Tales of the Civil War

Authored by Troy D. Smith

Short stories by Troy D. Smith, winner of the Spur and Peacemaker Awards

The American Civil War was by far the most dramatic time in U.S. history. No one could escape its influence who lived in America while it was fought; indeed, we can still not escape its influence today. It was a contest for the soul of the nation, to define who and what America was to be.

And that's a heck of a great setting for a story.

This volume is a collection of several Civil War short stories I've written over the years, as well as stand-alone excerpts from three novels. In some, the heroes are the Yankees and the villains are the Rebels-in others, vice versa.

It's all about perspective.
