New Civil War book

In this unique, historically-accurate novel based on the first-person experiences of his ancestor in the Civil War, Dr. Max Terman takes us back in time to Second Bull Run, Gettysburg, Belle Island prison, and Andersonville. You'll walk with Private Hiram Terman, a sensitive yet dutiful soldier, his two friends--the secular, cunning yet emotional Seth and the religious, unswerving Isaiah as they experience marches, camp-life, battles, capture, and prison camps. Also encountered are struggling generals, desperate civilians, ruthless fellow prisoners, and enemy soldiers, some mean and heartless, others kindly. Based on actual eyewitness accounts and real events, this is a story you'll never forget, a fitting tribute to the upcoming 150 year anniversary of the American Civil War.

I am pleased to report that Hiram's Honor is available now at Andersonville National Historic Site (see photo above) where Private Hiram Terman was a prisoner of war from February 1863 to September 1864.
