Author walks
in Civil War soldier’s boots

Managing editor

It’s a journey through four years of history that many would like to forget — retracing the steps of a young Union private during the Civil War.

For semi-retired Tabor College zoologist Max Terman, it’s also 10 years of research and soul searching, resulting in his latest book, “Hiram’s Honor.”

“I wanted to know what my great-uncle Hiram (Terman) thought and felt during his time in the war,” he said.

The college professor’s interest in his ancestor and the Civil War began with his father. They had relatives who had fought with an Ohio regiment.

“My father would tell stories about Hiram,” Terman said.

Even though he never met the man, Terman had a memory of him.

After finishing his research of the soldier, Terman feels as if he has walked in the young soldier’s boots.

Visiting battlefields and sifting through pages of military records, Terman was able to follow the footsteps of his relative, from Pvt. Terman being captured at Gettysburg to being a prisoner of war at Andersonville and then being one of the lucky ones who actually made it home alive.

The Civil War was like no other war — with brother fighting against brother, Americans fighting Americans.

It was a bloody four-year war with 2.2 million Union and 1 million Confederate soldiers battling and more than 500,000 men dying.

Terman’s research began by locating where the 82nd Ohio Infantry was formed.

The National Archives and Library of Congress provided much information about the unit and the war.

Terman and his wife, Jan, located Hiram’s farm in Rome, Ohio, and discovered Hiram had married after the war, fathered two children, and lived to be 88 years old.

“I learned what an extreme experience this was,” Terman said.

The 82nd marched more than 3,000 miles.

“It is overwhelming the sacrifice they made — keeping the Union together, fighting slavery, standing up for their principles,” Terman said.

Writing the novel in first person, Terman expressed the emotions soldiers felt at the time.

Reading historic Civil War letters shed light on the soldiers’ plight.

“The letters showed different human natures,” Terman said.

Some soldiers were deeply religious and some were not, using profanity to describe conditions.

To create Hiram’s friends, Terman used combinations of personalities from actual letters.

Terman also researched those Civil War soldiers buried at Marion Cemetery.

He visited re-enactment events at Battle of Mine Creek at the Missouri/Kansas border and met with residents from the Hillsboro area.

During the annual Bruce-Crofoot Benefit Golf Tournament, played with Hillsboro and Marion teams, Terman talked with Marion resident Jeff Goering, also a Civil War enactor.

“It helped to get their perspectives,” Terman said.

The research and subsequent book was written for the ancestors of Civil War veterans — many residing in Marion County.

The 150th anniversary of the beginning of the war will be celebrated in April 2011. Terman wanted his book published before that milestone.

Terman will be the featured speaker at the Sept. 21Living in Retirement program.

“It is overwhelming the sacrifice they made — keeping the Union together, fighting slavery, standing up for their principles.”

Living Center to help train care providers

St. Luke Living Center will be host for a four-day class for area care homes in making long-term care more personal.

Person-directed care is a new, nationally recognized, model.

That allows residents to get up in the morning when they choose to, eat what and when they want, bathe when they want, and participate in outings not usually associated with nursing homes. That approach also includes decorating a nursing home to feel like a person’s own home.

The Living Center’s class, affiliated with the Grow with Evergreen Resources for Transforming Innovations (GERTI) movement in Johnson County, will be Aug. 18 though 21. For more information, contact Janet Herzet, director of aging services at the Living Center, at (620) 382-3117.

Follow the yellow brick road . . .
to the library

Marion City Library will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the film “The Wizard of Oz” during August.

Activities, games, and trivia will be offered throughout Oz week Aug. 3 through 8.

The library will show the movie at 9 p.m. Tuesday on the library lawn, weather allowing. Moviegoers should bring lawn chairs and snacks.

From 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 7, games, activities, and refreshments will be provided at an Oz party for children ages 6 to 10. Space is limited. Reservations are required. For more information, contact the library at (620) 382-2442.
