The book documents the life of Ivan Turchyn, who took part in the civil war of 1861-1865 in the U.S. He was appointed Commander of the 19th Illinois Volunteer Regiment and worked in the Technical Department of the Illinois Central Railroad, where Abraham Lincoln worked as a Corporate Attorney. In the spring of 1861, 11 southern states declared their withdrawal from the United States and began a war. In July of that year, the governor of Illinois offered Turchyn to lead the 19th Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Ivan Turchyn agreed. After the war, he worked as an emigration agent at the Central Illinois Railroad.
