Overview

The Black Flower is the gripping story of a young Confederate rifleman from Mississippi named Bushrod Carter who serves in General John Bell Hood's Army of Tennessee during the November 1864 Civil War battle that takes place in Franklin, Tennessee. Written with reverent attention to historical accuracy, the book vividly documents the fear, suffering, and intense friendships that are all present on the eve of the battle and during its aftermath. When Bushrod is wounded in the Confederate charge, he is taken to a makeshift hospital where he comes under care of Anna, who has already lost two potential romances to battle. Bushrod and Anna's poignant attempt to forge a bond of common humanity in the midst of the pathos and horror of battle serves as a powerful reminder that the war that divided America will not vanish quietly into the pages of history.
