" The Battle Rages Higher tells, for the first time, the story of the Fifteenth Kentucky Infantry, a hard-fighting Union regiment raised largely from Louisville and the Knob Creek valley where Abraham Lincoln lived as a child. Although recruited in a slave state where Lincoln received only 0.9 percent of the 1860 presidential vote, the men of the Fifteenth Kentucky fought and died for the Union for over three years, participating in all the battles of the Atlanta campaign, as well as the battles of Perryville, Stones River and Chickamauga. Using primary research, including soldiers’ letters and diaries, hundreds of contemporary newspaper reports, official army records, and postwar memoirs, Kirk C. Jenkins vividly brings the Fifteenth Kentucky Infantry to life. The book also includes an extensive biographical roster summarizing the service record of each soldier in the thousand-member unit. Kirk C. Jenkins, a descendant of the Fifteenth Kentucky's Captain Smith Bayne, is a partner in a Chicago law firm.

“Tomorrow morning we set out on a campaign which will be remembered. God grant it aid to bring to a speedy end this terrible and lamentable war!” So wrote Major Henry Hitchcock on the eve of General William Sherman’s epic march across Georgia to the sea. Hitchcock, a new member of Sherman’s staff, was right about the fame, or infamy, that would attach to the campaign. His diaries and letters describe at first hand the destructive swath Sherman’s army cut through Georgia and the Carolinas. The major, religious and trained in the law, watches the burning and pillage with as much sorrow as satisfaction. If his sympathy for the Southern people is strong, so is his devotion to the Union and its unstoppable general.
