Jack Hinson's One Man War CW book
« on: September 19, 2011, 12:58:32 pm »
Written by a Retired Marine Col.  this  is a riveting account of a man who wanted to be left alone but who turned into a Phantom of the woods sending dozens of men in blue to an early grave to avenge the deaths of his teenage sons.

I bought it last April and I have read it through 4 times and loaned it out to a fellow teacher over the summer.

If you read only 1 CW book this year read this one.

It has been on sale at Amazon.  Mr. Hinson teenaged sons were killed by Yankees and their severed heads set on the post of the gate to the Hinson Home.   Mr. Hinson comforts his wife and buries the boys and sets out to build a great rifle and set out on his personal war against the UNION.

As we are now in the 4th year of celebrating the 150 anniversary of the Civil War. This is one you should read.

Sounds like The Outlaw Josey Wales to me...

The Killer Angels is a GREAT CW read.  Historical novel about the battle of Gettysburg.
