Book Rec: Carrying the Flag by Gordon Rhea

25 11 2013

Rhea has written a series of books about the hard fought battles in “The Wilderness” of Northern Virginia during the American Civil War.  This book specifically touts the deeds of Charles Wilden, a 40 year old, epileptic passed over for service several times, but now serving as a flag bearer for the 1st South Carolina.

Rhea makes this battle personal in many ways throughout this abbreviated summary of that awful time in 1864, showing how one man’s courage can make a difference.
