This book was given to me by a coworker who is from Wales and is very knowledgeable about the US Civil War. Nathaniel Starbuck is the son of a Boston preacher who finds himself about to be tarred and feathered while in Virginia. He is rescued by a man with a grandiose view of himself, and the Confederacy. Nate finds himself enmeshed in a web of relationships that propels him into the midst of the conflict, and he fights reluctantly, but bravely. In the end, he substantially adds to the successful routing of the Yankees by the brave Southern Freedom Fighters at the battle of Manassas (aka Bull Run). This is the first book in the “Nate Starbuck” series that consists of four books: Rebel, Copperhead, Battle Flag, and Bloody Ground.
I am grateful to Norm for giving me this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, being on my father’s side, deeply rooted in the Old South. In fact, I’m a direct descendant of a Confederate officer. More . . . Louis Hemmi – Houston, Texas 10/1/2011

Jeepers! It is so cold outside, and I got even colder getting out there to crack the spigots open a bit. I just barely made it in time with one of them, as when I opened the faucet, no water came out. So, I went in the house and got a pitcher of hot water from the tap, and poured this over the faucet. I was relieved when the water started flowing. I also found that the faucet on my bedroom patio is pretty corroded. The previous owners had wrapped it tight — so tight that it held in the moisture and corroded the pipe. I’ll have to replace it, but I hope I can wait until the weather warms up. Will write more when I’m not shivering. I’m reading “The Hunt for Confederate Gold” by Thomas Moore and I LOVE it so far. I think one reason I like it is that my roots run deep in Georgia, am eligible for membership in the Military Order of the Stars and Bars as a descendant of a Confederate officer, and Mr. Moore writes in a style that I much admire.
