A classic novel of the Union Army at War

McElroy's novel of the American Civil War, The Red Acorn takes its title from the divisional insignia of the First Division of the Fourteenth Army Corps-a cornerstone of the Army of the Cumberland. The division fought at Mill Springs, Shiloh, Corinth, Stones River, Chickamauga, Mission Ridge, Atlanta, Jonesville, the March to the Sea and Bentonville. Under Thomas's command it never knew defeat and gathered to itself the laurels of dozens of victories and a reputation unsurpassed by any division in the war. McElroy's story is, of course, strongly based upon fact and many of the characters in his highly regarded novel actually served with, or were closely associated with, the First Division. Aficionados of historical novels and those of history of the war between the states in particular can be assured of a riveting, authentic and well-researched narrative.
