“Union Bound” is a story of honor, integrity, love of country and the belief that all men are equal. It’s all based on the actual diaries of Union soldier Joseph Hoover. It’s the story of how Sgt. Hoover came to join the Union army only to become captured during the Battle of the Wilderness and taken to the dreaded Andersonville prison in Georgia, where he was held for four long months before being transferred to the Florence Stockade in South Carolina. Shortly after arriving in Florence, Hoover escaped and was helped by the very slaves he fought to free as they helped him travel the Underground Railroad back to his company in the north.

A companion book by WND Books, “Union Bound: He Went to War to Free the Slaves But Was Freed by Them,” is now available for purchase.

The movie delves into matters of integrity, honor and redemption. In a time of racial division like the country hasn’t seen in 60 years and weak leaders who are willing to compromise the principles and values the nation was founded on to appease an enemy hell-bent on killing anyone who disagrees with them, “Union Bound” is a powerful story of one man who understood what slavery is all about and who risked everything to do the right thing, to save his country and to free slaves. It is a story of compassion, resolve and unity against a common evil. It is a story of our past to encourage us to be resolute today.

After the war, Hoover went back to his farm in upstate New York and worked as a cabinetmaker. He went on to live to be 84 years old.
