Published in 1865, shortly after the end of the Civil War, "Life and Public Services of an Army Straggler "is a fictional account of the misadventures of Will Fishback, Confederate deserter from Georgia, as he wanders the southern countryside he had sworn to protect. In its comic portrayal of the rascally Fishback, "An Army Straggler "pays homage to the forms and dialects of the picaresque frontier folktale.
A piece of high-spirited, tell-tale fiction in which the author is thoroughly enjoying himself... Confederate Warren may have lost the war, but he did not lose his sense of humor.
