Overview

The true story of one man's reluctant but relentless war against the invaders of his country.A quiet, wealthy plantation owner, Jack Hinson watched the start of the Civil War with disinterest. Opposed to secession and a friend to Union and Confederate commanders alike, he did not want a war. After Union soldiers seized and murdered his sons, placing their decapitated heads on the gateposts of his estate, Hinson could remain indifferent no longer. He commissioned a special rifle for long-range accuracy, he took to the woods, and he set out for revenge. This remarkable biography presents the story of Jack Hinson, a lone Confederate sniper who, at the age of 57, waged a personal war on Grant's army and navy. The result of 15 years of scholarship, this meticulously researched and beautifully written work is the only account of Hinson's life ever recorded and involves an unbelievable cast of characters, including the Earp brothers, Jesse James, and Nathan Bedford Forrest.

    Highly recommend

    This book is so much more than a story of revenge. It gives great insight into conditions leading up to, during, and after the war. Shows why the war was not just about ending slavery ( on both sides). Reading what both sides did makes it hard to use the term civil when referring to the war.
    I highly recommend reading it. It will make you think about what you learned in school about the war and the South's way of life.
    Also is pretty amazing to see what one can accomplish with the right motivation!

    Great Read

    True story of one man's revenge against Union forces which killed two of his sons. This tragedy perfectly exemplifies what can and does happen during war. It is well written and compelling. A story you will think about long after you have finished reading it.
