I’m not usually a big fan of poetry, but I really enjoyed the poems in this book, especially ‘’Stonewall’’. They were beautiful and haunting at the same time and brought the war to life in a unique way.
This author brings the forgotten and overlooked protagonists of our country’s darkest conflict into the light with love and empathy.
I was blown away!
This book does an incredible job of telling the stories of the people who were often forgotten during the Civil War. The stories are both heartbreaking and inspiring and frame the war from a more personal perspective. I highly recommend this book.
