this is the story of the Kimberlin family from Scott County, Indiana, that sent 33 fathers and sons, brothers and cousins, to fight for the Union during the Civil War. Ten family members were killed, wounded or died of battlefield disease, a 30-percent casualty rate that is unmatched in recorded Scott County history. Their feelings about the war come from 40 letters to and from the battlefield that have survived.
