Daring and Suffering: A History of the Great Railroad Adventure
This is a firsthand account of the 1862 attempt by a small group of Union soldiers to infiltrate and destroy Southern rail lines, and their subsequent time as prisoners of war. From the preface: “Myself and comrades are greatly indebted to the President and Secretary Stanton for their generous recognition of our services, and the munificent rewards bestowed upon us. To them, and to Judge Holt, Major-General Hitchcock, and James C. Wetmore, Ohio State Military Agent, we take this opportunity of expressing our heartfelt obligations.
Acknowledged as a masterpiece of materialist criticism in the English language, this collection cover topics from British literary history to George Eliot and George Orwell to inquire about the complex ways economic reality shapes the imagination.
Another to whom I am indebted is Dr. R. T. Trall of New York. At his beautiful “Hygiean Home,” on the mountain side, near Wernersville, Berks county, Pennsylvania, I regained my lost health. For his kindness, and that of his skillful assistants, Drs. Glass and Fairchild, I will ever be deeply grateful. It was with regret, woven with many pleasant memories, that I left their hospitable home when recovered health and duty called me again to the field.
