The 18th North Carolina Regiment has the dubious distinction of firing the volley at Chancellorsville, Virginia, that mortally wounded General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson.

This book is a compilation of Diaries and Trench Mortar Memories contributed by various members of the 32nd Divisional Artillery, and apart from anything else it goes some way to make up for the lack of a full divisional history.
