Badax Tigers is a rich chronicle of the experiences of Company C of the 18th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry during the entire Civil War. Seen through the eyes of Private Thomas Jefferson Davis, this is an extraordinarily complete picture of a typical Federal volunteer company in the Civil War. Davis's letters, supplemented by newspaper articles and letters of other soldiers, offer readers an intimate and revelatory unit history.
Thomas P. Nanzig is the editor of The Civil War Memoirs of a Virginia Cavalryman: Lt. Robert T. Hubard Jr. and the president of the Ann Arbor Civil War Round Table.
