Kincaid's Battery

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Publisher:

"Throughout that land of water and sky the willow clumps dotting the bosom of every sea-marsh and fringing every rush-rimmed lake were yellow and green in the full flush of a new year, the war year, ‘Sixty-one."

From the Back Cover:

"No man can be such who cannot, whether alone or among thousands of his fellows, strive, suffer and wait with magnanimous patience, stake life and fortune, and, in extremity, fight like a whirlwind, for the victories of peace."

Set in sultry New Orleans during the Civil War, Kincaid's Battery tells the story of a certain army artillery unit. It provides an account of the experiences of Hilary Kincaid's Battery, or "the ladies' men," as they are more playfully called, and gives insight into the nature of war, hope, and peace.

Cable, once called the most important Southern artist working in the late nineteenth century, brings this story to life with his skilled use of beautiful language and detailed description. His words paint images that seem to leap to life from the page. His extensive knowledge of the culture and history of New Orleans and the South is evident in Kincaid's Battery.
