The Orphan: The Caspar Fritz Story

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Dec 22, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 107 pages
150 years ago our forefathers declared war against themselves. Six houndred and forty thousand would die. Nowhere was this more tragic than in the Texas Hill Country where a group of young German emigrants, new citizens, chose confrontation rather than concede to the confederacy. It cost many of them their lives. It is a little known story of courage and heroism detailed in a genealogy book, THE ORPHAN: THE CASPAR FRITZ STORY. An orphaned German emigrant, Caspar Fritz survived the perils of emigration, mob lynching, murders and conflict during the Civil War. His ancestors now number in the thousands. His story is told by his namesake and great grandson, Carlos Caspar Juenke.
