The amazing true story of Washington County Pennsylvania’s forgotten Civil War hero and his incredible extended family. A.G. Happer found himself not only a part of most of the major battles in the eastern theater as a Lieutenant in the famous 11th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, The “Bloody Eleventh,” he was in the hottest spots on most of those battlefields. Second Manassas, Second Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, The Wilderness and more! Twice wounded, left for dead on the battlefield, rescued by a slave, suffering as a prisoner of war, barely alive, he persevered to survive. Chosen by the Governor to ride with the slain President Lincoln on the Lincoln funeral train through Pennsylvania. Then, with his service to his country at an end, he began his service to his community. Read along as he and his family help build a county, a state, and a nation.
