|About the Book|
This volume, 29th Infantry Division: A Short History of a Fighting Division, tells of the fascinating history of one of the greatest infantry divisions this country has seen, the 29th Infantry. The division’s earliest ancestral connection is the Augusta County Regiment, an outgrowth of Virginia’s Colonial Militia, formed on 3 November 1741 at Beverly’s Hill Place. In its early years, the regiment fought in the French and Indian War under George Washington at Fort Necessity, and later went on to fight valiantly in the Civil War, World War I, and World War II. Includes several diagrams, photographs, and an index.
