A stunning Civil War historical fiction, about the famous soldier Richard Etheridge, a sergeant in the newly formed African Brigade, tasked with rooting out guerilla rebels in eastern North Carolina. An extremely personal and human account of this period of our history, which also brilliantly manages to remind the reader that so many of these issues of racism and inequality continue to this day. I loved this book. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden
