Chapter excerpt Hiram's Honor
An excerpt from Chapter 16 of “Hiram’s Honor: Reliving Private Terman’s Civil War” by Max R. Terman. Dr. Terman’s ancestor (Private Hiram Terman, Company F, 82nd Ohio Infantry) was captured at Gettysburg July 1, 1863, survived 17 months as a prisoner at Belle Island in Richmond and Andersonville and miraculously made it home to Mansfield, Ohio in January 1865. Writing as if he were his ancestor, Max Terman reveals the conditions at Andersonville by telling of a fellow soldier’s death in March 1864, just the beginning of greater horrors to come.
