About the Edition

This is the story of the Hill family - a family that gave the ultimate sacrifice for a cause they believed in: a free nation with the right to determine its own destiny. The problem was that the men of the family felt that this would be accomplished by fighting on opposite sides of the national conflict. The family sacrificed for both the Confederacy and the Union, giving up its sons in the process. With their family torn apart by a brutal war, and their home raided, the women at home suffered almost as much as the men. Travel back in time with noted Personal Historian Kathleen Shelby Boyett and experience the Hill family’s dramatic story of guerilla warfare in northwestern Arkansas and the battles in the southern theater during the Civil War, including the Siege of Vicksburg and the Atlanta Campaign. You will be reminded of the sacrifices people have made for our country, and this story will touch your heart.
