A great second book of the series, this story follows the path chosen by a second brother. Every new book pulls you further into the Brannon family dynamic. Even if you don't believe in the South's cause, you want this family to succeed through their hardships - and even in battle.
This is the second book in Reasoner's Civil War series. It follows a fictional southern family during the war. I was particularly interested in this book as it is about the Battle of Shiloh where one of my ancestors fought. However, it focused on one of the Brannon brothers who worked on a steamboat. I was amazed when, a few days after finishing this book, I found out the son-in-law of one of my ancestors was on a steamboat in this battle!

I'm really enjoying these books and will soon start #3.

So far these novels climax with one of the most famous battles of the Civil War. This one was almost as good as the first one.
Not a bad plotline and liked the characters, but the bad characters were a little too fundamentally "bad", and the main characters a bit too lionized. Real issue with the book is the title, as the scene and setting isn't located at Pittsburg Landing until page 333 of this 360 page book. Was expecting a great deal more account of the actual battle of Shiloh, and this book depicts Fort Henry and Fort Donelson with equal billing. Actually, this book is more characterized as a fiction set in the set ...more
Second in the series, this one focuses on Corey, the brother who was barely mentioned in the first book. I didn't like him as much as I did the other brothers at first, but he grew on me. I am enjoying the series so much I started #3 as soon as I finished #2. Book #3 Antietam picks up back in Culpeper at the family farm.
I really enjoyed this second book in Mr. Reasoner's Civil War historical fiction series. This volume focuses on Cory and his travails as he encounters the war in the West. I enjoyed this book a bit more that the first. On to the next volume.
It was a good continuation of Manassas in the fictional Civil War Battle Series by James Reasoner. I had to go check out my geography along the Mississippi River paths though.
