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.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt: .they talked with the jeweller. He could himself do the job, he said, roughly but well enough. Anna smiled at the fanciful scheme. Yet--yes, its oddity was in its favor. So many such devices were succeeding, some of them to the vast advantage of the Southern cause. When Flora the next evening stole a passing glance at the ugly trinket in its place she was pleased to note how well it retained its soilure of clay. For she had that day used it to free the panel, behind which she had found a small recess so fitted to her want that she had only to replace panel and tool and await some chance in the closing hours of the show. Pleased she was, too, to observe that the old jewels lay in a careless heap. Now to conceal all interest and to divert all eyes, even grandmama s! Thus, however, night after night an odd fact eluded her: That Anna and her hero, always singly, and themselves careful to lure others away, glimpsed that disordered look of the gems and unmolested air of the knife with a content as purposeful as her own. Which fact meant, when came the final evening, that at last every sham jewel in the knife s sheath had exchanged places with a real one from the loose heap, while, nestling between two layers of the sheath s material, reposed, payable to bearer, a check on London for thousands of pounds sterling. Very proud was Anna of her lover s tremendous versatility and craftsmanship. XXXIX TIGHT PINCHFrom Camp Viller. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781489509055
