A century and a half later, his great-great-granddaughter Geneva Lindner and her husband follow his Civil War trail through Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Geneva sets out to trace his life from birth through the Civil War and, finally, to his death, and the grave marker that was meant for someone else. In a book that intertwines family history and the history of the United States, Geneva’s comprehensive research collects together missing pieces and lost records to form the story of a forgotten life.
