Quotes

As O James Lighthizer, president of the Civil War Trust, writes in the book's foreword: "For far too long, their story has gone largely untold. In [Price's book], these brave soldiers have finally received a testament worthy of their valor – a recognition in ink for their brave deeds on the field."
