The Unfinished Work


SKU: 078 Category:

After the Civil War’s opening battle in Manassas, VA, young Jake Becker escorted teens Eliza and Kathleen Bigler to stay with their relatives in his hometown of Hanover, PA. Now, two years later, more than 100,000 Confederate troops invade Pennsylvania, intent on winning their second War of Independence. Jake must decide which call to duty he must answer: fight for his belief in Southern freedom and earn Eliza’s love, or fight to end slavery – and win the heart of her sister? Incorporating many eye-witness accounts of the battles of Gettysburg, Hanover, and Hunterstown, “The Unfinished Work” features the cavalry duels between Jeb Stuart and George Armstrong Custer, culminating in the last great cavalry battle in world history. 336 pages, hardcover
