Private Joel and the Sewell Mountain Seder by Bryna J. Fireside, Shawn Costello

With permission from their commander and matzah brought in on a train from Cincinnati, Jewish members of a Civil War regiment improvise a seder to remember. The participation of three former slaves, now members of their company, lends a special meaning to this celebration of freedom.
