    It is July 10, 1863, and Baltimore is in the hands of the Army of Northern Virginia under the command of Robert E. Lee. Shattered remnants of the Army of the Potomac have fallen back into Washington, digging in, preparing to make a desperate stand. Six days earlier, General Ulysses S. Grant and his army of 60,000 had taken Vicksburg. The last telegram out of Washington before the rebels cut the line changed all that.

    Great Story!!!

    I really liked this book. Although fiction, it weaves an interesting tale that rings of actual history. The narrator adds a lot to this book with inte..Show More »

    Having pursued the remnants of the defeated Army of the Potomac up to the banks of the Susquehanna, General Robert E. Lee is caught off balance when news arrives that General Ulysses S. Grant, in command of over 70,000 men, has crossed that same river, a hundred miles to the northwest, and is advancing down the Cumberland Valley towards Virginia. The two brilliant generals will now meet in a massive battle that will decide the outcome of the war.

    With To Make Men Free, New York Times best-selling authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen take listeners to the center of a nearly forgotten Civil War confrontation, a battle that was filled with controversy and misinterpretation even before the attack began. Drawing on years of research, the authors weave a complex narrative interweaving the high aspirations of African American troops eager to prove themselves in battle and the anxiety of a president who knows the nation cannot bear another major defeat.

    Sad!!!

    Hard to listen to politically correct actions that killed men. Wow what a sad commentary on the generals of the civil war and especially Mead.
