The American Civil War which is known also as The War for Constitutional Liberty, The War for Southern Independence, The War for States' Rights, Mr. Lincoln's War, and some thirty other names has long fascinated historians worldwide. To date more people died during this war than all other United States wars combined.
Was the abolition of slavery really the cause? The repugnant practice of slavery, which was waning in the nineteenth century, was touted as the reason for the national schism. Was it or was it emblematic for states’ rights and control by the federal government. Could the war have been averted or was it funded by rich and powerful interests and industrialist who would profit by the war?
The reason, although academic, is still debated. Were the confederates traitors or patriots? During this time a United States Citizen’s allegiance was thought to be to the State in which you were born not the United States.
“Civil War Battle Born” is a fiction novel based loosely on historical facts with two main fictional characters.
Nathan Lathrup backed by a greedy wealthy Nevada gold miner is charged with fanning the flames of war. Lathrup travels in posh rail cars meeting with influential statesmen, industrialist and newspapermen to help manipulate the direction of the northern sympathy’s.
Samuel Pickett a young southern VMI cadet who becomes an aid to Alexander Hamilton Stephens (Vice President of the Confederacy) is given the task of finding funding for the South to maintain the war effort. He along with his friend and freed slave Orin, traveled by horseback through the southern territories meeting obstacle after obstacle from hostel Indians, savage renegade Union Soldiers and uncharted desolate territories making their trip an escapade.
Both travelers head to the territory of Nevada which is rich in silver and gold. The question is who will make the most impact on the territory? Nevada was refused statehood prior to the Civil War, then after the beginning of the war was offered statehood by the North under terms outlined under the “Enabling Act” which was rushed through congress to ensure an electoral win for Lincoln.
It is historically accurate, that statehood, after offered to sway Nevada to join the union was decisively rejected by the people of Nevada. What happened? Somewhat historically sketchy and subject to conjecture Civil War Battle Born adds its own “What ifs?”
