Pastor Recounts Ancestor’s Incredible Military Career through Wonderful Biography

The biography relives the admirable life of Colonel Tobias B. Kaufman as a soldier, and his life after the battles he had fought.

Greenwood SC – WEBWIRE

Countless heroes took part in the Civil War. One of them is Colonel Tobias B. Kaufman.

Doug Kauffmann’s childhood memories include his parents telling him about his great grandfather Colonel Tobias B. Kaufman. In his early thirties, Doug found a wooden box previously owned by Colonel Kaufman. This and a series of events connected to his great grandfather prompted the creation of a memoir. Having known a great deal of his great ancestor’s life, Doug felt the desire to share his story.

Colonel Tobias B. Kaufman was a brave and strong fighter born with an inherent skill to lead his men. He rose from a Private to a well-deserved position as a Colonel during the war, proving his outstanding abilities, and was one of the courageous fighters who fought in some fifteen major battles including Glendale, Second Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg, The Wilderness, and Spotsylvania. The biography not only tells of Colonel Kaufman’s life in the war but also features his life after the conflict, particularly the heartwarming story of the return of his pistol. It is a highly appealing book that recounts a true and beautiful story of a man considered to be “one of the most illustrious of the Civil War heroes of Central Pennsylvania” by the well-known Pennsylvania Civil War soldier and author, J. Howard Wert. The book also includes a few rich descriptions of what the Colonel faced in the war. Truly, a great piece worth indulging into during one’s lazy, laidback days.

“Tobias’s Story: The Life and Civil War Career of Tobias B. Kaufman” will be displayed in the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Intl Book Fair happening on October 11, 2017. Save the date and grab a copy.
