Lights and Shadows Of Army Life - Gene C - 05-03-2021 08:27 PM

Written by William Lyle, an army chaplain. This book was published in 1865.

I was reading a different book, and this one was referenced. I have only skimmed a few pages, but it is very interesting. Thought some of you might be interested. Some sections are very encouraging, but some sections are heart breaking, like this one from pages 58-61 that describes a seriously injured soldier. The section is titled "The Only Son of His Mother, and She Was A Widow"

It will make you think, and appreciate your family.

I certainly love the title without having read the book. What stories were contained, I’m sure, beside the campfires and by the lights and shadows of men as the sun went down.
