Book "The Ledger" By Paul Tick

The Ledger

The Ledger by Paul Tick


What was life in rural America in 1861? How much did a pound of beef cost? What was the going wage for a mill worker? What did people do for entertainment? Living in modern times loses sight of how people subsisted back then; it was a different way of life. The author attempt to recreate that time in his book. The country was being torn apart by slavery, and when the Southern States seceded, it had repercussions throughout the North and South land.

Perry’s Corners was a small upstate New York village that supplied boards for shipbuilding. How did the fervor of patriotism echo throughout the town? Four men meet daily at Patrick O’Leery’s Mercantile store for coffee to discuss the impact of that war, while Patrick O’leery records the happenings by writing notes in the margins of his sales journal. These would be a grim reminder for future generations of the turmoil engulfing America. Many of the town’s men would answer President Lincoln’s call for volunteers to put down the rebellion, and they would write home about army life and its hardships. Some wouldn’t come back; some would be affected long after the hostilities ended. It was the worst of times for America. Somehow the people of Perry’s Corners survived, but not without the repercussions that even a faraway war can bring.
