Publisher Comments:

As John Bell Hood's Army of Tennessee literally disappears in a hail of cannon and rifle fire from the Union Army's entrenchments, young rifleman Bushrod Carter vividly imparts the Confederate charge and its deadly consequences. After he is brought to a makeshift hospital, Carter comes under the care of a young southern woman named Anna, who, even in the midst of battle and defeat, manages to find ways to express her love. Written with reverent attention to historical accuracy, The Black Flower is a powerful reminder that the war that divided America will not vanish quietly into the pages of history.

"This is powerful medicine, concentrated emotion. I finished it in one long draught, thinking as I read of Crane, Hemingway, Mailer, and Faulkner...but realizing at the end that it was altogether original". — Ernest B. Ferguson, author of Ashes of Glory and Chancellorville 1863

Unless you are from Tennessee or a Civil Buff you may not have heard of the battle in Franklin Tennessee. Here fierce hand-to-hand combat occurred where there were 5,500 Confederate casualties and 1,300 Union casualties. One of the bloodiest battles of the war was over in a few hours. Bahr takes you to Franklin and describes the savage fighting and the horrors of death of that battle. A must read! By Ruth Thompson author of “Natchez Above The River” and “The Bluegrass Dream”
