Soldiers during the American Civil War adopted many exotic mascots. They ranged from alligators to badgers and bear cubs to wildcats, but none were as common, loyal and affectionate as dogs. The total number of canine mascots from the period is not known, but a few attained minor celebrity status and were memorialized on reunion buttons and monuments. In this book, Mike Zucchero tells the famous stories of "Dog Jack," Harvey," and "Sallie," as well as those of lesser known four-legged friends.
