Description
 

by Ken Hechler

Ken Hechler, through the period letters of his ancestors, George and John Hechler, fives a vivid account of the 36th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War and the trials and tribulations fo the two men. From camp life at Parkersburg and Summersville, to the bloody battlefields of Lewisburg, Antietam, Chickamauga, and others, the 36th regiment served valiantly, described here in detail by the Hechler boys. Partially printed in a series of articles in the Parkersburg News in 1962, this is the first time these letters have been printed in their entirety.
