Christianity – We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the Church

We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the ChurchWe Confess
By Deborah P Brunt
Publisher: WestBow Press
ISBN: 978-1449731786
Pages: 300
Genre: Christianity
Format Available For Review: print, kindle, nook

We can’t undo the past. But we can repeat the past. Indeed, we do repeat it – until we take the hard look back and make the courageous changes needed to redeem the past.

Biblically anchored, historically accurate and spiritually profound, We Confess! The Civil War, the South, and the Church takes readers on a deeply personal journey back in time:

• revealing what we in the conservative US church culture haven’t wanted to see about our Deep South roots;
• showing how the unresolved past still fetters our churches, our families and our hearts;
• calling us out from entrapment in a false identity to become who we truly are.

In the spring of 1861, a country once united is fractured by war. Half of America fights for the Confederate cause; the other, for unification. Rebel forces have already seized Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines, a new Confederate president has been elected, and the Constitution has been revised. In northern Alabama, a farmer and father of three decides to enlist. For Hiram Summers, it is the end of everything he has ever known.

After Hiram travels to Virginia with the Fourth Alabama Infantry Regiment, he is quickly thrust into combat. His son, David, who must stay behind, searches for adventure at home by traipsing to Huntsville with his best friend, Jake Kimball, to scrutinize invading Yankees. Meanwhile, Caroline—Hiram’s wife and David’s mother—struggles to keep up with the farm as her world revolves around the letters she receives from her husband, whom she misses dearly. As Hiram and his son discover the true meaning of war, they soon realize that their choices have torn their family apart.

In this historical tale, the naivete of a young country is tested, a father sacrifices everything to defend his home, and a young man longs for adventure—regardless of the perilous cost.

Historical fiction – Redemption

Redemption (The Renegade Series)Redemption
Book Details
Author: Joe Prentis
Publisher: Joe Prentis
Published: January 2013
Genre: Historical Fiction

Washington 1865: As the American Civil War drew to a close, military and government leaders realized they were facing grave dangers they had not anticipated. There were many who did not understand that it was easier to start a war than it was to end one. The Confederacy was crumbling rapidly, and Generals Nathan Bedford Forrest and Robert E. Lee were willing to surrender, provided they could do so with honor. Many government and military leaders did not agree with President Lincoln’s intention to grant a full pardon to anyone who would agree to the terms of surrender. And the most difficult thing of all was the radicals who were not willing to give up a lost cause, and were determined to stop the peace process regardless of the cost.

Sergeant Oakley had gone through four years of endless conflict and hardship as a Union soldier. The war would be over in a week, they said, and he was eager to pursue his dreams in the western territories. His world was suddenly shattered when he came in contact with a girl named Anna, and a group of conspirators led by John Wilkes Booth. Oakley is torn between what he believes to be his duty, and his desire for vengeance.

Historical Memoir – Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations

Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and RuminationsDad's Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations
By Henry Frederick Cathcart
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 9781466291058
Pages: 244
Genre: Memoir/History

“Dad”, son of a Union Civil War soldier, and one of nine children, was born in 1872 on a farm on the great plains of Nebraska. Although Dad was born to be a farmer, he always had an insatiable desire for travel and adventure.

“Dad’s Reminiscences Reveries and Ruminations” was written in 1918 By Henry Frederick Cathcart (“Dad”) while stationed in France during World War one, where he served as a Mess Sergeant. It was there where he acquired the nick-name “Dad” because he was so much older than most of his fellow soldiers.

First published in 1919, “Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” includes Dad’s memoirs from early childhood on the Nebraska farm to his Army days in France. They are full of adventure, romance, and tales of sad and happy days from farm life to war in stories told mostly in poetry form that are all true, and give the reader a glimpse into the life of a plain-spoken but gifted storyteller nick-named “Dad”.

From an historical standpoint,”Dad’s Reminiscences, Reveries and Ruminations” shows insight into the first-hand experience, background, and personal life of a WW One soldier who joined the fray at a time when “doing my bit” was considered an admirable undertaking, as it still is for today’s soldier.
