Although this book is short and a quick read, the characters are well-developed. I felt such empathy and compassion for these boys who, at such a young age, are already so old. The horrors of death and dying are painstakingly realistic. I recommend this book to any Civil War buff (or to any war-era buff)!

Anyone who wants to experience on a personal level the heat of a Civil War battle and, especially, its aftermath, needs to read this novel. I fell in love at first read with the main character, and stayed riveted till the end to find out what happened to him. Mr. Bahr's descriptions put the reader in the middle of the action-he relates what the characters are experiencing to images we have all had in our lifetimes. I can't wait to read his next novel, The Year of Jubilo, and then his work in progress. Expect to see this author mentioned in the New York Times book review soon.

I've read the facts, visited the battlefields, and seen the reenactments, but I had never actually been with the soldiers until I read The Black Flower. Howard Bahr's seemingly authentic dialogue gave me the insight I needed to understand how men could once again form a line to confront the enemy as they did at Franklin in 1864. I could not put the book down, nor could my husband. Meeting certain people can have a positive influence on one's life; getting to read about Bushrod can have the same effect.

I started this book for a school report and I fell in love . I would reccomend this book to people who aren't afraid of adult language
