A View into September
'Human Interest Stories from Antietam' by Scott L. Mingus, Sr. follows the progression of Robert E. Lee's army into Maryland in his first invasion of the North. September 1862 snap-shots and first hand short stories abound from the men and women who were there. Scott shares with the reader incidents as obscure as chance family meetings and stories of extraordinary women demonstrating courage and kindness. Also included are examples of common stories, replicated hundreds of times or more, about interactions between soldiers and civilians. Soldiers' quests for food and normalcy is repeated in many humorous and touching tales. Acts of kindness and cowardice, views from the highly educated and the common man, and scenes depicting actions of America's immigrants are all aired in this book. The reader will experience a complete range of emotions reading of what our forefathers lived. I highly recommend this book to be a jewel in everyone's library.
