Four days after Confederate batteries opened fire on Fort Sumter, Dr. Bowman Breed was on a train headed south, leaving behind his wife Hannah and their four-month-old son, Isaiah. Before he left, he and Hannah vowed to write to each other every day, if even "just a line." Bowman served throughout the war, moving from the hospitals of Washington, D.C., to the shores of North Carolina and Virginia, on to guerrilla-infested Missouri and, finally, the hills of western Tennessee. During long stretches of the war, Hannah joined him in the field, giving her the perspective of both a worried wife on the home front and a correspondent from the front lines. Although they often complained of having to communicate through "the medium of these dull pens," Bowman recognized that each "precious" letter was a living piece of his beloved back home. "The touch of the hand in tracing the lines seems to leave a sort of electricity on the paper which pervades it always," he wrote from a camp outside Baltimore in late June 1861. "Did you ever come upon the handwriting of some one long since gone and have the touch of the paper thrill you with a long forgotten sensation ..." Their letters, about 1,000 in all, provide a nearly daily journal of the Civil War, told through the eyes of one Yankee couple. And, all these years later, they still have that same "electricity."

In his latest book, Kent Gramm examines the meaning of the Civil War experience in our lives and explores philosophical and personal aspects of the War that lie outside the scope of traditional historical study. He probes the meaning of Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Antietam; the lives of U. S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, O. O. Howard, and Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce; and the legacy of the unknown participant, "somebody's darling," for whom the war would come to encompass all things. The Iron Brigade appears, along with its 20th-century successor, the 32nd "Red Arrow" Division. Readers of Gramm's previous books will not be surprised to find essays that touch on Walt Whitman, John Keats, Henrik Ibsen, and Halldor Laxness, as well as such literary and religious works as the Iliad and the Bhagavad Gita. Gramm also treats more popular fare, such as the movie Gettysburg and a series of books on the ghosts of Gettysburg. In each of his subjects, Gramm finds the deep, personal significance of the profoundly universal experience of the war, as he ponders the special meaning of the Civil War in the lives of many Americans.
