Here is a nice story we received as an entry:
In our December issue of Libri Novus, we asked our readers to submit photos of their favorite bookshelves. This photo had an interesting story behind it:
The photo is of William Henry Forbush. He went through the war as "Furbush" --the way his name was recorded.
He served 3 years - for 14 months in the Thirteenth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, Co. K, until wounded at 2nd Bull Run, Aug 30 1862.
He spent Sept. - Dec. in the Hospital at Broad & Cherry Streets, Philadelphia.
He then finished his 3 year enlistment - transferring to the 3rd US Artillery, Battery C. He participated in the cavalry pursuit of Lee's Army after Gettysburg.
The Savas Beatie books in the photo relate to the places Forbush was involved with.
