LOST SOUL is a Yankees fight for a Rebels dignity. Researcher and author Les Rolston encountered the curious unmarked grave of a Confederate soldier in Rhode Island in the early 1990s. Rolston didnt know that his quest to identify the unknown soldier would take him on a journey through time. The record of Samuel Postlethwaite had been lost over the past century, but Rolston, through tireless research found Sam and discovered how the Mississippi soldier came to rest in New England. Ultimately, Sam received an honorable burial -- becomming the only known Confederate to be buried in Rhode Island.

Rolston relates Sams life and times as a young Confederate soldier in the 21st Mississippi Infantry, in context with the history of two families -- the Greenes from Rhode Island and the Postlethwaites from Mississippi. He gives detailed accounts of how individuals from each family were involved in the Civil War, and how these former enemies became family. Combining an impressive amount of research with a compelling story line, Rolstons book is a must read for any Civil War enthusiast or family historian.
