From Abraham Lincoln's White House to battles outside Dunker Church, "To Make Men Free brings to life this legendary battle and the events surrounding it. Abraham and Mary Lincoln grieve over the loss of their son while Robert E. Lee mourns the death of his daughter. And General Lee must be a commander when his youngest son pleads not to be sent "back in there." Croker paints flesh-and-blood portraits of such larger-than-life figures as George McClellan, John Pope, Stonewall Jackson, Jeb Stuart, and A. P. Hill. Hill is seen nearly entering into a duel with Stonewall Jackson, and he also has something to prove to his old West Point roommate, the Union commander George McClellan -- who married Hill's first true love. Much of the battle is seen through the eyes of Stonewall Jackson's fun-loving young adjutant, Kyd Douglas, and a little-known reporter named George Smalley, who dabbled briefly in mutiny and in the service of Horace Greeley, scooping the other reporters covering the story.
With verve and insight, Croker offers an indelible picture of this single day that dashed Southern hopes for a quick victory, denied the Confederacy crucial support from European allies, afforded the North the first clear indication that its troops had the dogged persistence to win, andultimately cleared the path for Lincoln's most enduring legacy -- the Emancipation Proclamation.
The Emancipation Proclamation and the Battle of Antietam are married in history but divorced in literature. "To Make Men Free reunites them in their original unhappy, bloody, and inseparable bonds.
A stirring tale of blood, glory, intrigue, mutiny, deceit, jealousy, revenge, nobility, and power, "To Make Men Free introduces a new voice in historical fiction.
