Bright Starry Banner

By

The American Civil War battle of Stones River (Murfreesboro) was a vicious killing match in central Tennessee that is largely forgotten by all but scholars and the most dedicated of Civil War enthusiasts. Alden Carter has brought this struggle back to life by telling its story through the words of participants. Using diaries and memoirs is hardly new, but the author’s skill in blending them together makes this novel an exhilarating experience for even the most critical reader.
