Rick Barram is a teacher and Civil War re-enactor who lives in Red Bluff. He researched diaries, letters, and official reports to write a history of the ordinary soldier in the Civil War. Much of the book started as a series of articles for his reenacting group’s newsletter, accumulated over many years. Those articles strung together made up much of the framework for the book. There was a lot of research and reading involved, the internet as a source for information and a way to connect with people who have the information especially those back in New York. This is Part 1 of a two-part interview on the anniversary of the Battle of Antietam.
