The late Senator Benjamin Miller of Fryeburg, Maine predicted the nation would fight a civil war over the divisive issue of slavery. Could he have predicted what would become of two grandsons, a great-grandson and a dear family friend?
When these four young men enlisted to fight to preserve the union, they did not envision the horrors of war. The Battle of Gettysburg changed the lives of these soldiers forever. One lost a leg, another his freedom. One lost his life and another his soul.
The adversity encountered after the battle by these soldiers, their families in Fryeburg and the citizens of Gettysburg tests their fortitude and faith.
Gettysburg is over. Now the real battle has begun!
