MELBOURNE, Fla. (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
Penned as a “what if” novel by the popular Civil War historian Art Morse, “Cheat Mountain: The Army of Northwest Virginia” (published by Trafford Publishing) looks at a forgotten Robert E. Lee battle and suggests the outcome could have been the turning point for the South.
Catching the fascination of readers everywhere, the book takes a deep look into a Union soldier’s bluff that unraveled a carefully executed battle plan by Robert E. Lee early in the war. However, in Morse’s novel, this bluff was never believed, allowing Lee’s plan to move forward. With his plan in motion, Lee is able to capture western Virginia and move toward Pittsburg.
An excerpt from “Cheat Mountain”:
The heady feelings of exaltation, the hopes for a quick end to the war, were fading from the minds of the residents of Richmond. The hospitals were full, though the last ambulance wagons arriving with the wounded from Manassas were just now approaching the outskirts of the city. Lincoln’s call for an entire new army had been ridiculed in Southern newspapers, but more sober men had come to conclude the North would not let the South leave the Union without paying a bitter price.
”Morse crafts a compelling piece of fiction… a logical progression of events… with accurately drawn historic figures… Morse relieves the strategy and battle heavy story with humor, championship and a touch of love story.” (The US Review of Books) Recommended by the USR
