Bitter Tears I Shed for Thee chronicles the remarkable stories of a handful of immigrants from Central and Eastern Europe and their impact on the history of this country during the American Civil War and the push westward. Author Mel Young, the firstborn grandson of Jewish immigrants, offers touching profiles of these extraordinary immigrants, along with personal recollections of his own family and his experiences as a first-generation American. Bitter Tears I Shed For Thee explores the forgotten stories of our country's past and urges us to preserve the stories of our ancestors.
