    “It’s a history book for people who didn’t like history class in school,” he said. “It’s history taught a different way, by the people who were there. My book tells the reader what it was like to fight in a Civil War battle or be trapped in the Sierra Nevada Mountains for the winter. Every story has a central character from Indiana.”
