Historian Henry Howe traveled to every county in the state of Ohio in 1886, more than 20 years after the end of the Civil War, but he found the war was still vivid in the memory of many he spoke with. Scattered through his huge Ohio history are many tales of Civil War, some of which are little known outside these century-old volumes. We have extracted some of these tales and put them in this new 72-page illustrated booklet called: "Ohio's Forgotten Episodes of the Civil War." These tales have been compiled from Howe's huge two-volume work: Historical Collections of Ohio. The booklet is printed on 8.5" x 11" 60# paper. The front cover is protected by a vinyl sheet. Included are: The War Experiences of Major N. Bostwick Lingering Wounds and Remarkable Incidents Soldiers' Reunion Patriotic Poetry and a Literary Curiosity The Soldier's Creed Drummer Boys Prison on Johnson's Island John Morgan's Raid An Ohio Connection with Andrews' Raid Cincinnati in the War A Conversation between Rebels and Yanks Lucy Webb Hayes Clement Vallandigham Ohio's Work in the Sanitary Commission This is one of three new Civil War booklets on Ohio that we have compiled largely from Henry Howe's invaluable work. The other two "Paving the Way for Freedom -- Ohio Before the Civil War" and "Ohio: Leading the Yankees to Victory in the Civil War" are also available,
