In the 1960s - a hundred years after the American Civil War began - Ken and Mary Gray moved into their new home on Louisiana Street in Lawrence. And it was there that they made an amazing discovery. They found the discarded Civil War diary of Charles Adam Wetherbee, a Union soldier. Now, that diary has finally been published. It appears in the new book Unholy Rebellion, by Topeka author David W. Carter. KPR's J. Schafer spoke to him about the diary and about Charles Wetherbee, the soldier who wrote it.
That's Topeka-based author, veteran and military historian David W. Carter. He was speaking with KPR's J. Schafer about the new book Unholy Rebellion. The book includes the diary of a Civil War soldier, which was discovered in Lawrence.
Carter is also the author of the best-selling and critically-acclaimed book Mayday Over Wichita, which details the worst military aviation disaster in Kansas history.
