The 58th Indiana Infantry – as part of Hascall’s Brigade on the left Union flank – played a vital role at the Battle of Stone’s River (Dec 31st, 1862 – Jan 2nd 1863).  Drawing on the regimental history written by the 58th’s chaplain – John J. Hight – and using never-before-published archives at Stone’s River National Battlefield, The 58th Indiana Infantry at Stone’s River, gives the reader a sweeping introduction to this important action involving a Hoosier unit from Gibson County, Indiana.

This is a hybrid book, using QR Code technology to link the reader to important official reports, original letters, and even the full text of Hight’s History of the 58th Indiana.

Other features in the book includes: contemporary site photos, original photos of soldiers, word clouds, maps, and more.

Published by The Center for the Study of the Civil War, this work is authored by long-time historian and blogger Kraig W. McNutt.

Best-selling author of Widow of the South, Robert Hicks say this about McNutt:

Kraig McNutt brings with him not only years of study and understanding, but the necessary passion to make the cold facts of history come alive. Driven by that passion, Kraig has honed his studies into scholarship and his scholarship into understanding. As the Civil War slips further and further into a dim past, we are fortunate to have Kraig breathing life back into the story.
