Seventeen year old Augustus DuBois is called upon, with
his local militia members, to help stop the Rebel secession
at the fi rst battle of Bull Run. When this fails, the war begins
to stretch out and Augustus decides to extend his enlistment
to try to help fi nish the task. At the siege of Petersburg
Augustus and two of his companions are captured and sent to
the Andersonville prison. Here he sees and experiences man’s
inhumanity to man regardless of which side he is on. He hears
the quandry of the prison commander whose calls for aid
fall on deaf ears. After escaping the prison, Augustus and his
companions join general Sherman’s forces on the infamous
“March to the Sea”. The war ends and after some serious soul
searching, Augustus makes a decision that sends him back into
the South. The book explores the issues of responsibilty and
chain of command and whether the victors can set the rules
and write the history.
