Civil War Group Brings Lost Diary to Publication

Civil War Group Brings Lost Diary to Publication

April 1, 2017 

Book review and signing to take place at Longview Mansion on Wednesday, April 5th from 6-8:30 p.m. and Whistle Stop on Saturday, April 8 from 1-3 p.m. 

For the past six years, our little Civil War Group of Siena at Longview residents was involved in the development and publication of the authentic Civil War diary of Charles Adam Wetherbee - "My Life In The Civil War 1861 - 1864." 

The Siena Civil War study group, which was started in 2011, was focused around this diary, a copy of which was found by Ken and Mary Gray on a closet shelf in their newly purchased home in Lawrence, Kansas in 1961; Ken Gray shared this gem with our group. 

Our group would follow the writings of the diary of Charles Adam Wetherbee by comparing his detailed events along with the descriptive findings of Shelby Foote's Civil War books. Our group financed the legal aspects of ownership of the diary and engaged the historical expertise of David W. Carter, Ph.D., to further dissect and certify the content of this Civil War diary. After our group met with Dr. Carter at the Whistle Stop Coffee and Mercantile in Lee's Summit, and he handled the diary and read a few verses, he agreed to take on the daunting task of transforming the diary into the unforgettable book title "UnHoly Rebellion."

We hope you will come out and celebrate this new publication on Wednesday, April 5 from 6-8:30 p.m. and explore the labor of togetherness that was embellished into the creation of this compelling book.
Dr. David W. Carter will be present for the event and signing. 

Another event will be held at Whistle Stop Coffee and Mercantile (227 SE Main Street) on Saturday, April 8 from 1-3 p.m.
