January 16, 2013
The OBSERVER

"Tough & Hearty, Kimball Pearsons, Civil War Cavalryman," a recent (2012) Heritage Books release, relates the day-to-day experiences of a town of Collins farmer who enlisted in the 10th Regiment of Cavalry, New York State Volunteers, on Aug. 28, 1862. The book chronicles, through his letters and diary entries, Kimball Pearsons' life and the activities of the 10th Regiment of Cavalry over a period of approximately two years, including Pearsons' presence at the important battles of Fredericksburg and Gettysburg, and his participation in numerous raids and skirmishes. Although he was a Quaker, Pearsons avidly supported the war as necessary to preserve and restore the Union.
