 Andersons Survive the Civil War takes the reader on a fascinating journey of one Irish family's relocation from New York to New Orleans right as the Civil War was about to erupt. The Anderson family survived not only the long wagon ride south, but also the tense years of conflict that saw Union soldiers take over the city of New Orleans in hostile fashion. The book, thankfully, does not stop there. You will go up and down the Mississippi River on a riverboat with Michael Anderson, "The World's Greatest Magician," as he performs nightly in the trade his parents taught him. You will also follow the paths of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson and all of their children as they spread across the country and make a good living in the careers they choose, or have chosen for them. You will also see how love can persist over many years and thousands of miles, against all odds.

About the author (2014)

 This book was started when I was in high school, which was around fifty years ago. My high school English teacher gave us an assignment to write a short story. When I received my story back, Mr. Avey had written a note on my papers: “Good story! I hope you will finish it someday.” He has no idea how that little comment stayed with me all of these years.

Being retired with more free time, I have finally finished my story.  Not only did I finish it, I turned it into a book. I am dedicating my book to Mr. Jim Avey, who was my English teacher at Holbrook High School.

It goes to show, “Teachers do make a difference.” With some of us, it just takes a little longer for it to show.  Married to Frank Baumgardner, who is retired from the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.

Mother to Charles Bryson of Vero Beach, FL, and Cheryl Bryson Friday of Dallas, NC. Grandmother to Michael C. Friday, Edward Friday and Carol Ann. Also from Dallas, NC.
