Overview

On April 6 and 7, 1862, 23,000 men were killed or maimed at an obscure post on the Tennessee River known as Pittsburg Landing. This is the story of two of those men; their bravery, their loves and their loss.

Will Moore is a 42-year-old West Point graduate and veteran of the Mexican War. Although desperately opposed to a conflict pitting American against American, he volunteers and goes to Indiana to train his troops. There he is reacquainted with the family of an old friend. Will hasn't seen the daughter in 10 years, since he taught "little Sarah" to jump her horse. She is now 22, a skilled surgical assistant, beautiful and determined. Will is twice her age and still suffering from the loss of his wife and child to a fever epidemic 20 years earlier. Yet, he finds himself falling in love, a romance Sarah unashamedly pursues. They marry 10 days before he is called to the front. Believing she will never see her husband again, Sarah joins a surgical unit and arrives at the end of the first day of battle.

Amos Bingham is also a veteran of the Mexican War where he single handedly killed 34 men in one bloody night. He has sworn to never kill again. He refuses to join the fighting, causing his Alabama neighbors and his 14-year-old son, Noah, to brand him a coward. Noah runs away to join the army and Amos rushes to save him. He vows to destroy everything that gets in his way, no matter the color of the uniform.

They all meet at a terrible place called Pittsburg Landing. Although a work of historical fiction, the characters and events in this book are based on fact.

Meet the Author

Born in the hills of North Carolina, where tales of the past were kept wildly alive by an extended family of storytellers, Robert Burns Clark knows a thing or two himself about telling a story. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the School of Law, Clark made a movie called Moonrunners, and shortly after, moved his family to California to continue his writing pursuits. A few years later Moonrunners was adapted into the Dukes of Hazzard television series.

Clark has written, re-written or edited over forty episodes for prime time television including: “The Dukes of Hazzard,” “Tour of Duty,” “The Class of ’61,” and “Hardball,” and written and produced several movies of the week.
Robert Burns Clark lives in Manhattan Beach, California, where he is presently writing a modern-day story of piracy that will be finished this year.

    A well-written novel about the futility of war - especially a war fought with such close family ties on both sides of the conflict. Amos Bingham, having been through the Mexican War, now is on a mission to rescue his young idealistic son who is quickly learning that war isn't the romantic glorified undertaking he first believed.

    THIS IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS YOU COULD NOT PUT DOWN!

    I love historical fiction and this is one of the best I've read recently. This is a story told from both sides of the Civil War and it's filled with characters you would not expect to find together in an epic tale of love and war. The book is historically accurate in it the facts of the war.

    I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Civil War or to anyone who loves a good story told through the lives of great characters.
