In The Shadows of Lincoln and The Civil War: Average Men in Uncommon Situations - Franklin R. Crawford. This book memorializes the forgotten deeds of a few and elevates heroic persons out of obscurity. We remember the events of January 8, 2011 near Tucson, Arizona. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot. This event is still embedded in our minds and many remember that an aide literally saved her life by providing her the proper assistance at a crucial time. Do we know who that aide was? Only those intimately close remember that it was a young intern, Daniel Hernandez Jr., a hero for doing what needed to be done when it needed to be done. The President, in an address on January 12, recognized Hernandez during his presentation and all present applauded loud and long. Millions witnessed the event from visual media. All were so proud. Do we still recall his name now, just a few years later?

“You have another winner – learned much more than I knew before.” Edwin C. Bearss, - National Park Service Chief Historian Emeritus

“In my opinion, this new book will appeal to dedicated older readers with a vast knowledge of the war, who will learn much they did not know, as I did. It should also appeal to a younger audience whose reading experience deals more with short, individual pieces.” Duane Schultz – author of Quantrill’s War & The Dahlgren Affair

“Crawford is among the rare individuals who finds an untold story and tells it in a compelling way. Impeccable research and writing style combine to present little known accounts of remarkable soldiers. Each tale is a story worth telling and each figure is someone worthy of recognition. Frank rescues these from an ill-deserved obscurity.” Rob Girardi – author of Campaigning With Uncle Billy and The Memoirs of Brigadier General William Passmore Carlin. 2014, 5½x8½, paper, index, 374 pp.
