 Our Books

Traced with  Fire, Written in Blood is a brand-new book featuring stories of both famous and forgotten Georgians in the Civil War.  This Journal of Georgia Civil War History includes detailed accounts of notable Georgians like Robert Toombs and Alexander Stephens, along with little-known but riveting stories of the foot soldiers who served their state and country with steadfast determination.  You'll read about:
• A young Georgian who led his regiment into battle only to be court-martialed and dismissed from the Confederate Army;
• The one-legged veteran who defended his town when nobody else would;
• The Georgia belle who caught General Sherman's eye, and twenty years later, stayed his hand in war;
• A loyal and principled Confederate officer who met with President Abraham Lincoln to discuss Georgia withdrawing from the Confederacy.

Traced with Fire, Written in Blood is a 6" by 9" hardback book of more than 200 pages featuring more than 150 photographs, many never before published in book form.  $26.95
