Preview: Larry B. Bramble, “For Liberty”

23 01 2012

Larry B. Bramble’s For Liberty is billed as “my ancestor’s story of immigration and the Civil War.” Bramble examines his great-great-granfather’s (and various other relatives’) move from Europe to the United States and his experiences as a Union soldier during the Civil War. In doing so he tells a larger story of immigrants and there experiences not only in the war but in becoming a part of, and shaping, a new society. The bulk of the book deals with the war, with engagements spanning the conflict from beginning to end and from theater to theater, and focusing on the actions of the regiments in which members of Bramble’s family served.
