The Guns of Bull Run

Our rating: ***½

This book starts at the beginning of the Civil War. Harry Kenton is sent by his father, a prominent person in Kentucky, to tell the South Carolina leaders that Kentucky will follow it out of the Union. When Harry Kenton arrives in South Carolina, he delivers his message and soon after joins the Southern army. 

Out of Altsheler’s books that I’ve read, this is the one I’ve liked the least. It’s a little slow moving throughout the book. One interesting thing is that The Guns of Bull Run focuses on what is happening in the South.
