Raves and Reviews:
Jay Winik Author of April 1865: The Month That Saved America Benson Bobrick’s Testament — the story of his Union great-grandfather in the Civil War — is part biography, part war story, part treasure trove of newly discovered letters. Testament is a carnival of voices — fresh, honest, patriotic, stoic, at times haunting, and always believable. It is a marvelous and rich addition to the Civil War field.
Jeffry D. Wert Author of Gettysburg: Day Three Testament is a gripping story of one Union soldier’s experiences in the Civil War. Benjamin “Webb” Baker’s letters are rich in details, full of patriotism, and frank about the horror and hardships. Benson Bobrick has written a compelling book.
David J. Eicher Author of The Longest Night: A Military History of the Civil War Testament by Benson Bobrick is a touching and intimate portrait of one man’s adventure during the Civil War. Rarely does a book provide such a compelling window into what war can mean to a single human being.
Frank J. Williams Chair, The Lincoln Forum From Pea Ridge to General Sherman’s march to Atlanta, “Webb” Baker marched with the 25th Illinois Regiment. His letters home form a tapestry of a soldier in war….Benson Bobrick’s superlative narrative enhances this great resource for a better understanding of our Civil War.
