’s Tactics for Light Infantry and Riflemen.” Titles for books for further study are also given.
