Overview
Sergeant Dave Parker and his sergeant major, John Dexter, are two wounded Civil War soldiers who've been discharged from the army due to the severity of their wounds they sustained on the battlefield. The two travel together by horseback to their home town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Along the way, they have many run-ins with blood-thirsty bandits looking to steal their horses and anything else they have of value. Read how the two persevere to rebuild their lives despite their limited abilities during a war-torn era where many able-bodied men didn't survive. Mildred Hamming lost her husband, Major John Hamming, during the Civil War. She and her sister had inherited their parent's farm when they passed away, and the two of them were struggling to keep the farm from being sold at the tax sales. Before Mildred's husband had been killed, he sent two of his wounded officers to help out the women run the farm since neither of them had any place to go after being discharged. Learn of the struggles and hardships that eventually helped transform the struggling family farm into a safe haven for other wounded veterans, orphans, and widows.

About the author
My home was in Hungary before the war. I came to the United States in 1947 and settled in Ohio. I had an uncle who lived there. I joined the army as soon as I was old enough to enlist. The Korean War was going on at the time. I studied for my citizenship while in the serivce and became a U.S. citizen. When I was discharged, I was a sergeant first class. I shipped out from the West Coast and sailed on tramp ships all over the world. When I became a captain, I sailed in the Pacific Ocean, Japan, Korea, South China Sea, Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietman, Sinapore, and the Gulf of Siam. I also became a pilot in the Panama Canal. I went back to sea where I worked six months on and six months off. During my six months off, I ranched in Utah raising horses, cattle, and sheep. While I was at sea, my mother managed my ranch and personal affairs. At sea, I had a lot of free time. When the weather was good I spent my time writing stories. I started doing this while I was working in Panama too. My stories were mostly written about the Civil War and events that happened after the war had ended. All my writing was in pure English. Now in retirement, I am trying to rewrite them and have them published. I have written over 28 books over the years and I hope you will enjoy them.
