Review by: David Michaels on Feb. 14, 2013 :
This is a compelling, well-researched account of the Michigan 24th and their combat experiences in the Civil War. It focuses on a group of friends and family from Wayne County. It is a welcome addition to CIvil War fiction energized by its story of common people rising to meet the challenges of extraordinary circumstances. I am generally not a fan of Civil War fiction, but I enjoyed this book greatly.
