Timothy Donovan's story by Carolyn Reeder( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timothy Donovan isn't a coward ... not exactly. But he is prickly, overly defensive, stubborn to a fault, and not precisely certain he really wants to give his life for his country. In the first part of her Before the Creeks Ran Red trilogy, Reeder sets her young bugler in Charleston Harbor during the months leading to the firing on Fort Sumter and the irrevocable declaration of war between North and South that event precipitates. Along the way she takes on other complex topics: petty feuding between the non-commissioned men; the lack of faith in Sumter's southern-bred, vacillating commandant; near-starvation conditions within the blockaded island fortress. By the time the Stars and Stripes are lowered and Fort Sumter is evacuated, Timothy has done some maturing. But he's still not sure he wants to die for the Union. This is a provocative thought. That the choice might not be his is another one
