Hiram's Honor will be for sale at the 64th OVI table at the Ohio Civil War Show in Mansfield, Ohio.
In 1861 Hiram Terman joins the 82nd Ohio Infantry not sensing in the slightest what is coming. At twenty, he has just immersed himself in the boiling cauldron of the American Civil War. As the 82nd moves from battle to battle, he is tormented by the carnage around him and leans on his two friends, the religious Isaiah and the secular Seth for comfort. When the unthinkable happens and they are captured at Gettysburg and eventually sent to the whirlpool of death at Andersonville, their faith and beliefs are tested to the extreme in this true story hammered from the fiery battlefields and grinding prison camps of America's Armageddon.

As astute readers of Hiram's Honor will note, one of the 82nd Ohio Andersonville prisoners is left behind only to face the horrors of the Sultana which exploded on the Mississippi River killing most of the people on the overcrowded steamer! This story of an Andersonville-Sultana survivor is the subject of my next book and we were thrilled to see a mural of prisoners of war boarding the Sultana at Vicksburg. The mural is part of a wall of paintings along the river front in Vicksburg. We also visited with historians at Vicksburg Military Park and at the Old Courthouse Museum in downtown Vicksburg where we learned much about this tragic but surprisingly little known story of the Sultana.

In Savannah we visited the Georgia Historical Society and found the likely location of the old prison camp for Union POW's (Forsythe Park), found the likely dock area in Savannah, and the prisoner exchange area on the Savannah River (Venus Point). I was pleased that my accounts in Hiram's Honor matched up well with what we saw of the historical record in Savannah.

We had the pleasure of telling the Augusta Georgia Civil War Roundtable about Hiram's Honor. In the audience were descendants of both Union and Confederate soldiers and the discussion was enhanced by the perspectives of both. Historic Augusta is now selling Hiram's Honor at the Woodrow Wilson Boyhood Home Gift Shop (http://www.wilsonboyhoodhome.org/)
Magnolia Springs State Park where Camp Lawton site is located, Archeologists at Georgia Southern University, Camp Lawton sketch at Georgia Southern Museum.
A major part of our trip to Georgia was a visit to Camp Lawton, a Confederate prison camp near Millen, Georgia where my ancestor was held after Andersonville. The prison camp is being studied by the archeology department at Georgia Southern University and we met the team doing this valuable study of a relatively pristine Civil War site.
