From the Publisher"Terrific. Hough has caught the spirit of young enlisted men in the army, and has done a splendid job of research on the Twentieth Massachusetts to get its role in the Gettysburg campaign right. It is a great read."
— James M. McPherson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
"It reads as if you were there. Captures the chaos, excitement, brutality and nature of the battle as well as anyone has. It is the way I think a soldier in combat saw it."
— Scott Hartwig, Gettysburg Battlefield Historian
"Just when you think there are no new stories under the sun about the Civil War-here it comes! John Hough looks at the theme of race and the battle of Gettysburg from a strikingly different angle. Join up and go to war with these boys from the Vineyard; you won't be able to catch your breath until this fast, brilliant novel is over. Seen the Glory is an original, profound novel, with the best dialogue of the period I have ever read."
— Lee Smith, author of On Agate Hill, Fair and Tender Ladies, and Oral History
"John Hough has created a true American story, truer than our collective memory has allowed until now. For that reason it deepens our understanding of the waste and tragedy of the Civil War-and the challenge for us of living out its complicated legacy."
— Lorene Cary, author of Black Ice and The Price of a Child
