'Himself' Underscores All Our Ancestors' Journeys

The more presentations I make of my book, HIMSELF, A CIVIL WAR VETERAN'S STRUGGLES WITH REBELS, BRITS, AND DEVILS, the more readers and commentators lead me to read further and think deeper. If I were to rewrite this historical novel, I would include episodes depicting how poorly received were Northern veterans upon returning home, how much they were forced to turn to one another to find solace and understanding for what they experienced, and what occurred nationally as a result. What I realize better too is the impact of my veteran great grandfather and great uncle on succeeding generations. It is now apparent that we lost at least a generation of progress toward the American dream because of the war and what these two men brought home with them. Some of my brothers and cousins are still dealing with the war's effects. Funny how behaviors traverse down the generations. This book helps readers to appreciate the impact of their ancestors on them. It is easy genealogical research, more than I imagined when I wrote it.
