Reviews

McGinty has uncovered another compelling, little-known gem of American history...[He] impressively recounts this extraordinary story of a remarkable man, the 'first real hero of the conflict.' Race, patriotism, and personal heroism come together in this eye-opening early episode in Civil War history.
Vivid writing creates an exciting read, and McGinty's use of primary sources such as newspapers and government documents is exceptional. . . . McGinty dubs Tillman a hero and a patriot, one of the first during the Civil War. An important contribution to the shelf of Civil War histories, this story will transfix readers.--Patricia Ann Owens
