Sherman's and Morgan's men advance on Arkansas Post into the teeth of Rebel fortifications. The advance is costly. Job experiences the harshest realities of war. General McClernand receives early word that the Rebels, though vastly outnumbered, are holding their positions valiantly. But the battle is only just beginning.
Chronicles of War is a work of historical fiction. The story's lead character, Job Trites, was an ancestor of mine, and a member of Iowa's 26th Volunteer Infantry out of Clinton County, Iowa.
