About this Item

"For two years after the {Civil} war when he {Charles Hazelwood Word, the author's grandfather} tried, almost single-handedly, to restore some order to the chaos and destruction to their home and lands suffered at the hands of the Yankees, and their subsequent move to Texas are rich with details and stories we will never hear. In this narrative I hope to avoid any similar lack of interesting detail without going overboard the other way.Another strong incentive came from my children, who over the years heard snatches of wild war stories, out of any chronological sequence, and providing no real idea of the overall experience of World War II. I wanted to provide them, and those following them who might have any interest, with a straightforward account from a man in a front row seat of what I consider to be one of the most interesting and important periods of our history.A third reason to take on this labor {and it has been a considerable labor} was my distress at the younger generation's lack of regard, sensitivity, or knowledge concerning our history and traditions." This book has 174 pages and is illustrated throughout. The book is a SIGNED AND DATED PRESENTATION copy from the author, McGehee Word. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this SCARCE title. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 064899
