PURE HEART:The Faith of a Father and Son in the War for a More Perfect Union by William F. Quigley Jr.
This is the story of a father and son overlooked in history but praised in their day as exceptional American heroes. Their patriotism and principled tact amid fiery partisanship, racial bigotry, and civil war are lessons for our own time.
