To Make Men Free: A Novel of the Battle of Antietam

By

Despite the fact that the U.S. Civil War Battle of Antietam was the single bloodiest day in the history of North America, the September 17, 1862, struggle is usually passed over in favor of the more popular Gettysburg. Basing his settings and dialogue largely on published historical accounts of participants, Richard Croker has written a dramatic and arresting account of the battle and the individuals involved. While the terrors of combat occupy center stage, the McClellan-Lincoln rivalry and the internal tensions within each army are not ignored.
