In “Blake’s Story, Revenge and Forgiveness” (published by Xlibris) author J. Arthur Moore has written a remarkable account of the human spirit, set during the Kentucky campaign of 1862 in the American Civil War, follows young Civil War soldiers who realize that their enemies are real people just like them. If it weren’t for the war, they could be friends.

“Blake’s Story, Revenge and Forgiveness” is an enthralling story set in the blood-stained battlefields of the American Civil War. Blake Bradford, a young Confederate soldier who is in the war to find and kill the Union soldier who killed his father at Shiloh, falls into the hands of the enemy when he is wounded at Perryville. But the young Federal soldiers who recover him from the battlefield and take him into their company and protect him and get treatment for him, become close friends. In battle at Richmond and Perryville in Kentucky and Stones River in Tennessee, young Blake comes face to face with the horrors of war and the gut-wrenching destruction and aftermath of battle with its loss of life and of friends, wounded and killed. He no longer wants to kill Yanks. He just wants to go home.

For those who believe in humanity and goodness in the human spirit, in spite of the horrors of war, “Blake’s Story, Revenge and Forgiveness” is a must read. Of special interest, the plot line was created and written by the 11-year-old great-grandson of the author. Also of interest, those who experience the story with Blake Bradford will be experiencing history as it happened. The regiments in the story and their histories are real. The events of the story are researched for historic accuracy.
