)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published The Other Side of the Lines by Deanna Adamson. The author's most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the military biography category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/theothersideofthelines was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
The Other Side of the Lines is about several lesser-known Southern heroes of the Civil War.
Readers will read about Turner Ashby, the gallant Black Knight adored by Southern ladies. They’ll find out how Belle Boyd, a daring teenager, used all her charms to spy for her beloved South in spite of being arrested and jailed several times. They’ll see how Richard Kirkland, a young Confederate sergeant, showed compassion for Union soldiers on the battlefield at the risk of his own life. They’ll discover why Captain Sally Tompkins used her own fortune to open and run a hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers and was the only woman commissioned a Captain in the Confederate Army by President Jefferson Davis. They’ll try to understand why Sam Davis, a courageous teenage boy, would rather be hung than give damaging information about his commander to the enemy. They’ll sail with Lieutenant George Dixon, commander of the first submarine to sink an enemy ship in war and follow the story of Moses Ezekiel, just a cadet in a military school when he was called into battle to help protect the South.
Seven stories in all -- seven views of the fearless people of the South as they fought for their way of life.
