Hiram’s Hope Program

7:00 pmto8:00 pm

  Hiram's Hope 

Tuesday, March 17 at 7:00 p.m., author Max Terman, Hillsboro resident and a retired science professor at Tabor College, will present a program on his newest book Hiram’s Hope. Following in the footsteps of Hiram’s Honor, one of Online College’s Best Books for Studying the Civil War, Hiram’s Hope tells how Isaiah, left for dead at Andersonville, survives only to board the ill-fated, over-loaded steamer Sultana. Max Terman weaves a story around this tragedy with the Lincoln Funeral Train, and a veteran’s struggle to recover his life as threads in an intricate tale about the last days of the American Civil War.   

The book is based on the true story of Terman’s great-uncle Hiram, chronicling his exploits from an idealistic military volunteer to survivor of the battles of Second Bull Run, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. 

*Terman will have books available to buy and will be autographed by him.
