Home of the Brave
In Their Own Words: Immigrant Soldiers Who Received the Medal of Hornor During the Civil War

by Les Rolston

Home of the Brave—In Their Own Words: Immigrants Who Received The Medal Of Honor In The Civil War  is a collection of stories about some of the hundreds of immigrant soldiers who fought in the American Civil War. The book offers vivid descriptions of the childhoods of these men in their native lands as well as the heroic feats performed by these ordinary soldiers during wartime. The details come largely from the Medal of Honor military files of these soldiers. 

Often even more interesting than the exploits of these men is what happened to the Medal of Honor recipients after the war.  Many of the men or their widows felt abandoned by the very government they sought to preserve in their declining years. The book includes doctors' reports to the government vividly describing the toll the war took on these bodies of these heroes, but not on their spirit. The book brings to life these often unsung heroes and shows that there is more to the War Between the States than the brother-versus-brother drama we are often shown. There was a population of those from outside this country who fought and died for her during this most internal of conflicts.

Trembling in the Balance:
The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal During the Civil War

by Timothy R. Snyder

Trembling in the Balance: The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal During the Civil War is the story of a canal company's struggle to operate a significant business enterprise in one of the nation's major theaters of war. Since the C&O Canal company was located on Maryland's southern border with Virginia, it experienced much of the war firsthand. Due to the proximity of the canal to so many conflicts, large and small, this book includes a great deal of military history in great detail. The canal played a role in major battles, like Antietam and Gettysburg, and in smaller conflicts, such as Ball's Bluff and Stonewall Jackson's raids on Dam Number 5 (the dam was owned by the canal company). A facinating account of this transportation artery during a time of great military upheval.
