Cathy and I have read dozens of diaries or biographies from the Civil War era, and this one is among the most interesting of them.  It was written by a Northern soldier who survived a stay in the Andersonville, Georgia, prison camp.  He was a committed Christian, and describes,with due thanks to God, the miraculous manner in which a stream of fresh water burst forth in the prison during the scorching month of August, 1864.  The spring (which still flows today) appeared after a band of Christian prisoners had prayed, in a sustained, “pressing-in” manner, for a source of fresh water.

Like many other Civil War accounts, this book is available without cost, and can be read on one’s computer.;view=1up;seq=7
