Margaret Hobson, local family historian and 44th Indiana Civil War researcher, has completed a three book series on the regiment.
 Steuben County was very patriotic and supported the 44th Indiana by sending a full company, Co. A, and a partial company, Co. K.

The Iron Men of Indiana's 44th Regiment, Part 1: Biographies and Regimental Statistics is a large hardbound book of 400 pages.
It includes short biographies of the 2,012 men who served followed by 20 pages, in color, of charts and graphs about the regiment. In order to make the book as reasonable as possible, 
only a limited number will be printed for those who are interested.
The book will be shrink-wrapped and mailed at a cost of $30 + $3.73 shipping. It won't be available online or in a bookstore.

The Voice of Indiana's 44th Regiment, Part 3: Battles and Provost Duty by Margaret Hobson.
This 585-page book is part three of a three part series. Part 3 is an intimate, firsthand account in the citizen-soldiers’ uncensored words, including those offensive to our modern ear, drawn from letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, military reports, memoirs, and out-of-copyright books covering the Battles of Fort Donelson, Shiloh, Stones River and Chickamauga. It then follows the soldiers into their Provost Marshal duties in Chattanooga. “Through the voices which you've collected and compiled, you've allowed us to know them as more than a regiment. You've allowed us to know them as people caught up in something much bigger than themselves. You've allowed us to see them at their best and, yes, sometimes at much less than their best. Throughout you've let their voices give us an honest picture of their patriotism, their courage, their foibles, and their weaknesses. They are real people.” This series of books has been a labor of love for the past 20 years.
The book is $41, including postage. Please contact me via email CW44thIndiana@aol.com or phone (260-238-4645) for additional information.
It will also be available at the Allen County/Fort Wayne Historical Society bookstore.
