The American Civil War tore at the very roots of our nation and destroyed most of a generation. To truly understand the madness and despair of such a horrendous conflict, one needs to pick a moment. Or see that war through one family’s eyes. In rural Arkansas, such were the Hancocks. Devastated by a cruel war, they faced down their personal hells and, in spite of it all, survived. Their survival is a testament to the power of love...and the American spirit. This is their story. And ours.

I'm sure this is true to life during the civil war. Good story but too descriptive and rauncy at times. but I felt like I was there.
