This book is tells the story of Fernando Suhrer, who though betrothed to the lovely Eva Plotts, reluctantly enlisted in the ill-fated 107th Regiment of Ohio Infantry. Scorned as cowards by the rest of the Army and the public, the Dutchmen of the Eleventh Corps fought heroically against impossible odds, suffering tremendous casualties. It is as much of a story of love, separation, friendship and tragedy as it is a history of unsung heroes of the war.
