5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Chronicles February 11, 2004
By A Customer
Not being a serious student of history, I came across this book purely by accident, it was given to me as a gift. However, once I started to read this narrative I could not help to actually become interested in the fate of these Confederate Soldiers who are buried so far North of their beloved South.The author Mr Walter manages to keep the tone of the book quite easy to read and obviously put into it a great deal of research and care. If you are interested in the Civil War or captivating true stories this book is a definite winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!!!! February 4, 2004
By A Customer
Needing to find some information on a long lost relative that fought on the losing side of the Civil War, and knowing that he had perished under Northern captivity, I turned to this book and voila! found my ancestor.
Mr Walter has written a splendid book. Thoroughly researched yet light on the palate, I'd recommend this book to anyone with a curious mind about the history of our great country.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am Biased! January 7, 2004
I have had the pleasure of knowing John Walter for almost 20 years. I attended the CCD classes that he held at St Margret's School in Middle Village.
I am also priviledged to have had John do some research for me on a relative that served in the Union Army. Not only did John take the time to research the information for me at the National Archives but he also led me to my great-grandfather's (X 7) gravesite! And he put together a brief history for me of the unit that my grandfather served in and all of the battles and skirmishes that they were in.
This book is a fascinating. To know that there were so many Rebel dead buried a few blocks away!!! I can't wait until he publishes his next book on POWs at Fort Delaware at the Delaware River and the companion to this book about the Northern dead!
Great work John!!!
Always your friend.
