In July 1863, Confederate General James Longstreet may hold the key to turning General Lee's potentially catastrophic strategy at Gettysburg into war-deciding victory. One man's horrible tragedy can place ranks of the undead at Longstreet's disposal and turn the fate of the Confederate cause...if he dares. This dark novelette will hold you mesmerized until the wrenching end.

"A nice little read that skillfully intertwines the supernatural horror of zombies with the all-too-real horror of the Civil War."

"Honestly, this story is worthy of being converted to a short film or even a full feature, and I hope that happens."

"Incoporating zombies with a time-piece setting was cleverly done. The ending threw me for a loop and was executed perfectly."

Word count: ~ 13,500 + complete bonus story, "The Sound of Autumn Night"

Note that this story is also contained in William Van Winkle's "Specula One" collection.
