ORDINARY PEOPLE, EXTRAORDINARY LIVES: The American Story
They didn't yearn for a better life like many others, so much as they yearned for a different life.
There are many biographies and accounts of individuals who fought in the Civil War, who went west to mine for silver, who piloted boats on the Erie Canal, who migrated west to become photographers, businessmen and adventurers. However, within the pages of this book is the story of three men who, collectively, were all of these: William Sayre Gramesly, Charles Gramesly and Henry Gramesly, father and sons. It is an intriguing portrait of their endowment, our inheritance - the accounts of these ordinary men told through the journal and letters they left behind.
Richard and his wife Catherine Reasor Stickann
