Author J. Scott Payne melds the two seamlessly into a tale that will captivate the Historian and Fiction Lover as well. Joe Little mistakenly leaves the mundane danger of a logging life to enlist in the Union Army. Leaving behind his girl and the only life he [...]

      I love stories and historical accounts of the Civil War. I am a Gone with the Wind, North and South, Gettysburg movie junkie. I have seen each movie several times. I have been to Gettysburg and with all of the books I have read over the years, I could easily imagine the scenes that played out there. I've always enjoyed reading books by authors who take the time to do their research about the subject they are writing about. Even if it's fiction. If you are talking about a certain area of our coun [...]
