Webmaster's Note: Tallmans In The Civil War is a short book by Jon L. Tallman in which he tells the stories of the service and sacrifice of some members of his family tree. The author includes not only a brief history of his great-grandfather's service, but also stories about thirteen of his great-grandfather's cousins and in-laws.
Some of these men were wounded in the war, and some died in the war. The family was represented at the great battles of Shiloh, Chancellorsville, Antietam, Gettysburg, and many more.
Mr. Tallman has done a great job of researching his family's history, and compiling such an interesting collection of stories. We hope you enjoy this brief glimpse of one family's service during the war, and we want to thank Mr. Tallman for being kind enough to share his hard work with our readers.
Jon was also kind enough to share the story of his wife's great-grandfather as well. Not only did George Murray Brown serve in the Civil War, but he was also the last Sheriff in the state of Ohio to oversee a public hanging.
