Mr.Ellis piloted Union men from north east Tennessee to Kentucky which were the federal lines,because they were being murdered and tortured,their wives and children had everything stolen from them including their food ,the clothing off their backs and had their homes burned to the ground.sometimes they even murdered the children.They were left to wander the cold mountains in Tennessee until they died of exposure and starvation.Mr. Ellis took their husbands through the confederate lines and returned with money and letters for their families who were still alive.He was the bravest, most humane man that I have ever read about.Was this review helpful?
