An avid reader of military history since his mid-teens, Joe's interest in the Civil War was rekindled in 1993 when he discovered his great-great grandfather had served in the 28th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, U.S. This discovery led him to research and write about the American Civil War.
Joe was awarded the "1st Annual Immigrants in the Civil War Award" for his five books about Germans in the Civil War. The award was presented by Long Island Wins Blog in 2014..

I had a family member who served in Co. H of the 32nd Indiana. He is not mentioned at all and most of the enlisted men are not. But for a thorough understanding of the background of this regiment and their experiences in the war, I find this an invaluable book as I proceed with my genealogical research. Also, as a "Civil War buff" I can tell you it is a great read.
