Publisher's Summary

Official proclamation, United States Army:

General Order No. 28. Headquarters, Department of the Gulf, New Orleans, May 15, 1862: As the officers and soldiers of the United States have been subject to repeated insults from the women (calling themselves ladies) of New Orleans, in return for the most scrupulous non-interference and courtesy on our part, it is ordered that hereafter when any female shall, by word, gesture, or movement, insult or show contempt for any officer or soldier of the United States, she shall be regarded and held liable to be treated as a woman of the town plying her avocation. By command of Major General Butler.

Did this insulting decree spark the murder of a young US Army lieutenant in Yankee-occupied New Orleans? Or was it something else? Capt. Jason Bartlett, infantryman-turned-provost marshal investigator must wade through waves of Yankee anger and rebel animosity to solve the mystery.

    Story
    "snippet out of time"
    Would you listen to General Order No. 28 again? Why?

    Yes, the characters are so real.


    What does John Dzwonkowski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made the story sound as if someone was talking about a memory of what had really happened to him.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this story out of New Orleans history.
