A Fierce Glory: Antietam — The Desperate Battle That Saved Lincoln and Doomed Slavery

A FIERCE GLORY is a character-rich, modern-style account of an 1862 Civil War battle that was more important than Gettysburg and—with a death toll of 3,650 soldiers—remains the bloodiest single day in U.S. history. Lincoln is woven deeply into this tale, far more than in a standard military history of the battle. The rich cast also includes: generals George McClellan and Robert E. Lee, medical pioneers Clara Barton and Jonathan Letterman, and Alexander Gardner, the groundbreaking photographer.
