Author Karl Bacon has given readers a beautifully written, beautifully edited novel that richly describes the land and the mindset of southerners during the Civil War. Bacon is also strong in his characterization and masterfully fleshes-out Stanley Mitchell, who readers see change and mature into an honorable young man. Kristine Hall for Reader Views (10/15/15).

Read the entire review

Karl Bacon is going to get me in trouble. I read his book in just a few days and it was a great temptation to just turn off my computer and phone at work and read his marvelous novel instead. Well plotted, gracefully written, and completely engaging.  (Amazon Reader Review)

I loved this book! The characters are so human and yet thought provoking. (Amazon Reader Review)

I really loved this book! I want the next one! Kept me intrigued the whole time and now I wait! Please Mr. Bacon and get the next one done fast! (Amazon Reader Review)

“I’m done with this war. I paid a heavy price. I did my duty. With honor.”

Stanley Mitchell in Prairie Dog Town

Stanley Mitchell’s Civil War saga continues in Book 2 of the Shiloh Trilogy. Much of the story is set in the city of Vicksburg, Mississippi, during the 47-day siege. Because many of the residents lived in caves dug into the earth, some Federal soldiers said Vicksburg looked like a village of prairie dogs. And I thought that would make a great title.

Expected release July-August 2016.
