Loyal Hearts: Histories of American Civil War Canines 


During the Civil War, regiments as well as individual soldiers adopted many exotic mascots ranging from animals such as eagles, alligators, and badgers, to bear cubs and wildcats. However, not surprisingly, the most common mascot was a dog. The total number of canine mascots during the Civil War is not known, but a few attained celebrity status and were memorialized on reunion buttons and monuments such as Sallie, who is depicted on the 11th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment’s monument at Gettysburg. In this book, author Mike Zucchero tells the famous stories of Dog Jack, Harvey, and Sallie, as well as many of those lesser known four-legged friends. All Civil War buffs who ever owned and loved a dog will truly enjoy this wonderful book !!!
