Cartledge Creek (Paperback)
Born of contradiction, battered by bloody conflict, a young soldier desperately tries to find his way back home.
Jim Dockery was as unlikely soldier for the Confederate cause. His father, General Alfred Dockery, was Richmond County's most prominent opponent of secession and most vocal advocate for black suffrage.
Yet he was also the owner of the county's grandest plantation with one of its largest concentrations of slaves. Though he opposed the war, General Dockery sent six sons to fight for the Confederacy.
Jim, the youngest of Alfred's soldier sons, follows a Civil War path that takes him through some of the war's bloodiest conflicts, and into the North's deadliest prisons.
He daily risks his life for a cause of which he is uncertain, his real cause being to one day get back home.
