"Byers was a private, sergeant, and adjutant in the 5th Iowa. He was captured at Chattanooga in November 1863 and was held in such Southern prisons as Libby, Macon, Charleston, and Columbia. He escaped twice and enjoyed some highly irregular adventures in the process. Byers' narrative, which is well written although romantic, includes pen pictures of Grant and Sherman. The latter's devastation of Southern territory is depicted as necessary and not especially brutal. Although the book is sometimes characterized as a prison narrative, Byers also described his experiences on such fields as Shiloh, Corinth, and Vicksburg." - Krick, Neale Books, 65. He was also the author of the poem, put to music and popular in the North, "Sherman's March to the Sea". Uncommon.
