You review of the new verison  is so familiar to me.  It is how I felt last spring when I read the orginal verison before going on the Muster to Franklin.  It is on my list of top books I have read on any subject.  I too felt like Sam was a freind of mine by the end of the book. 

When I read the book I could not put it down.  I was laughing one minute and then crying the next.  I can't wait to get a copy of the new edition.  I have sent a request to my sister in law for the book as my Christmas present.  She came though last year with For Cause &For Country which is also an excellent book. 

We who were at the Franklin Muster were honored to have Tom Cartwright of the Carter House do a first person Sam Watkins for us the last night at the dinner.  For over an hour we had Sam with us in person talking about his four years with Company Aytch .
