Told by and from the point of view of the soldiers themselves, the compelling stories of eighteen men from a small town before, during and after the Civil War are featured in the unique new book
Answering the Call to Duty: Saving Custer, Heroism at Gettysburg, POWs and other Stories of Michigan’s Small Town Soldiers in the Civil War by Rick Liblong.
One man saved Gen. George Armstrong Custer’s life, three died at Gettysburg, two were prisoners, one was a doctor, another a bugler and another raised a company of cavalry troops and died leading them into battle with Gen. Custer. Some lived to old age and five brothers served together.
Copiously illustrated with historic photographs, many never seen before, the 192-page book is a must read for Civil War buffs, history lovers or anyone who just wants a good book to curl up with.
“Answering the Call to Duty…” is published by Arbutus Press. Signed copies are available from the author.
