Ohio Civil War Show Mansfield, Ohio April 30- May 1, 2011

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.

Ken Burns The Civil War on PBS

 On Picket Duty

I have seen Burn's The Civil War (now showing on PBS) at least 5 times and each exposure  brings forth new thoughts and feelings of the kind that no doubt provided much of the emotional power behind Hiram's Honor.
