Overview
Two brothers are faced with whether or not to join the Confederate Army. One decides to voluntarily enlist, while the other joins only after being drafted. The brothers' episodes reflect the chronicles of the "Granville Rifles," a Company within the NC 23rd Regiment. From the Battle of Bull Run to Sherman's occupation of Raleigh, the plight of each boy gives the reader an insider's glimpse of the war. Left behind on the family farm are their parents and siblings. Relive what a Southern family had to endure during the war years. All major events seem to originate on the home's unique circular rock steps. Soldiers leave for and return from war, slaves are freed, Yankees pay a visit, and suitors come a calling. The epic story of this Southern family is a unique blending of historical fiction with a storyline that reflects the resilience of the human spirit. The book is the result of over 40 years of genealogy research of the author. All characters are based on actual people living during the Civil War, with many events being based on eyewitness accounts as recorded by the soldiers in letters written home. This second edition adds another 50 pages of information, incorporating facts learned since the first edition was written in 2012, as well as many more photos and maps. An Afterword section is added to tell "What happened to them." The first edition received the 2013 NC Society of Historians Award for Historical Fiction.
