Item Description

They were Scotch-Irish, Presbyterian, first-generation Americans. They were alike in many ways but different in one trait that mattered. One was Union; the other, Confederate. James McCaskey, a member of the Roundhead Regiment, came from a farm in western Pennsylvania. He believed in individual rights for all men. Gus Smythe, Washington Light Infantry, 24th South Carolina, was a college student and a supporter of states' rights. This is the true story of how they came to their opposing position, and how the Battle of Secessionville altered not only their own lives, but the lives of those who share their experiences. Schriber has produced an ambitious study of the Battle of Secessionville, the first re-examination of the impact of that battle in over a decade. She offers a fresh perspective and a valuable new approach to some of issues concerning the American Civil War.
