Though some of these Andover soldiers would not see the elephant until two years later, more than a quarter of them would never return to their beloved hometown.

Drawing on journals, letters and newspaper articles, Andover in the Civil War chronicles the journey of these brave men and brings to life the efforts of those who remained on the homefront.
