Sam Postlethwaite was a Confederate soldier buried in an unmarked grave in Rhode Island. Beginning with nothing more than a handful of dirt, author Les Rolston's innocent curiosity about this mysterious soldier's grave became a journey of thousands of miles that eventually led him to the soldier's family. The result is this factual account of Postlethwaite's odyssey and the author's determined efforts to learn his story.
Other important facets of this affecting historical account are the experiences of Postlethwaite's 14-year-old brother, who found glory with Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley; and a boy from a prominent Rhode Island family who was emotionally ruined by the Civil War. Both their families, embittered by war, were destined to merge through a Civil War romance and marriage. This book is a tribute to all of the people, Northerners and Southerners, who joined together to choose forgiveness and understanding over bitterness and hatred.

Good Story But
The fact that the guy reading a historical book about the civil war could not pronounce Potomac or Appomattox correctly was incredibly annoying to me. I'd like to listen to it again but I can't take it. Seriously who picked this guy to read the book and how is it that no one corrected his pronunciation? It's Pa Toe Mack and Ap Pa Mat Tics ! Ugh

Decent story but narration lacks
A tough listen mainly because, as a Virginian, it distracted me getting through all the regularly mispronounced terminology of key words like 'Potomac' and 'Appomattox'. I wonder how familiar the narrator is with rudimentary Civil War history? The sound quality was somewhat poor as well.
Any additional comments?
A good story about a Confederate soldier without getting technical.
My only complaint is neither the editor or the reader is a Civil War fan as one will find with the miss pronounciations of rivers and people. Don't let that stop you but you will yell out the proper pronunciation, just ask my co-workers
