"originated from information encountered by the author in his research for his superb history of the Civil War's 20th Maine Infantry. It is written in the same clear and easy-to-follow manner. Though the story of the 27th Maine's non-eventful, 9-months' service in the defenses about Washington is quite adequately related, the real focus of this work is the mass award of the Medal of Honor to all members of the regiment, what happened to the medals issued, and how the award of these medals led to, in the 1890's and 1900's to evaluation of standards for issuance of the medal."
