Sacrifice at Shiloh Church
James Darby, a nineteen-year-old Union cavalryman from Springfield, Illinois, enlisted in Company A of the Second Illinois Volunteer Cavalry Regiment during the late summer of 1861 when the Civil War was not going well for the United States Army. From the beginning, James battled his nerves and doubted his courage before each engagement. It is through his eyes we see the carnage and horror of the war in West Tennessee. It was there that the misery of men fighting in a cold, wet winter illustrated the hardships and determination of both warring sides. James and his common soldier comrades were eyewitnesses to the earliest successes of Ulysses S. Grant and Grant’s subsequent rise to fame. Follow James as he finds the love of his life in the novel, First Dark.
