Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations
By Henry Frederick Cathcart
“Dad”, son of a Union Civil War soldier, and one of nine children, was born in 1872 on a farm on the great plains of Nebraska. Although Dad was born to be a farmer, he always had an insatiable desire for travel and adventure.
“Dad’s Reminiscences Reveries and Ruminations” was written in 1918 By Henry Frederick Cathcart (“Dad”) while stationed in France during World War one, where he served as a Mess Sergeant. It was there where he acquired the nick-name “Dad” because he was so much older than most of his fellow soldiers.
First published in 1919, “Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” includes Dad’s memoirs from early childhood on the Nebraska farm to his Army days in France. They are full of adventure, romance, and tales of sad and happy days from farm life to war in stories told mostly in poetry form that are all true, and give the reader a glimpse into the life of a plain-spoken but gifted storyteller nick-named “Dad”.
From an historical standpoint,”Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” shows insight into the first-hand experience, background, and personal life of a WW One soldier who joined the fray at a time when “doing my bit” was considered an admirable undertaking, as it still is for today’s soldier.
