Crane and Marines
I'm a university student at UPEI and was wondering if you know whether Stephen Crane knew any of the Marines from the Spanish-American war? Particularly Daniel Campbell, Medal of Honor recipient?
Thank-you for your time,
I have published a Civil War ancestor story that was inspired by The
Red Badge of Courage and which may be of interest. The details of the

Listed by Online Colleges as one of the best books for studying the
Civil War. (http://www.onlinecolleges.net/2012/01/09/25-books-studying-civil-war/).
After surviving long marches, low morale, and horrific battles, the
Confederates swarm over his regiment at Gettysburg on the first day of
the great battle. Now a prisoner, he faces a grueling death march
south with a defeated, angry Rebel army. Worse, a grinding,
lice-ridden death by starvation awaits him at Richmond's Belle Island
and later, the infamous Andersonville. How did he survive? A true
story about an 82nd Ohio soldier that will bring your Civil War
ancestor back to life.
Second Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Richmond (Belle
Island), and Andersonville are prominently featured in the book that
is printed and distributed by Ingram Book and Coutts Information
