The Reminiscences Of Carl Shurz

I just finished reading the memoirs of General Carl Shurz, the commanding general of the 11th Corps, 82nd Ohio, and Private Terman at Gettysburg.  His account of the events of July 1, 1863 from the view of the commander on a hill match the events that happened to my ancestor who was fighting on the ground north of Gettysburg.   Click here to relive Private Terman's ordeal at Gettysburg.  Also, I learned much about events immediately following the Civil War that will help in writing my sequel to Hiram's Honor.  Click here  to read this memoir.
