Recollections of A Private Confederate Soldier

Robert Hicks, author of New York Times bestseller The Widow of the South said, "Thomas Cartwright has partnered up with Michael Holloway to give us Sam Watkins’ Co. Aytch and what a gift it is. For those of us who have loved ol' Sam and his Co. Aytch, this is long overdue. For those who have never read Co. Aytch, it is the best introduction I can think of."

Hicks added, "In Sam's own words, Cartwright movingly retells the story of Sam's adventures in the service of the South. It is hard to imagine anyone that Sam would have rather had retell his story. Added to all of this is the wonderful music that Michael Holloway wrote and performed in accompaniment to Sam's words.

Cartwright and Holloway have hit this one out of the park. This CD is a must for anyone who loves the rich history of the American Civil War." CD is $24.00 plus shipping and sales tax (for Tennessee residents) .
