Untold Stories of the Greatest American War, Unveiled
Historian and writer, Richard Lytle, shares the story of Ninth Regiment of the Michigan Volunteer Infantry.
“This is the story of the Civil War experiences of the officers and men who formed the Ninth Regiment of the Michigan Volunteer Infantry. They served in the mid-western theater of war from 1861 to 1865. The tale is made more interesting by the true story of romance between the commander of the regiment and a girl in middle Tennessee during the worst conflicts in the region”.
Keep the stories of the past alive. That is the main goal of most historians and historical writers. These people believe that history will never be dead as long as we keep on reminiscing what has happened before us. And what do they usually do? They research and constantly dig for knowledge about the interesting period. And that’s how Richard Lytle’s book entitled Love, War and the Ninth Michigan Volunteers started.
As an effort to return the civil war readers to a more personal identity with the men and women of the war, Richard began by focusing solely on a specific group of men. They are the boys and men in the rank and file of Company B of the Ninth Michigan Volunteer Infantry Regiment.
But as the author dug deeper, it became apparent that their story must be told as part of a larger narrative. There are other things that have to be included in order to tell the whole story.
When asked what the book is all about, Richard said, “This is the story of the Civil War experiences of the officers and men who formed the Ninth Regiment of the Michigan Volunteer Infantry. They served in the mid-western theater of war from 1861 to 1865. The tale is made more interesting by the true story of romance between the commander of the regiment and a girl in middle Tennessee during the worst conflicts in the region”.
Re-enactments are not the only way to learn about the past. If you want to gain knowledge about the greatest conflict in the American history, you can just read books like Love, War and the Ninth Michigan Volunteer. As you leaf through the pages of the book, you will be immersed to every character’s life as they fought to bring back the peace and unity of the nation.
