What a great American hero Captain Egan was. One of the better personal recollections of a Civil War veteran that I have read. He was very intelligent, savvy and a polished gentleman. I love his description of the United States in 1860: "the grand old days of American Liberty, when individuals were taxed lightly and governed little but wisely"...We long for those days in 2013! Excellent book!
Great book! Gives fascinating details of the Civil War..great book for Civil War buffs, W. Va. History scholars, and those interested in the culture and politics of the time. A true American patriot who escaped death and a Confederate prison and saw the war to the end at Appamatox.
