Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many Oregonians think of the Civil War as a faraway event or something that happens when the Ducks and the Beavers tangle. Few know that the state raised two Union regiments or that more than ten thousand Union and Confederate veterans made their way to Oregon after the war. In fact, the Beaver State has impressive Civil War ties, including the battle death of Senator Edward Baker, the Long Tom Rebellion in Eugene and famous figures like U.S. Marshal Virgil Earp. Join Civil War enthusiast Randol B. Fletcher as he explores the tales behind the monuments and graves that dot today's landscape and unearths the Hidden History of Civil War Oregon.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing from articles he wrote for Oregon Magazine, Fletcher narrates the military stories of Oregon residents who volunteered for either side of the Civil War and prominent veterans who moved to Oregon after the war. The book deserves consideration by all Oregon high school and public libraries, as it includes a particularly interesting story revealing why and where Virgil Earp is buried in the Rose City. B&w photos are provided but no index. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
