Vividly depicting life both on the battlefield and at the home front during the Civil War, "Love and Valor" is a priceless collection of letters exchanged between Captain Jacob Ritner and his wife Emeline. While Jacob recounts all the battles he fought in compelling detail, Emeline movingly records the lives of those left behind to raise families and manage farms in their husbands' absence. "Love and Valor" is also the story of a family of Iowa abolitionists who help to make this book a must read.
