Recommended Reading: The
Thirty-seventh North Carolina Troops: Tar Heels in the Army of Northern Virginia, by Michael C. Hardy. Description: It vividly reflects
the unit’s four years’ service, told largely in the soldiers’ own words. Drawn from letters, diaries, and
postwar articles and interviews, this history of the 37th North Carolina follows the unit from its organization in November
1861 until its surrender at Appomattox. Continued below...
The book includes photographs of the key players in the 37th’s story as well as maps illustrating
the unit’s position at several engagements. Appendices include a complete roster of the unit and a listing of individuals
buried in large sites such as prison cemeteries. (Great for genealogy, too.) A bibliography and index are also included.
