Even as he begins a tentative new relationship with the devout Clover, Mike falls under the spell of a ruthless white supremacist. Hardcover.

Antietam: The Lost Order explains why Harper’s Ferry was key to the Union victory in September 1862, the importance of the location and timing of the Battle of Antietam, and how its outcome influenced the future of our country.

With as much emphasis given to human foibles as to troop movements, this book will appeal to a wide audience beyond Civil War devotees.
