A Thousand May Fall: Life, Death, And Survival In The Union Army
- American History, Civil War
The Civil War through the eyes of immigrants
The Civil War ended more than 150 years ago, yet our nation remains fiercely divided over its enduring legacies. In A Thousand May Fall, Brian Matthew Jordan returns us to the war itself, bringing us closer than perhaps any prior historian to the chaos of battle. At the heart of Jordan’s account is the 107th Ohio Volunteer Infantry. Most of the men were ethnic Germans, set apart by language and identity. In fact, one quarter of the Union army was foreign born, with 200,000 native Germans alone fighting to save their adopted homeland.
Based on new research, including diaries, letters, and unpublished memoirs, A Thousand May Fall is a pioneering history that restores the common man and the immigrant striver to the center of the Civil War.
