DESCRIPTION

As we commemorate the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the Civil War, award-winning mystery author Brendan DuBois has compiled a collection of seven of his short stories, all connected to the bloodiest conflict on American soil.

These stories include mysteries, alternative histories, and even tales of science fiction. Stories such as:

"The High Water Mark" --- A farm boy is scared out of his wits as he marches to a battle raging at a place called Gettysburg. But will his actions this historical day be the mark of a coward, or an unexpected hero?

"Gettysburg Dreams" --- A Confederate officer is preparing his troops for the upcoming battle, but one of his soldiers --- whose grandmother is skilled in the arts of voodoo --- tells him of a vision of the future, a future that is terrifying...

"Last Hours in Richmond" --- As the Union forces battle their way closer to Richmond during the last days of the war, a tired woman who runs a boarding house does what she can do to survive... even if it means breaking the law...

This unique anthology also includes:

-- Author forward and afterward

-- Publication history of each story

-- Author insight on how each story was written and published
