This was hard to shelve as it is somewhat fictionalized in the conversations that happened but not the events. I have had the honor to see the author 2 times this year as a costumed speaker. Once as Tecumseh, an Ohio Native legend,and more recently, as Jack Skelly along with a woman who played Jennie Wade. He recited the letter that appears in this book while in character. Keep a box of tissues handy.
