Victor E. Taylor has resurrected Robert Drummond's memoir, which may have been lost forever in a museum, and has produced a tremendously moving book. The research he has done surrounding the memoir is extremely professional. Once into the memoir, the book is impossible to put down. Drummond was a brave Union soldier who was able to forgive and help his country heal after the horrors he endured in the atrocious conditions of the Confederate prison camps. After surviving the prison camps, he became a statesman, attorney and district attorney in Auburn, New York, from where he left to join the war with the 111 Infantry after gathering at the home of William H. Seward, Secretary of State under President Abraham Lincoln.
