Adventures and Reminiscences of a Volunteer




Adventures and Reminiscences of a Volunteer is a classic Civil War biography by George T. Ulmer. Bombardment of Fort Sumter. This was the beginning and the first sound of actual civil war which inspired me, and kindled the fire of patriotism in my youthful breast. The little spark lay smoldering for two long years, ’till at last it burst forth into a full blaze. When Fort Sumter was bombarded, I was a midget of a boy; a barefooted, ragged newsboy in the city of New York. The bombardment was threatened for several weeks before it actually occurred; and many nights I would have been bankrupted, but that everyone was on the “qui vive” for the event, and I got myself into lots of trouble by shouting occasionally, “Fort Sumter Bombarded!”
