    " Interesting book. A fictionalized biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest. Often told from the viewpoint of a Haitian fighting in his army. I think it would have been a lot better id it had been delivered chronologically, though. "

    " My first book by this author and it won't be my last. Highly engaging "fictional" biography of Nathan Bedford Forrest who could have won the Civil War if the powers in charge had used him effectively. Worth your while to look at this. "

    " Eh, the magical realism throughout is pretty interesting, plus the chapters are arranged out of chronological order. It gives it a "mystic chords of memory" feel, but—but—one of the main plot points is NBF's recruitment of slaves into his company to fight against the Union. "
