COMPLETED!!!! The Nameless and The Faceless of the Civil War a Collection of 27 Poems and 27 Essays…April 2018. The poems are narratives, and in each poem the (narrator) is describing an actual historical event during the Civil War. Each associated essay is a further historical description. The events range from Shiloh, Fredericksburg, The Petersen House (where Lincoln died), Richard Garrett’s Farm, and many many more. In this collection it gives a voice to those who perhaps never made into the history books, a chance perhaps be heard for the very first time.
