My great grandfather wrote this memoir for his children, one of whom was my grandfather. Publishing the book as both a paperback and eBook represents a labor of love to my ancestors and to those who fight our wars.

In his own words, he offers what he calls his “Excuse:”

At the earnest solicitation of my children for stories of my past life, I promised to write in my leisure moments some incidents for their perusal, as I could not always respond at their desire with an interesting story.

Memory, aided by a brief diary that I kept during my service in the army, are all the sources I have to draw from.

While I shall endeavor to be strictly truthful, I must of necessity speak of things from a personal standpoint, or as I saw them. And the impressions will be those made upon me by passing events.

If what I write meets the eye of others than those for whom they are intended, I have only this to say: It was only written for my children. And if I confer upon them as much pleasure as I shall take in gratifying them, I shall feel amply repaid.

I write. It's as simple and as complicated as that. Storytelling creates our cultural legacy.

    1. Thank you. I think one of the most rewarding things about publishing this memoir was having the generation after me recognize the beauty of what my great grandfather wrote. It made it all worthwhile.
