This astonishing Civil War story follows the real-life exploits of a married couple who fought side-by-side as soldiers for the North, the South, and finally for a band of marauding, pro-Union partisans. Based on primary source material from the Watuga County, North Carolina archives, Rebels in Blue provides a fast-paced, gripping narrative of uncommon love and blind revenge set against the turmoil of the Civil War.
