Hell%27s Broke Loose in Georgy by Scott Walker


Author: Scott Walker
Genre: Nonfiction
Publication Date: 2005
Book Description: Relatives and neighbors served and died side by side in the Fifty-seventh [Georgia Regiment CSA], and Walker excels at showing how family ties, friendships, and other intimate dynamics played out in wartime settings. Humane but not sentimental, the history abounds in episodes of real feeling: a starving soldier’s theft of a pie; another’s open confession, in a letter to his wife, that he may desert; a slave’s travails as a orderly.

"
Let us not disregard the heritage of any African-American freedman or slave who ultimately made tough life or death choices on the freedom road in which he or she labored in paving for many generations to travel on this day."
