1 WOODFORD, Frank B FATHER ABRAHAM'S CHILDREN. Michigan Episodes in the Civil War
Detroit Wayne State University Press 1961 First Edition Hardcover VG VG 
xiv+305pp+illus. Dust-jacket little dusty. Inscript. to endpaper. Between the fateful morning at Charleston in 1861 and the mustering out of the 1st Michigan Cavalry at Salt Lake City in 1866, Michigan bore a heavy burden on the field and at home. She had her heroes and her scoundrels; her generals and her drummer boys; her tragic and comic figures. This volume is a collection of anecdotes and legend, a retelling of stories and reminiscences culled from a wide variety of written sources and from personal interviews with Civil War veterans. Among the many episodes recounted are Michigan's participation in the Underground Railway; Sarah Emma Edmonds, alias Private Franklin Thompson; The Michigan Cavalry's exploits under George Custer; the disaster of the 1st Michigan at Bull Run; Michigan's Medical Services and the origin of Harper Hospital; the Detroit Riot of 1863; the nightmare explosion of the steamer Sultana with a death toll of 1200 soldiers on their way home from Confederate prisons, and much more.
