Raiding With Morgan




In the summer of 1863, Brigadier-General John Hunt Morgan led two thousand Confederate soldiers across the Ohio River into southern Indiana. Pursued by fifteen-thousand Union calvary, infantry, and militia, Morgan's Raiders blazed a trail of destruction unparalled in Civil War history. In forty-six days, they covered one-thousand miles, destroyed thirty-four bridges, and captured six-thousand enemy soldiers. But only a handful of Morgan's men would live to tell the tale...
Born in the heart of Kentucky, Ty Mattson never knew his parents. His mother died in childbirth while his father went off to fight in the Mexican War. For seventeen years, Ty never discovered why his father didn't return. But when he receives news that his father is alive--and he's joined the forces of General John Morgan--the boy leaves home to enlist with the Raiders, hoping to finally meet the father he never had.
Owen Mattson turns out to be everything Ty ever imagined he would be: a good man, a true mentor, and a great soldier. But once they are drawn into the Great Raid of 1863, destiny divides father and son yet again. From the blood-soaked chaos of the battlefields to Morgan's devastating defeat at Buffington Island, to the harsh brutality of a Union prison, Ty Mattson will do whatever it takes to fight and survive.
