|Full Name||Bill Sherman|
|Portrayed By||Josh Hutcherson|
|Place of Birth||St. Louis, MO|
|Date of Birth||June 1, 1837|
Medium height, light skin, dark brown hair, square jaw, callused hands. Bill is dressed in a light blue short sleeve shirt, together with light brown pants and a vest.
Bill was raised in St. Louis, Missouri, his parents immigrating from Ireland when he was a small child. Always better with his muscles than his brains - not that he was a fool, mind, just average in that regard - he worked as a carpenter there for a few years.
Calling him successful would have been a stretch, though. He was skilled enough, but so were plenty of others; and while the city was growing, the war was already hurting it. It was bad enough seeing some of his friends affected; what if he'd had a brother or sister to risk getting hurt, or what if things got desperate enough that they needed to draft him? He moved to Grimwood to put some more distance between himself and all that, promising to arrange the same for his parents once he got established.
Curious, talkative, friendly. Sheltered, perhaps, and so what? Tries to be a bit fancy with his words. Hopefully he'll find a wife at some point.
He believes that slavery ought to be abolished, but also that the government ought to offer more assistance with the financial transition; letting a plantation fail helps neither the owners nor the workers.
