This book is a collection of historical stories centered around Milledgeville's participation in the War Between the States. Milledgeville was the capital of Georgia during the War. The stories are entertaining but historically accurate depictions of real events, men or women. While the book provides an insight into Milledgeville's or Baldwin County's history, the book is entertaining for old and young alike and is described as "captivating" by America's Civil War. Of special interest are little known stories based on eyewitness accounts of General Sherman during his occupation of Milledgeville.
"...the book is an important addition to any Georgia or Civil War collection." Kenneth H. Thomas, Atlanta Journal Constitution, September 11, 2005.
"Harrington's book adds much to the study of the social aspects of Georgia's wartime experience." America's Civil War, July 2007.
