Do You Have Trouble Getting Your Kids to Read History Because They Say It Is Boring?…


A Voice From the Grave Audio

How many of us sat in your history class and held our eyes open with toothpicks because the class was so boring. So many dates, name, places, battles, and blah, blah – blah- Snore!
Well I decided to make at least part of history fun to read. How many of you know about Andersonville, Ga? I thought so. How many of you know about Andersonville Prison? Again, I thought so.
So before I tell you about the fun part here is a mini history lesson.

Andersonville, Ga. is located in south west Georgia. During the war of Northern Agression is was at the end of the railline which provided supplies and transportation for both the north and south. The decision was made by the powers that be to build a prisoner of war camp in Georgia becasue the prison in Virginia was overflowing, winter was approaching and there was no place to put anymore men. There was no way to keep the men warm during the winter that far north.
The ideal place was Andersonville. It was at the end of the rail line it was away from the fighting and the weather was not that harsh. However, they didn’t count on the seasonal rains, the mud, the lack of water, the destruction of the rail lines and supply trains or that Sherman would make his march to the sea destroying everything including crops, rail lines, supply trains and lives including those of his own army.
My release A Voice From the Grave takes the reader on a historic ride through the Battle of Chickamaga, the decision to make Andersonville the site of the worst prison camp of the south, and the men who were involved. However, the story is told with a twist. The history is factual down to the buttons and belt buckles of the union soliders.
The plot is fiction- but it could have happened. The setting of the story is factual, Andersonville does exist as does the musuem, the visitor center and the curator of the museum.

This book is exciting- and a learning experience one that will stay with the reader once they have turned the last page. It will soon be available in Audio
