From the Publisher

Richard P. Cobb tells the story of his great-grandfather, Ambrose Lambert Cobb, in this true account of the Civil War.

Ambrose Lambert Cobb witnessed wonders and horrors that were sweeping in scope, including four long years as a Union soldier during the Civil War, which resulted in the deaths of 620,000 Americans.

For both moral and religious reasons, the Cobb family held no quarter with the idea of enslaving a fellow being, and when President Abraham Lincoln issued a call for men, Cobb and his best friend, Aden King, joined the 4th Iowa Volunteer Infantry.

Living twelve miles from the border of Missouri, a slave state, it was a courageous decision for the best friends. More than once they would nearly die of wounds, but they would somehow survive and stay in touch through yearly reunions with the old regiment.

Take a step back in time to relive the greatest, most painful war in our history, and learn how it continues to reverberate through the nation with Ambrose.
