By: Don C. Burns
This is a Civil War tale of a young man who deserted the South and fought for the North.
Don Burns tells the story of his great-great Uncle Ransom, born in the South, raised and educated by school, church and people with whom he fundamentally disagreed.
This is Ransom’s story as he struggled to come to terms with a country and family divided, and all the fears, indignation and even hatred stoked by a desire to preserve an antebellum way of life versus a nation’s growing plea to end slavery.
