John Ransom's Civil War Diary

"The Civil War produced many diaries, but few as appealing and readable as this one." - Publishers Weekly"An altogether exciting and unique, almost priceless documentary." - Library Journal"A tale of adventure, of suspense from beginning to end, of fierce hate and great love, of the incredible callousness of man and the incredible warmth of man - with the added knowledge that 'it really happened.'" - Bruce CattonJohn L. Ransom joined the Union Army in 1862, serving as brigade quartermaster of the Ninth Michigan Volunteer Cavalry. A year later, the 20-year-old soldier was captured in Tennessee and interned at the notorious Georgia prison camp, Andersonville. Ransom's harrowing firsthand account of Civil War prison life constitutes a valuable historical record - a true story not only of cruelty, death, and deprivations but also of?acts of courage and kindness that ensured the young soldier's survival and preserved his faith in humanity.
