Our Country's Fiery Ordeal

A blog about the American Civil War, written and maintained by historian Daniel J. Vermilya, author of The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain (History Press, 2014) and James Garfield and the Civil War (History Press, 2015)

Dedicated to my great-great-great grandfather, Private Ellwood Rodebaugh, Company D, 106th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, killed at the Battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862.

"And may an Overuling Providence continue to cause good to come out of evil, justice to be done to all men where injustice has long prevailed, and finally, peace, quiet, and harmony to come out of this terrible confrontation and our country's fiery ordeal." -- Albert Champlin, 105th Ohio, Diary entry of June 19, 1864 (Western Reserve Historical Society)

One Month To Go...

Just wanted to let everyone know that the official publication date for my book on Kennesaw Mountain is April 8, 2014, meaning that as of today, there is one month to go before my first book is published!

After many months of hard work, this is very exciting, and I am looking forward to having my own book sitting on my bookshelf next to so many others which I have read for so many years.

For those who are interested, The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain is currently available for pre-order from Amazon and The History Press.

Hope you enjoy the book!
