The author takes you on a journey into the mind of a young man in concern for the state of his country. And into the life that concern led him to in a time of Civil War. His way of taking the fight to the enemy to finish the "unpleasantness" and be done with it led to his many acts of daring, courage, and valor. Acting as many men did then, unshaken, by the cruelty of battle, and certain death that undoubtadly stood before them in the form of a hail of lead and grape shot, He stood and fought and charged and was the victor on many great battle fields. The author also describes his journey to washington where he was met by the acting Secretary of War and presented with a Medal of Honor. His story is gripping and insightful and leads us to the deepest places within ourselves to search for the threads of commonality still alive in us today, as such a time is so far from our imaginations in the modoern world today. A truly amzing read.
