Overview
William Coleman thought he was on the way to success as a bank clerk in Chester, S.C., in the spring of 1861. Then his employer sent him a petticoat to shame him into joining the militia and fighting the Yankees. He did, sure "the silliness" would end once everyone calmed down. He was wrong. Really, really wrong. This is the story of a man who had to change to survive. It's the story of the Confederate soldier. It's the story of the sister who saw the war from home and the brother who fought it. It's the four-year story of the Sixth South Carolina, a regiment covered in glory, drenched in blood and filled by men who did their duty as they saw it and didn't think they were special. It's the real story of the South, unvarnished. History bonus: This edition features illustrations, photos and a postscript from descendants of William Coleman's family.
