Gettysburg: a novel
Thus begins Gettysburg, the newest addition to The Civil War Battle Series, the Brannon family saga that has been praised as robust, detail-rich and well-paced...equal parts pathos and accuracy"" (Publishers Weekly) and ""fraught with passion, tension, and tenderness"" (Booklist).
Will and Mac, the two eldest Brannon sons, are in the ranks of the Stonewall Brigade and Jeb Stuart's cavalry. A short bivouac allows them to visit the family farm for some rest and recuperation from the fighting. Almost as soon as Will rejoins his company, Jackson's former corps marches up the Shenandoah Valley, sweeping the Union troops out of Winchester. A natural route to the North lies open, and Lee's army heads in that direction.
The eventual clash known as the battle of Gettysburg occupies the rest of the book. Will, who is involved from the first day, is kept in the thick of the combat around Culp's Hill and the right side of the Union line. Mac arrives on the evening of the second day, and he sees action with the Southern cavalry at Hanover. Both are swallowed up in the melee of the fighting, and neither emerges unscathed.
Bruised and bleeding, the Confederate army stumbles back into Virginia, leaving a fourth of their number behind on the Pennsylvania ground. News of the defeat and the huge number of casualties spreads quickly. Like thousands of families acrossthe South, the Brannon clan in Culpeper County anxiously awaits word of the fates of two sons.""
