From the publisher:
This book is a compilation of the letters around the Civil War by Edmond D Potter and his wife Emiline S Bernard Potter. My grandfather was one of the men who responded to President Lincoln's call to defend the Union. American loyalty leaped into instant action. Little did the country know that this war would be a tragedy in American history, yet it was a war that had to be fought.
