Free eBooks relating to the 17th Virginia Infantry:
Note: Some eBook formats contain many typos, as scanned pages were not corrected for spelling when converting to text.
Also, breaks in continuity occur due to footnotes appearing in place on the pages where they were in the scanned text.
Reading online and eBooks in PDF are pictures of each page, not converted to text, so do not contain these common errors.
