Told by D. Paul Thomas
Sharing Hoosier History Through Stories Series
In collaboration with the Indiana Historical Society and Storytelling Arts of Indiana
Drawing from the 192 letters that Captain David Enoch Beem of the 14th Indiana Volunteer Regiment sent home to his wife, Mahala, in Spencer, Indiana, D. Paul Thomas brings Captain Beem’s story to life in a stirring, one-person presentation. While giving us a stunning, first-hand account of some of the greatest battles of the Civil War, Mr. Thomas reveals both the triumphs and misfortunes of Captain Beem’s life – a life of extrordinary courage, faith and steadfast duty to one’s country.
