Great human interest mystery story from the Civil War.
The summary is as follows:
A Union soldier from a Ohio Regiment finds and takes a prayer-book off a dead Confederate soldier in an early battle in western Virginia.
The Union soldier proves to be an amazing survivor of the war!
He inscribed the prayer-book and gave it to a female acquaintance.
The prayer-book is found in an old book-case in a house built in 1915.
See the fascinating details at the link.
Thanks to Todd of the 10th Tennessee for the heads-up.
