T.M. Jacobs talked about his book Almost Home: the 1864 Diary of Sergeant Samuel E. Gorsvenor, a transcription of Grosvenor’s diary from his time with the 16th Regiment, Company B, as they were encamped at Plymouth, North Carolina, taken by the Confederate Army and then imprisoned at Andersonville. Throughout the diary is a narrative compiled from other sources to shed more light on the events that Grosvenor discussed.
