I am a subscriber to your list. I am interested in finding out more
about an early marxist called August von Willich. He was a Prussian,
born in 1810, and a captain in the Prussian army who resigned from the
army in 1846 and took part in the 1848 revolution. He then went to the
US where he was a notably effective Union officer in the Civil War. He
subsequently studied under Marx in Berlin and then returned to Ohio
where he died in 1878.

Anyone know of a good book or available article (in English) on this
