Civil War Author and Historian Patrick A. Schroeder has written an extremely interesting and detailed history of the 5th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment (Duryee's Zouaves) from the Civil War years 1863 to 1865. This outstanding book is a continuation of the book "Vortex of Hell" written by the late Civil War Author and Historian Brian C. Pohanka who wrote the forward to the book. This book "We Came to Fight" tells of how the regiment had to regroup and reform after tremendous losses during the first three years of fighting in the eastern theatre of the Civil War under the Army of the Potomac. 1863 saw the regiment "retired" from the battle field as the regiment loss many officers and enlisted men due to deaths and wounds received from battle and disease. Leading the regiment was Colonel Cleveland Winslow, a strict disciplinarian who was also battle toughened. Colonel Winslow led the recruitment drive to replenish the regiment and was able to form a new 5th New York from prior soldiers of the 5th, new recruits, and forming the regiment from soldiers of other regiments such as the 14th Brooklyn. During this time the regiment was "restless" and some of the soldiers were arrested for the usual charges that occurs when a regiment is out of the thick of battle and gets bored (charges such as drunkenness on duty, insubordination, deserting a post) was common. Colonel Winslow had to arrest and charge the soldiers both officers and enlisted if they misbehaved. The Colonel also was strict on military appearance and uniformity and would fine the soldiers if their uniform was not up to standard or if a soldier was missing a part of the uniform.
The regiment missed the opportunity to fight in the battle of Gettysburg due to reforming the regiment. The opportunity for battle arose again when the 5th New York obtained a sufficient amount of soldiers to go into battle. Colonel Winslow who was an acquaintance and friend of General Governour K. Warren and asked the regiment to go back into battle. General Warren granted the request and the men went into the Battle of Bethesda and fought tough.
The Confederate soldiers noted how tall and tough the soldiers of the 5th New York were and though the 5th had to retreat from the battle, they still fought tough and the Confederate losses as they advanced were many. The regiment went thru the hardships of trench warfare during the Battle of Petersburg and this is where Colonel Winslow suffered a fatal wound (shot in the shoulder and had his arm amputated where infection set in and died soon afterwards). Colonel Winslow had his funeral at a church in Wall Street, New York where it was attended by many.
Afterwards, the 5th New York regiment participated in the many battles under General U.S. Grant and advanced steadily to Richmond. This regiment fought at the terrible and horrific battles of Cold Harbor and the siege of Petersburg. The men fought hard and had tremendous losses at the Battle of Five Forks but were present during the final days of the Civil War and were stationed at Appomattox Court House where Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered.
Patrick Schroeder has written a fine account of this hard fought regiment with the Zouave Uniforms. He tells about the enlisted soldiers and officers comprised of the 5th New York with great narrative and details. Excellent photos of the officers and enlisted are throughout the chapters and you see the pictures of the men of this great regiment. This is not a boring regimental Civil War booked bogged down with details. This is a fascinating read of the men of the 5th New York and their personal history in and out of the battles that the Army of The Potomac fought in. This regiment participated in the grand review and paraded down Washington D.C.'s Pennsylvania Avenue and was recognized by the high ranking Union Generals such as U.S. Grant, and brigade commander G.K. Warren. I firmly believe that this regiment would of earned many Presidential Unit Citations if the award was present during the Civil War. These were fine men from New York and took justified pride in their uniform and their conduct during battle. The Army of Northern Virginia took notice when they fought this hard fighting Zouave Regiment.
Patrick Schroeder, who is the Park Historian at Appomattox Court House Historical Park and is the author of many other outstanding books and biographies of soldiers and regiments also is a Civil War such as More Myths About Lee’s Surrender, The Confederate Cemetery At Appomattox, Civil War Soldier Life: In Camp and Battle, The Fighting Quakers, Tar Heels, A Duryee Zouave, Recollections and Reminiscences of Old Appomattox County and Its People, We Came To Fight, Campaigns of the 146th New York, The Bloody 85th, The Highest Praise of Gallantry & Bucktails: A Photographic History. Mr. Schroeder is also a Civil War reenactor of the 5th New York has evident admiration and passion about the 5th New York. Mr. Schroder and the late Civil War Historian Brian Pohanka did outstanding research of the 5th New York Zouave's and it is evident in their books about the regiment. It is a fascinating and excellently told history of the 5th New York Regiment. It is one of the best regimental histories of a regiment of the Civil War that I have read in a long time. It is highly recommended to those Civil War buffs and scholars who want to know about a Zouave Regiment and the Army of the Potomac and the battles of the eastern theatre of the Civil War. I can't recommend this book highly enough and I look forward to reading more books that Patrick Schroeder has written and the books he will write and publish in the future!
