Re: [civilwarwest] Ohioans in the Civil War
Hi Mr Bissland !
I want to thank you for this information regarding your work on Civil War, your book looks to me very interesting and I'm planning to ge it also, as a Cuban-American I feel strongly concern abaut what happened during those tragic years of 1861-65 to the American families and non americans like the Cubans living in this country and wht they did :
www.latinamericanstudies.org then click ; Cubans in the U.S. Civil War ( 1861-65 )
One of them was a Confederate General Ambrosio Jose Gonzales, good friend of Gen G.P.T. Beauregard, and the Officer in charge of the Department of Artillery for the States of S.Carolina, N. Carolina, Georgia and Florida .
Your humble servant .

Ohio rather than the vindictive writings of Col. Thomas Worthington.
He was cashiered by Sherman, only to have it reversed as a result of
his political connections. If only Brig. General Charles Walcutt had
written the regiment's biography, for he truly was a leader where
Worthington was nothing but a bragging know-it-all. For example,
Worthington described Col Stephen Hicks of the 40th Illinois as an
illiterate bumbling fool, whereas Hicks was a well known lawyer in
Illinois that practice law along with Lincoln. Hardly an individual
that was illiterate. The 46th deserves better than Worthington.
