Author, Amy Bauer, was raised on an island outside of Savannah, Georgia where she learned to appreciate and value history. The rich historic roots of Savannah exposed her to the work of genealogy and has kept her intrigued enough to have worked in the field for thirty years. One of the more fascinating subjects she and Jay Bauer have studied extensively involves the army of William T. Sherman. Amy and Jay have researched the many files and pension records of the men of the 135th United States Colored Troop founded and formed under Sherman’s leadership.
Through the author’s life, years of study and research (as well as a determination to uncover untold or forgotten stories), they have created a fictional, true-to-life story contained herein. This book shows how learning a family’s genealogy can change a family story; or, introduce you to one that you never knew existed.
