A novel about the very real John Hunt Morgan, a Confederate general from Lexington, KY, who all KY children learn about in middle school history class. The author definitely takes some liberties with John Hunt Morgan's story, making him a bit more sympathetic, but this book reminds me why I'm proud to be from the great state of Kentucky.
