September 5, 2019

Author Randy K. Stoltz of Martinsburg wrote a book, "Civil War and the Hearts of Morrisons Cove," which focuses on veterans from the Cove and their involvement in the war. The book will be made available to the public during three book signings with the author at Morrisons Cove libraries in September.

Martinsburg resident Randy K. Stoltz has been compiling a list of Civil War veterans from Morrisons Cove for many years covering the area from Williamsburg to Loysburg.

The modest list has grown from additional sources of information such as newspaper articles, church records, books, memorial services and cemetery lists to include more than 1,000 names. The names were many times accompanied by other information concerning the life of the veteran before, during and after the war. There was also information relating to how Morrisons Cove contributed to the war effort supplying men, food, animals and raw materials to help preserve the Union.

As Stoltz organized the information so he could find facts and figures relating to the war, he decided the best thing would be to incorporate them into a book. "Civil War and the Hearts of Morrisons Cove" was published in August 2019 and features the men with their involvement in the war.

The book, which lists the soldiers names and if known the rank, company, regiment, birth date, death date and cemetery, will made available to the public during three book signings with the author at Morrisons Cove libraries in September:

• 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, Martinsburg Community Library

• 3:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, Williamsburg Public Library

• 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, Roaring Spring Community Library

A special $10 price is being offered to purchase a book signed by the author with $5 of the price being donated back to each respective library. There will also be some Civil War memorabilia and pictures on display that were featured in the book for the public to observe.


The book lists the soldiers' names and if known, the rank, company, regiment, birth date, death date and cemetery of burial.
