Overview

Only, a month into their service, still green and only partially trained, Richard and his brother Rass, are thrust onto the front lines of a battle that will brand them forever. When their general surrenders them to the Confederates, Richard wonders if he’ll ever see home or battle again.

HARDSHIP AND HARDTACK follows the 126th New York Volunteer’s first year of service in the Union Army and is based on the letters the very real Richard Bassett sent home to his wife, Mary. He details life as a prisoner on parole, their subsequent return to active service and the painful waiting as their names are dragged through the mud and their reputations unduly tarnished. It is not until nearly a year has passed that redemption comes in the form of another battle—at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
