9781565549784: Kincaid's Battery

"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."

Set in sultry New Orleans during the Civil War, this novel tells the story of a certain Confederate 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.

One of the South's greatest writers of all time, George Washington Cable brings this story to life with his skilled use of beautiful language and detailed description. His words paint images that leap to life from the page. His extensive knowledge of the history of New Orleans and the South is evident in Kincaid's Battery.
