Tip of the hat to @RealTimeWWII, @RosiesWWII, and @SamuelPepys for the inspiration. Special thanks to the New York Times, who embedded reporters with front-line troops 150 years ago. Also special thanks to the editors of the Times' compendium on CW articles. I did not copy that book, but found it to be inspirational, and I highly recommend it to any history buff. Reading through those pages, you get a real sense of the war as an immediate thing with an uncertain end . . . which is what I've tried to recreate here.
