I came across your web site (my compliments) and I would like to bring to your attention to what I believe is a unique
book and an unknown but very moving true story that will particularly interest those with Civil War ancestors--

Hiram's Honor: Reliving
Private Terman's Civil War, ISBN 978-0615-27812-4.

Second Bull Run,Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Richmond (Belle Island), and Andersonville are prominently featured in the book which is printed and distributed by Ingram Book Company. For more, step into the Civil War at http://hiramshonor.blogspot.com.


Professional reviews of the book can be seen at http://www.cincinnaticwrt.org/data/articles/Terman_Review_Hirams%20Honor.pdf and http://www.civilwarnews.com/reviews/2010br/january/hiram_terman_b011004.html.


The unique thing about this book is that I assume the identity of my ancestor in all of his battles and prison misery. It was quite a challenge to match every detail that actually happened (dairies, letters, first-hand accounts) with a first person dramatized and riveting story of how I would have reacted in his situation.
