Sam Davis, Boy Hero of the Confederacy by Gary C. Walker

This is the life and times of Sam Davis. The reader is led through the true history, Southern history, about the founding of the Confederacy and into the war! Sam was born in Tennessee but this book encompasses all the theaters of the war! The people of Middle and West Tennessee were among the first to be conquered and oppressed by the United States Army. President Lincoln claimed that no states had left the Union and these were still United States citizens.

However, the Yankee invaders treated the population like Prisoners of War with only the rights their captives chose to grant them! The facts are here and so are the intense emotions. The atrocities committed against the Southern people and the deep hatred from both sides is presented in graphic detail! The readers will cringe when they are witness to the savage beatings and torture of Southern patriots!

A youthful Sam joined the 1st Tennessee Infantry and bravely fought many battles in several Confederate States. The Confederate army, aided by the loyal population, tried time and again to push the hated invaders out of Middle Tennessee, but by 1863 both sides knew that the Yankees were staying. It is not just about Tennessee citizens; it is reflective of all the states in our beloved Confederacy!

Sam lived in Middle Tennessee and through family connections he was recruited into the Confederate spy service. When his army left; Sam stayed. The reader will be swept into the world of deception and deceit that is the world of the spy. Using the most brutal and inhumane tactics Yankee counter spies decimated Sam's spy cell. Sam was arrested by Damn Yankee spies wearing Confederate uniforms.

Thus began a tug of war between a despotic and ruthless Yankee General and a determined, Christian, Confederate Soldier, Private Sam Davis. The general demanded that Sam give him names. For those names, the General would spare Sam's life! The brave Sam never flinched, nor gave an inch as he faced the stern General down. With the rope dangling before his eyes, Sam chose death over dishonor! It's a story worth telling and a story worth reading. The sublime courage and honor of a lowly Private should never be forgotten! When the readers finish this book, they will never be able to forget, Sam Davis, Boy Hero of the Confederacy!

It is 450 pages that paint the Yankee Army as it truly was; this is not the white-washed, unemotional history, you are usually subjected to! It is richly illustrated with 47 photos, 4 maps and 2 drawings!
